THE DORT 25-K

William Crapo Durant and Josiah Dallas Durant formed the Durant-Dort Carriage Company in 1886. Dort, a true carriage man, eventually entered the car game in 1915 with support from Durant. The chief designer, Ettiene Planche, had come from Chevrolet where he was responsible for that firm's first models.

The conservative and well-engineered Dorts proved to be decent sellers. In 1920 the company produced 30,000 cars and 107,000 Dorts were produced all together. The four-cylinder cars were all Lycoming powered and later a six was added to the line produced by Falls. The sporty six featured disk wheels and in the mid-twenties the line adopted a Rolls Royce style radiator.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This is without question the Dort with the best provenance, being owned by the two giants of antique car collecting William Harrah and JB Nethercutt. Beautifully restored, likely by Harrah's, it is a wonderful example of this respected make.

Beautifully finished in Brewster green with the correct top and interior materials, this fine Dort displays the quality restoration usually reserved for much higher end automobiles.

This example from the last year of production is the desirable six-cylinder model 25-K. It is powered by the Falls six motor that featured innovative overhead valves for snappy performance.

There is no better chance to get a benchmark Dort. With superb provenance and a great restoration, this could be the finest Dort of them all.
