Warbirds & Wheels display of classic & vintage cars & military aircraft closed on 7 September 2021.

Feature Car:  Duesenberg

This 1934 Duesenberg Model JA is one of only a handful of its kind believed to be outside of the United States and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.  According to Duesenberg records, the original owner of the car was Hollywood actress Carole Lombard who shared her passion for luxury cars, especially Duesenbergs, with her husband Clark Gable.  A full restoration was carried once it had arrived in Wanaka.

On display in the Art Room with a 1931 Auburn, this spectacular display must not be missed.
