One of Stanley Wanlass’ most evocative bronzes is the sculpture presented here, High Gear, which depicts the famous Duesenberg Model J “Tapertail” Speedster, engine number J-437, at speed, with its passengers soaking up the magical experience. As only 34 numbered editions were produced, they are extremely sought after and difficult to find.
