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. Making this rendition even more special, it is an artist's proof; numbered "AC/34," it rests on a solid marble base (distinct from the wood and marble bases found on regular versions). It is accompanied by a rarely seen certificate of authenticity complete with the artist's signature and fingerprint.
