Rare 1920s cars on display at Reynolds-Alberta Museum

Rare cars of the 1920s, including a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and the only Duesenberg on public display in Canada, will be star attractions as the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin unveils its Luxury Cars of the Roaring Twenties exhibit on May 21.

More than 25 rolling status symbols will display the ultimate achievements in automotive technology from this brief, exciting period of post-World War I prosperity. Visitors will discover the spirit of the Roaring Twenties, when automobiles came into their own as features of modern life.

Snippets of period fashion and music will bring to life a time when the world craved the new and everything seemed possible.

Some of the vehicles retain their original opulence, while others are diamonds in the rough. Featured vehicles include:

• 1918 Winton Six Touring Car, painstakingly restored by the museum’s restoration professionals to 1922 condition

• 1923 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

• 1924 Packard Model 226 Touring

• 1926 Marmon Model 74 Sedan

• 1929 Duesenberg Model J, the only Duesenberg on public display in Canada

As of May 21, the Reynolds Alberta Museum will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through to Sept. 5.
