If you were the richest girl in the world and were given the opportunity to
have a custom car designed and built for you, what would you have built?
Tobacco heiress, Miss Doris Duke ( 11/22/1912 - 10/28/1993), was born in 1912
and, at age twenty five in 1937, visited the Rollston body company in New York
City and commissioned those prestigious automotive body builders to produce her
dream car. She was chauffeured many times from her estate at Duke Farms in New
Jersey to her mansion at Rough Point in Newport, Rhode Island in this beautiful
1938 V-12 Packard Landaulet by Rollston. In 2007, Dick Shappy found the car in
need of total restoration.
