We haven’t a clue on this one, likely the original or later
owner, and/or the designer/builder of the car.
The words, “Dudley Sportster”
is engraved into two brass plaques found
inside the step plates on each running board.
They appear worn from time and use. Under
the hood on the firewall is a metal
with the marking of “3” which also appears aged and its meaning is
also unknown to us. If you know who Dudley
is, please tell us!
Regarding the “Sportster” part of the “Dudley
have never heard of a “Sportster” anything other than referring
Harley motorcycle, perhaps it is a contraction and shortening of the
Roadster” into “Sportster” as this was a 1932 Plymouth Sport Roadster
other words, the name Sport Roadster pushed
into one word (SportRoadster) and eliminating the “Road” part, thus
new word contraction “Sportster.”
Shows: The only car shows we know of that the Dudley
Sportster attended are the ones we put the car in which is the 2007 & 2008 Good Guys
Scottsdale Arizona and a small church parking lot show in Phoenix
in 2006, 7, 8 at 7th
Avenue and Bethany Home. If you have seen this car or have photos from any
other source, please let us know!
We hope you have enjoyed seeing the Dudley Sportster and if
you have any knowledge about the history of this car before 2006,
contact us! Thank you…
