Clark Gable's multi-million dollar Duesenberg

Bidders were willing to pay over $6 million for this Hollywood car, but it still wasn't enough.

Tragedy strikes

On the way home from a WWII "war bond tour" in 1942, Lombard was killed in a plane crash. After that, Gable said he could never ride in the Duesenberg again. He asked that it be sold somewhere outside the state of California so he would never have to see it again.
