This 1928 Diana Deluxe features an L-head, straight-8 engine with a peak horsepower of 72. It was photographed at The Nethercutt Collection in Sylmar, Calif.
“In Roman mythology, Diana is the goddess of the Moon,” states a Nethercutt display summary next to the vehicle. “An appropriate name because Diana was manufactured by the Moon Motor Co. of St. Louis, Mo.
“The Diana was a very stylish and well-built automobile that took most of its cues from the Belgian automobile company ‘Minerva,” another famous car with a goddesses’ name.”
This Diana cost $2,195 in 1928 dollars when new.
