Duesenberg

Duesenberg SJ Lagrande Dual-Cowl Pheaton from 1935.

The price of this car was $8500 for the chassis with motor and $12000 for the bodywork. In the same time you could buy a new Ford for $ 500. Owned by people like Clark Gable, Greta Garbo and king Alfonso XIII of Spain the car had a compressor and could reach a speed of 210 km/h. From this model 35 where made. With thanks to the Louwman car museum.
One for weekend reflections here.

  2. What a beauty. I am going to a local car show today but most certainly will not see a Duesenberg.
