1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Convertible Coupe $4,510,000 SOLD!
1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Convertible Coupe $4,510,000 SOLD! With Commission Top Sale RM Auction Amelia Island 2013 320 bhp, 420 cu. in. DOHC inline eight-cylinder engine with centrifugal Supercharger, three-speed manual transmission, beam type front and live rear axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and vacuum-assisted four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 142.5 in. •Arguably the most beautiful convertible coupe on the Duesenberg chassis •One of three produced, and the only supercharged example •Believed equipped with an original Supercharger •Formerly the property of Raymond Lutgert and General William Lyon •Driven extensively, including the Texas and Wyoming Duesenberg Tours As advanced as the Model J Duesenberg was upon its introduction in 1929, most of the technical advancements contained within were confined to the body and chassis. The design of the front end and fenders, as well as that of most coachbuilt bodies, still bowed toward late-1920s convention, albeit stylishly. As a result, by the mid-1930s, the Duesenberg still held mechanical prowess over virtually everything else on the road. From a design standpoint, however, it was looking rather dated. J. Herbert Newport, who had succeeded Gordon Buehrig as Duesenberg's body designer, set out to do something about that. Among his creations for the Model J was a new convertible coupe, which incorporated the best of the Duesenberg's trademark styling cues with the curves of modern streamlining. The traditional upright radiator shell and headlights were now accompanied by deeply skirted and rounded fenders, designed by Alex Tremulis and added at the factory branch, over 17-inch wheels. The beltline began as a slender molding running alongside the hood, and as it reached the windshield, it expanded out along the sides of the body into a polished "sweep," which then fell back along the long fender like a trailing comet. The design's most innovative feature, however, was its convertible top. Most ragtops of the period were clumsy and challenging, requiring a small gang to operate properly. Newport's convertible coupe incorporated a "semi-automatic" top, based on one previously created for a Rollston-bodied Duesenberg convertible victoria. The owner would unbuckle the top from the windshield frame, and then slip a hand crank into a chromed socket on the side of the body. With a few turns of the crank, the top would fold to the rear of the car and out of sight under its flush-fitting metal lid, producing an open two-passenger car whose lithe, flowing lines made it the Duesenberg equivalent of the Mercedes Special Roadsters of the era. Production of this body style was handled by the A.H. Walker Body Company, of Indianapolis, one of several firms that produced bodies for Duesenberg under the classy pseudonym of "LaGrande." With Duesenberg's days waning and the Great Depression still largely at its zenith, Walker built only a mere three examples of the Newport-designed convertible coupe. Of the three cars, 2563/J-530 was the only example built with a factory-supercharged engine—the powerplant today famously referred to by enthusiasts as "SJ." The engine bore a centrifugal Supercharger, which was constantly engaged, and produced whizz that is music to the ear of the Duesenberg enthusiast, as well as an additional 60 horsepower. That made the final brake horsepower rating of an SJ Duesenberg something near 320 horsepower, allowing it to get ever-closer to a top speed of 140 miles per hour, over 20 miles an hour faster than a naturally-aspirated example. Perhaps it was that added performance that prompted Chicago banker John Nichols to trade in his earlier Duesenberg Murphy Convertible Coupe, 2475/J-405, for this car. Nichols chose to part with his second Duesenberg only two years later, trading it in at South Shore Buick of Chicago in February 1937, with 50,899 miles showing. The car then passed to a Packard dealership in Evanston, Illinois, and for well over a decade, it would remain largely within the Chicago area, including time spent in the care of legendary used Duesenberg purveyor John Troka. In 1940, it was involved in an accident, which resulted in the frame being replaced with the current unit, 2405. At some point, the car's original bell-housing, J-530, was replaced with J-515, thus renumbering the engine; importantly, the original engine does still remain in the car today. In 1957, the Duesenberg showed up on the opposite coast of the United States, incongruously parked on a used car lot in "Glitter Gulch," Hollywood, California. Early enthusiast Thomas Magee, of nearby Inglewood, spotted the car and picked it up for $1,500, and he then took it home and began its restoration. As so often happens with restorations, life intervened, and Magee sold the car and another Duesenberg to his good friend and fellow collector, Nathan Derus. Robert Myrick Photography

1933 Duesenberg SJN "20 Grand" -1
This car costed an unheard of price of 20,000 dollars in 1933 (mostly interior features) and was put on a Supercharged Chassis. Its an Arlington Torpedo Sedan and received more attention to chassis detail and finish than any other Duesenberg constructed. It was built for the 1933/1934 Chicago World's Fair.





1935 Duesenberg SJ Speedster "Mormon Meteor" -1
This is one of the most influential cars in American history, designed to break the 24 hour (and higher) speed record (and other records) and hit speed in excess of 150 mph. It used a V12 Conqueror aviation museum to get these speeds and then after retiring for record making, got its special tuned Lycoming Straight 8 supercharged engine (400HP+). PS- this is a special 201th video... (everyone else does 200th ones)
