Duesenberg II Torpedo Sedan “ Twenty Grand “ @ Volo Auto Museum on My Car Story with Lou Costabile
On "My Car Story" we're in Volo IL on 2-7-17. We're looking at a Duesenberg II Torpedo Sedan “Twenty Grand”. Today I'm speaking with Brian Grams, Director of the Volo Auto Museum, and he shares the name “Twenty Grand” came from the car’s price back in the 1930’s when the car sold for $20,000.00 dollars. The “Duesenberg II” was produced between 1978 and 2000 by the Elite Heritage Motors Corp and successor company Duesenberg Motors Inc. in Elroy Wisconsin. Each one was copied from an original and visually almost identical past car, with Ford Lincoln drive train, and a Ford V8 engine and modern comfort features. Fewer than 100 “Duesenberg II’s” were made in total. The car's located at Volo Auto Museum, 27582 Volo Village Rd., Volo IL 60073.

Duesenbergs Designed and Built
The Auburn Cord Duesenberg company wasn't a mass producer. It built luxury cars that were powerful and beautiful. The company came together with a racing heritage and the speed of its engines was always a selling point to those who wanted the best and the fastest cars.
