Did I miss something, or was there a complete lack of Duesenbergs at the Arizona auctions last week?

Hello,

$700k for a supercharged La Grande DCP sounds not so much money for it.

Is there something "wrong" with the car, like a very poor condition or a lot of replica-parts?


Cheers

Matt

EDIT: According to B-J's car description J-562 is equiped with a recreated (replica) body http://www.barrett-jackson.com/Archive/ ... TON-180519

I watched the car come up on the auction block. there just was not enough interest. I have always felt that some cars should not be sold at BJ. I also inquired into a post auction sale price. if anyone would like that number send me a PM.

The car itself was fairly nice. not to many issues that i could see. Granted that being a rebody hurts its value. it does have a interesting story on he factory switching bodies and being a factory demo car.

Many of these cars are like George Washington's hatchet.The blade and handle have been replaced at least four times.Also there are better ways to spend $750,000 than on a car that can't be enjoyed the way it should be.
