at the Houston Classic Auction, May 5th, there is a so called 1932 Duesenberg Model J LWB Custom Speedster under offer (without reserve).

In my eyes, the body-design is one of the ugliest, ever mounted on a Model J chassis :rolleyes:

Hello,

Worldwide Auctioneers published a salesprice about $ 297000 for that car.


Cheers

Thanks, Matt. The car was bought by a Club member and will probably make its way to Auburn at some point. I don't think he has decided what he is going to do with the car yet. Stay tuned.

If the body of that car was removed, I wonder what the value of the body would be.

Interesting question. The only two comparable postwar "specials" that have survived are 2432 / J-415 and 2420 / J-409. 2420/ J-409 was rebodied period-correctly as a Rollston Convertible Torpedo Victoria and the postwar body survives although I'm unaware of its present whereabouts. 2432 / J-415 I believe is being rebodied as it was originally; I don't know of the fate of its special body.

The Kollins-LaGrande doesn't use a J chassis, just an engine, so it isn't quite in the same category.

I'd have a lot of fun with that car! I'd put on my cowboy hat and boots, and a fringed cowboy vest, plus a pair of six shooters, and go out and rile up the town!

It does kinda have a proto-Nudiemobile look to it, doesn't it?
