I always thought this JN 2587 559/500 was one of the most beautiful closed cars I have ever seen in the 1930's and I was particularly drawn to it in its original photos as seen in the book Olympian Cars.

I would have never guessed it's current brown would have been the same as what is in original photos of the car, all be it maybe it looks lighter without a matching color keyed top.

Agreed, whlle I'm not gererally a fan of later Duesenberg "architecture" and the JN in particular, this one flows beautifully. I spent some time with a previous owner in Seattle a few years back. I really enjoyed that he drove this car out there from the mid west when he moved many years ago. The trip was documented in "The Classic Car" some years ago.
