This car is a bit controversial to some but it is one of my top 10 favorite Duesenbergs. Perhaps that's due to my affinity for European styling.

Every time I see a judge question whether or not a certain color scheme could have been ordered on a Classic in the period, I think of black paint and lilac leather. Anything goes.

One of the Spindletop Oil Families had a purple Pierce Arrow in the late 1920's. If you have enough money you can always "have it your way."

Probably the last one to come out of a contemporary custom shop. As I recall,the chassis was a pieced together thing with a redone engine that was damaged years earlier and a used supercharger and I think a sectioned frame to give it the ordered wheel base. As a finished car,I agree with Al,it is an elegant and truly superb example of a custom built car. I find the cycle style front fenders not only good looking but they make the engine easier to service as well..The twin spares at the rear are a nice touch as well.
When I rode in it years ago at Auburn it had less than 12,000 miles on it.
