No sneaking around town
1935 Duesenberg SJN
From around 1913 to 1937, the Duesenberg brothers produced some of the finest automobiles ever. If you had the bucks, these cars were IT. When you bought a Duesenberg, you got the frame, engine, and drivetrain. While the company did offer their cars with completed bodies designed and built by a closely associated operation, many buyers elected to have custom designers and fabricators finish off their car. It was common to have these completed cars exceed $25,000 to $30,000 …..around $500,000 in today's money. Clark Gable was one of the owners who swore by their cars. A picture I took of Clark's magnificent ride ( not the car shown here ) was published in a book about his life.
