Evaluation: Spectacular paint, chrome, upholstery, glass, and top. A concours Duesenberg restored a dozen years ago for David Kane, class winner at Pebble Beach in 2011 and maintained in concours condition since then by the current owner. Represented as the original frame, firewall, engine, and coachwork.
Bottom Line: This is an outstanding Duesenberg bodied with one of Murphy’s best designs and one of few Model Js to remain together throughout its life with stewardship by several classic car collector stalwarts. Its acceptance at RM Amelia surprised even the usually optimistic pre-sale estimate. A great car for which a great price was paid.
