1930 Duesenberg Model J Convertible








The Model J was introduced at the New York Automobile Salon in 1928. Its straight-eight engine of 265 hp could produce speeds over 115 mph. The wheelbase was 142.5 inches; brakes were vacuum-assisted (after 1930), oversized and hydraulic. The use of aluminum alloy kept the weight of this huge vehicle to about 5200 lbs. By 1932, supercharged engines claiming 320 hp were offered. 1937 was the last model year for the classic Duesenberg. Today, the Model J's are prized by collectors everywhere who pay exorbitant prices for good examples. More than 75% of all Duesenbergs exist today - 55% of them still operable.
