1933 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupe





$3,500,000 - $4,500,000 


  • J-386/2421, ACD Certified 
  • Rare and unique Bohman and Schwartz Disappearing-Top Convertible Coupe coachwork
  • Purchased new by Academy award-winning actress Marie Dressler with LeBaron Convertible Sedan coachwork
  • Acquired by Hollywood director/producer Roy Del Ruth who commissioned Bohman and Schwartz to upgrade the coachwork in 1933
  • Bohman and Schwartz skirted the fenders; elongated the hood; raised the deck and sculpted the tail to better conceal the fuel tank and chassis
  • Of the 6 LWB Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupes, this is the only example to wear Bohman and Schwartz coachwork
  • Bohman and Schwartz only built 14 bodies total for Duesenberg, 10 of which were placed on cars with pre-existing coachwork. Notable cars with upgraded Bohman and Schwartz coachwork include the Clark Gable SWB Convertible Coupe J-560, the Mae West SWB Convertible Coupe J-370 and the Phillip Wrigley SWB Convertible Sedan J-464
  • Formerly part of The Harrah Auto Collection, The Blackhawk Collection and The Imperial Palace Collection
  • Documented by multiple well-respected Duesenberg historians including: Fred Roe, Ray Wolff, Gerry Gebby, Don Butler, Dean Batchelor, J. Elbert, Keith Brown, Don Howell and Dennis Adler
  • Featured in Dennis Adler's Duesenberg book and Josh Malks' Illustrated Duesenberg Buyer's Guide
Every so often, like a debutante at the cotillion ball, a regal classic-era Duesenberg Model J is presented to the public, one with such impeccable style and breeding that onlookers are spellbound by its beauty and grace.
