The Duesenberg Model J was available on either a 142.5-inch or 153.5-inch wheelbase and was given coachwork by some of the finest coachbuilders of the time. LeBaron's contributions included the innovative Dual Cowl Phaeton with the trendsetting sweep panel design. About 18 LeBaron-designed chassis were sold. Duesenberg's in-house coachbuilder adapted the sweep panel design and sold it as the LeGrande Dual Cowl Phaeton and included a folding rear windshield, offering additional protection from the elements for the rear seat passengers.
This car was once owned by the prize-fighter and one-time World Champion, Max Baer. The car would later pass through at least 11 owners, including many well-known Duesenberg collectors. One interesting original features was headlights that turned with the front wheels. This idea was later used by Tucker and Citroen in addition to others.Also photographed at :
