Duesenberg History

1933 Duesenberg Model J

Chassis number : 2503

Share on:

Film star Greta Garbo owned this long wheelbase cabriolet with chassis number 2503 and engine J-481, built by famed Paris coachwork partnership of Fernandez & Darrin. Only four bodies were built by Fernandez & Darrin on Duesenberg chassis. This stellar example of their work was first exhibited at the 1932 Paris Auto Salon. It carries the French safety bumpers and extended trunk with rear mounted spare tires.

Most of the 452 Model Js were sold as a bare chassis to be fitted with a body by coachbuilders, most often in the United States. However four Duesenberg J chassis were bodied by the Parisian Carrosserie Fernandez et Darrin. This example carries the original Romo French safety bumpers required at the time and an extended rear end with an outside trunk and two rear-mounted spare wheels.
