The Duesenberg brothers parlayed their automobile racing successes into the creation of passenger cars, beginning with what are now termed the Model 'A' cars from 1916 to 1926.

During this period fewer than 300 cars were produced, all carrying the 'Straight Eight' motor which had garnered the firm four Indianapolis 500 Victories during this period.

The Duesenberg Model X, an upgrade to the previously produced Model A, was the last series of Duesenbergs to be designed by Fred Duesenberg. The Duesenberg Company had intended to mass produce the X, but production was cut short when the company was acquired by E.L. Cord in 1927.

This car was originally owned by Arnold Kirkeby, an owner of Chicago hotels and a one time Indianapolis 500 racing car sponsor. It is one of the only four Model 'X' cars remaining (all of different body types) and is considered 'by far the most exotic.' Original paint and leather were discovered on the chassis and were repeated in this striking color scheme.

This car was displayed at the November 1927 New York Auto Show. Although 13 bodies were planned for the new Duesenberg 'X' chassis, just a few were actually built. Each had a different body configuration - four-door salon, Town Car, Limousine, and this one and only 'X' is the most exotic.
