1935 Duesenberg Model JN

The Duesenberg JN Models were produced in limited numbers with only ten examples created with each given bodies by Rollston and designed by Herb Newport. In comparison to the standard Model J vehicles, the JN models were given redesigned fender lines and 17-inch wheels. The tool and battery box were slightly redesigned to allow the doors to open and close over the fame. They had wider bodies that were dropped over the frame rails giving a lower profile. Just four of the ten were given convertible bodystyles with the first example going to the Hollywood legend, Clark Gable.
