Duesenberg Model J

Technical info about Model J can be found in related UCP page Duesenberg J Franay Convertible Sedan

Duesenberg Model J #1

This is 1935 model, possibly fitted with factory bodywork. Maybe someone can confirm or correct me on this.

While I'm not a huge fan of the coachwork on this particular example, at the time 260hp was a lot of power for a car. Now the car that cost equivalent to a million dollars was the SSJ, which had 400 horsepower and exquisite coachwork! Imagine a seventy five year old car keeping up with a new M6 on a straight.

With due respect, their has always been a cloud of exaggeration around the actual power figures of the SJ/SSJ. I can't recall having seen official reports that one could exceed 200 kph. (still a quite respectable speed ) but less than could be expected. A good SSJ was closer to 325 bhp, vs 265 bhp for the SJ.
And I don't think you would have to worry about being overtaken by an SSJ

Well still, a million dollars can pretty much shot you into the future...if we progress the same rate in like 60 years the average man drives a Zonda? If the environmental hippies don't have at us i guess

Really? A hop from an ox cart into Duesenberg is much more impressive than a hop from Duesenberg into any modern car, isn't it? The progress of automobile has slowed down quite a bit in the past 70 years.

Duesenberg's were quite amazing cars at the time, especially if you ever visit the Auburn/Cord/Dusenburg museum in Auburn, IN, USA. Its quite interesting and full of some of the rarest of the 3 marquees. If I remember correctly some of these cars cost more than $20,000 in their day and during the depression that was quite a pretty penny.

This is what $18-$20,000 bought you in those days. A mansion in those days would have most likely been $20-30,000, which means that a million would be a ridiculously large amount of money.

What we mean is that 30k in those times was equivilent to about a million dollars today.

Sixty years from now when everyday 911s powered by hydrogen or ethenol or whatever are pushing out 1,000hp we're going to look back at the Veyron and laugh. But we shouldn't because the Veyron is a pretty impressive car to me.
