1930 Duesenberg

Last updated on September 5, 2021

Today’s car is the second car in the Frankel Collection. It is a 1930 Duesenberg J Murphy Convertible Sedan.  Featuring a original Murphy coachwork.  This is a one off and on of the last of Model J-190.  It is powered by 7L (420 cu in) DOHC straight 8 rated at 260 HP with a 3 speed Transmission.  This was the Center piece of the Frankel’s car collection and a survivor original car.  I think a couple of fenders were repainted, but that is it.  They bought it in 1954 for $553.00.  Al drove it to work at Hughs Aircraft.  And from what I understand it sold for just under $1 million dollars.  Another great and rare car. There are 3 more cars in this collection see you tomorrow for car number 3.

Thanks for riding along. Frank
