1932 Duesenberg II Dual Cowl Phaeton

1932 Duesenberg II Dual Cowl Phaeton

TRUE BARNFIND !!! Here we have what has to be one of the still missing Duesenberg II dual cowl phaeton bodies , built by Elite Heritage Motors in Wisconsin.

All but 2 have been accounted for , and I was able to purchase this one together with the other missing one. They were sitting for over 25 years in a barn in upstate N.Y. together with another Duesie II , one of the 5 built Murphy roadsters and a SSJ shortwheel base bodied roadster. I had been chasing these cars for 23 years , ever since I spoke to the - now passed - father of the sons I now was finally able to purchase all those cars from ! Talk about patience..Although there's no supporting paperwork other than a bill of sale , there were wheels in the car with the Heritage logo on it , and one can clearly see the body is identical to the othere built, and the distinctive Duesenberg grille is something one cannot easily reproduce. Given the fact that these 2 Dual cowls were sitting together with the Murphy Roadster , the SSJ and plenty other interesting cars for such a long time , it is my professional opinion that it is safe to assume there ARE the two DB II bodies that were unaccounted for untill now. An attempt was made to put these 2 cars together ( the other one I'm keeping for now ) and this car is sitting on what appears to be a Chevrolet truck frame. What you see is what you get ; a rare chance to put together one of these great 30's era's cars. Duesenberg II's are fetching strong money currently , and the original cars are - as they always were - unattainable for a " regular guy " since they are now several million dollars. Please realize the potential of what this car can bring when finished. A great project with a big reward in the end ! Drivingwise and investmentwise ! Please CALL me for more info , as I'm on the road most of the time chasing classic cars , thanks ! Car to be sold on a bill of sale only.
