1932 Duesenberg II Royalton Dual cowl Phaeton

This beautiful 1932 / 1983 Duesenberg II is one of just a handful factory produced cars that were expertly crafted by Elite Heritage / Duesenberg Motors in Elroy , WI. Newprice 30 years ago approached $200 k then and they sold out instantly , a true testament to the quality of the build. All hardware like the grille and windshields etc is cast in Bronze and then chromed. Drivetrain is a 460 cu V8 bigblock Ford coupled to a auto trans and the car has powersteering and brakes with discbrakes in the front. Heat and AC were standard. She sits on correct 19" true wirewheels complimented by widewall tires. This particular car is loaded with options like sidecurtains ,grilleguard , floor shift control , custom burlwood dash that hides the modern controls , new leather interior , fresh cloth softtop and even the expensive pilot ray foglights that actually turn with the direction of the wheels ! With the market moving up and up and the original models bringing several million dollars now , the price I'm asking is just about 10 % of the price you'll have to pay for an original , whereas this Duesenberg II will be much easier to drive and maintain without having to have any second thoughts about merging into modern day traffic. I sold this beauty about 7 years ago to a friend in Europe , where it was imported into the UK. Just traded her back and imported her , and she's still a looker !
