Duesenberg Model J exterior

Automobiles from 1920 > Extra about cars in 1920

The Model J’s body was always built by outside coachbuilders, but often under the supervision of Duesenberg’s head of styling Gordon Buehrig. This resulted in a certain shared look to many bodies. The most prolific builder of Model J bodies was Murphy of Pasadena, but this particular 1931 car is one of eight with “Tourster” open-touring coachwork by the respected Pennsylvania company Derham.
