-Original chassis, engine and body

-One of only 36 factory-supercharged cars

-Fully documented ownership history

-High quality restoration of a very original car

-Original New York car

Like very few other automobiles of the 1930’s, Duesenberg is redolent of wealth and power. Commissioned by E. L. Cord and built by Fred and August Duesenberg in 1927, the new 265 hp Duesenberg chassis, which saw the light of day in 1929, was simply the most powerful passenger car the world had ever seen. In 1931, a supercharger option was added to the lineup, boosting power to 320 hp, an almost-inconceivable figure at the time. With a colossal chassis-only price of $9,500, a mere 36 cars were factory-supercharged. SJ514/2543 is one of these incredibly rare factory-supercharged cars, and is still fitted with its original engine and long distance sports-touring berline body by Rollston, the most prominent East Coast coachbuilder. This is a unique opportunity to acquire one of the rarest, most powerful and luxurious American automobiles of the 1930s, in beautiful restored condition.
