Franklin Mint gave us quite a lineup of prewar Duesenbergs including Raffi's phantom Coupe Simone. The build quality and parts count increased over time evolving along with their other images. This early 1933 Duesenberg J Victoria model sports a spectacular blue finish giving it a nice "2 foot" presence. It suffers from dog leg hinging, a 2 dimensional applique dash and molded in triple wipers. Despite those shortcomings, it still looks great with all of its stablemates. It is still truly a "Doozy".

Rich, great photo's. I have never been a fan of Pre-40's automobiles.  Not that I do not have a few, but not until 1940 did we start to see some totally different designs then just these big boats. Out of my 1000 diecast cars that I have, I would say that maybe 50 of them are from this era.

I for one love my small collection of Duesenbergs. My latest acquisition is the 1/43 1935 LWB SJ Town Car by Boham & Schwartz commissioned by Ethel Mars of the Mars candy company made by Matrix.

a exceptional beautiful model.

Have them all, love them all. My collection is the history of the automobile and no history of the American automobile is complete without a variety of Duesenbergs.
