DUESENBERG MOTORS IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK. Over the years, many attempts have been made to recapture the magic of the Duesenberg name, yet the near-mythical style and engineering brilliance of the E. L. Cord days remained exlusive. Most of these attempts were half-baked concepts without the necessary funding to even reach production. But in the late 1970s, one company did manage to recapture some of that exlusive Duesenberg character. The company, Dusenberg Motors, was founded by Richard Braund, a restoration specialist in Elroy, Wisconsin. Mr Braund had vast experience in the classic car business and a great appreciation for the big pre-war classics, which sparked his idea for a proper revival of the Duesenberg name. While other attempts to revive the name resulted in gaudy neo-classics or poorly built fiberglass replica jokes, Duesenberg Motors' cars were exacting copies of the originals that rode on a bespoke chassis with Ford-derived suspension and running gear. But what really set the Duesenberg Motors vehicles apart from "replicars" was their exceptional build quality and amazing accuracy. Each body style was precisely measured using an original example as a template and each car utilized high-quality Lincoln engines and specially built frames. The grills, bumpers and other details were expensive castings and the bodies were hand-finished and assembled by a team of craftsmen working at the Elroy plant. These details meant the Duesenberg II was fabulously expensive. With all the grand looks of the original yet with easily serviced Ford running gear, these magnificent automobiles are genuine classics and real collector cars that are highly sought after. Most of the Duesenberg IIs are in museums, many owned by celebrities. Very rarely one comes up for sale. A total 0f 67 Duesenberg IIs were produced from 1977 to 2011. THERE WAS USUALLY A 36 MONTH WAIT, if you wanted to own a Duesenberg II. If you wanted one sooner, you could buy out someone's contract. Customers were paying up to $500,000 just to get one without the wait. Over 5,000 man hours and hand built craftmanship goes into every Duesenberg II. Very authentic, factory built recreation of one of the most Elegant cars ever built in America. From the personal collection of Greg Grams, the foremost authority on Duesenberg lls and owner of Volo Auto Museum. He was one of the original factory dealers for these cars back the early 1980s. Even priced around $200,0
