@ Super8: The last Duesenberg, but wouldn't that make this one a one off?

Even Duesenberg is gone in 1940, a man called Jim Robert ask Duesenberg to create the last exclusive Duesenberg just like in the photo. It's using Model J chassis and complete with new streamlined body kits. Even it named model J, but it has almost identical performance and spec to Duesenberg Model SJ in 1930's. This car is offered for sale at $27,500 in 1949.
