Luxurious Model of The Duesenberg SJ Twenty Grand.
This unique Duesenberg model measures an impressive 23cm long and 7.5cm wide which makes this a big model! plus original packaging!
A Duesenberg marketing slogan was, "The only car that could pass a Duesenberg was another Duesenberg—and that was with the first owner's consent.
Reinforcing this claim was the powerful 320 hp (239 kW) supercharged "SJ" model Developed on the 142.5 in (362 cm) wheelbase by Fred Duesenberg and introduced in May 1932.[7]. It reputed to be capable of 104 miles per hour (167 km/h) in second gear and have a top speed of 135–140 mph (217–225 km/h) in third. Zero-to-60 mph (97 km/h) times of around eight seconds and 0–100 mph (0–161 km/h) in 17 seconds were reported for the SJ in spite of the unsynchronized transmissions, at a time when even the best cars of the era were not likely to reach 100 mph (160 km/h). Duesenbergs generally weighed around two and a half tons; up to three tons was not unusual, considering the wide array of custom coachwork available.
The SJ's supercharger was located beside the engine; the vertical driving shaft necessitated a redesigned exhaust manifold arrangement; originally this took the form of a one-piece eight into one Monel manifold that re-routed the exhaust away from the engine, outside the engine compartment and through a single hole in the right front fender. The eight port manifold was found to be prone to cracking and was quickly superseded by a second manifold arrangement that routed four branches through the right side panel of the hood and right front fender. At least one supercharged car retains its original eight port manifold while most can be recognized by the four exposed exhaust pipes encased within bright flexible metal conduit tubes, a design which Cord registered as a trademark and used in his supercharged Cords and Auburns.[citation needed] The flamboyant external exhaust pipes were offered both as an option on new normally aspirated Model Js and retrofit to earlier Model Js.

  • Het is een leuk klokje maar te duur. Geen certevicaat van echtheid. Het is geen goud zoals omschreven. Ik kan geen identicatie vinden.
    Groet,
    Jan Dekker.

    J’ai reçu cette voiture très bien emballé, le capot ainsi que la calandre n’était pas ajusté, les portes ont un millimètre de jeu. C’est un beau modèle, évidemment fait avec plus de 172 éléments, ❤️
