'Front page' auto is a $550k star in Arizona

An anticipated highlight at RM Auction's Automobiles of Arizona sale, the 1932 Duesenberg Model J Tourster didn't disappoint when it auctioned at the January 21-22 event.

The majestic automobile glided past its higher estimate of $525,000, eventually bringing $550,000.

According to RM, the car was front-page news upon its debut in 1928, thanks to Duesenberg's reputation and the Model J's grand concept and design.

Duesenberg reportedly ordered enough components to build just 500 of the regal-looking Model Js over a period of six months, during which the highest build standards were maintained.

The first customer delivery came in May 1929 - barely five months before the notorious stock market crash on Black Tuesday.

Nevertheless, the Model J's status as a paragon of power, luxury, prosperity and success endured. This culminated with the Model J Tourster in the early-1930s.

Offered without reserve, it brought $506,000.
