In 1933, Duesenberg raised the standard of automotive design with a car so spectacular that it commanded the unheard of price of $20,000. The Arlington Torpedo Sedan was designed by legendary stylist, Gordon Mille Buehring. It was placed atop a Supercharged SJ chassis by Rollston, INC. of New York. The vehicle was built for a display at the Century of Progress Exposition, better known as the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933-34.
This car received more attention to chassis fit and finish than any other Duesenberg ever constructed. When acquired by the current owners in 1978, Mr. Buehring and former Duesenberg president Harold Ames were both consulted on, to ensure an accurate restoration. The car emerged from the shop at San Sylmar exactly as it appeared the day it left the factory for the World’s Fair.
This spectacular example of wheeled sculpture usually resides in the Grand Salon of the Nethercutt Collection in Slymar, California.
