Duesenberg J Bohman & Schwartz 1937
This imposing Duesenberg limousine was the penultimate chassis made by the firm and their largest car ever built. It was known as the ‘Throne Car’ and built for controversial preacher “Father Devine” having been commissioned by one of his disciples and initially registered in the name of John the Baptist! (Devine’s is a story well worth Googling!). The car survives in excellent condition and the model matches photographs of it very well. The deep green paintwork is excellent and the roof has a satin finish to represent the vinyl top on the real car. This was originally a landaulet so that the owner could be seen by his disciples but modified to a fixed roof in the late 1940s. There’s plenty of fine detailing inside and out including the very luxurious rear seats from which the car took its name.
"The Throne Car".
Very well finished resincast models. Production usually limited to relatively low numbers and many unusual subjects are offered. Plated parts are usually delicately made and there is plenty of etch when needed. Made in China.
