A total of twelve right hand drive Duesenberg Model J chassis were produced, this being the first of the run. The body was built by Barker and Company of England, one of Great Britian's premier coach builders of the era. This is the only Duesenberg that carried a British built body. It was exhibited at the 1929 Olympia Motor Show in London. The top over the chauffeur's compartment can be completely concealed with the soft fabric rolled back. This beautiful Duesenberg has been maintained in largely original condition.

The Duesenberg Model J engine is a modified Lycoming straight eight, featuring dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. With a displacement of 420 cubic inches, the engine was advertised to produce 265 horsepower. The Model J chassis alone cost $8,500.
