1931 Duesenberg Model J Tourster

It is known that eight Derham Toursters were built on the Duesenberg Model J chassis. The Model J is powered by a 265-horsepower, 6.9-liter inline-eight. The Derham coachwork was styled by Gordon Buehrig, who described it as his favorite Model J. It’s essentially a five-passenger touring car with rear suicide doors and a secondary roll-down windscreen for the rear-seat passengers.
