The Duesenberg Motors Company was founded in 1913 by two German-born American brothers in Minnesota. They specialized in race cars and ultra-luxery cars — when a Ford Model A Town Car cost just $1,200, a Duesenberg might cost $15,000 (over $270,000 today). These cars were not for the average Depression era family! Dennis Glaasker has successfully captured the luxury and craftsmanship of these amazing cars with another stellar LEGO vehicle, full of custom chrome details and working features.
The car has a fully detailed engine, built in green to contrast beautifully with the car’s red finish.
All the doors open, and (with a bit of brick-built sleight of hand) the canvas top folds down. Note the second windscreen in front of the rear passenger seats.
