1930 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupe The Murphy Convertible Coupe is the most desirable of all Duesenberg body styles

The two magnificent Model Js will return to the Indiana manufacturing facility where they were produced in 1929 and 1930.

First up is a 1930 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupe, which originates from the Collection of Ross McEachran.

Sporting the Murphy Convertible Coupe, the most desirable Duesenberg body style, this example was built for a member of the renowned du Pont family.

The late John du Pont was one of the world's foremost stamp collectors, as well as a convicted murderer known for his bizarre eccentricities.

Following will be a 1929 Model J Sport Sedan, which is one of only two built and has sported the original engine, chassis and body from new.

With long-term ownerships by noted Duesenberg enthusiasts, this Sport Sedan is considered one of the most beautiful of all closed Duesenbergs.

In March, an outstanding example of the 1935 Model SJ sold as top lot in RM Auctions' Amelia Island sale.
