RealRides of WNY  -  1932 Duesenberg

Looking at this 1932 Deusenberg Model J Town Car certainly brings to mind the phrase go big or stay home. Designed by J. Gerald Kirchoff and built for the Countess Anna Ingraham, heiress to the clock fortune of the same name, this not-easy-to-parallel-park car had an MSRP of $25,000. Now, today that doesn’t sound like much, but if you figure in the inflation rate, the Countess Ingraham wrote out a check for a lofty $458,224.45 in 2019 dollars. That’s alotta clocks! This majestic car was photographed a couple of summers ago inside the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum in downtown Buffalo, where the car’s accompanying placard tells us it’s the most expensive Deusenberg ever built.
