Fred and Augie Duesenberg were a pair of driven, determined, nomadic masterminds. And to them, the automotive world will forever owe a great debt of gratitude. It took many years, and their achievements were hardly overnight successes, but eventually the brother created the ultimate in automotive engineering: the fabulous Duesenberg. Few were made, and only a relative handful remain. The Duesenbergs of the 1920s and ’30s were so remarkable that they had little competition. With the help of E.I.Cord’s fearless leadership and financial backing, the brilliant coachwork of the world’s greatest bodybuilders, and Fred Duesenberg’s mechanical genius, no two Duesenbergs were outfitted the same, and none have ever been truly rivaled. In Duesenberg, Dennis Adler has compiled the ultimate written and pictorial history of the car that was corrected billed as “The World’s Finest Motor Car.”
Dennis Adler is the editor in chief of Car Collector magazine and the author of more than twenty books on automotive history and vintage firearms. He has written award-winning books on Packard, Chrysler, and Mercedes-Benz.
