Coachbuilder LeBaron originated the “Sweep Panel” styling used on early Duesenberg Model Js, building roughly 18 examples with dual-cowl phaeton bodies between 1928 and 1930. Of these, RM Sotheby’s states that just one, a 1930 Duesenberg Model J with chassis number 2336, was built atop a 153.5-inch long-wheelbase chassis. Next month, this car — recently restored by the now-retired Fran Roxas — heads to auction at the company’s Amelia Island sale.
