A majestic 1930 Duesenberg Model SJ Convertible Victoria, J272, formerly owned by noted band leader Paul Whiteman of “Rhapsody in Blue” fame, garnered top dollar at RM’s Michigan sale yesterday, selling for a strong $957,000 before a packed house.
One of just 16 examples bodied with convertible Victoria coachwork by Rollston, the stunning Duesenberg led a magnificent group of top-selling American classics at the single-day sale, held in conjunction with the famed Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s. In total, the three-and-a-half hour auction lifted the gavel on a total of 74 automobiles, generating more than $6.8 million in sales* with a solid 82 percent of all lots sold.
