1935 Duesenberg SJ ‘Mormon Meteor’ Special

June, 2011 § Leave a comment

Most Duesenbergs were built to reach prestige and luxe, but this was a pure race car built to set the 24-Hour land speed record.  It did it in 1936 (when this car became the ” Mormon Meteor “), also set a record of running 148.641 mph average for 48 hour period.

A Duesenberg designer, Herbert Newport, was appointed to design this nice and aerodynamic body work.  Probably, this is the greatest Duesenberg race car, not ‘cos is the fastest and most powerful…  but ‘cos was the last of this great manufacturer from USA.
