The year was 1933, four years after the Wall Street disaster of 1929, yet Duesenberg seemed not to notice. That year it produced one of its most elegant automobiles-the J Victoria. With a wheelbase nearly thirteen feet long, this massive J model chassis carried a magnificent body with swooping pontoon fenders designed by Fernandez and Darrin. The car was later named after its famous owner and became ever after-the "Garbo" Duesenberg. Only one other was made.

This older issue 1:24 scale die cast is beautiful enough in its own right to make it a standout. Painted in gorgeous, glittering, metallic blue, offset by black fenders and dripping with chromed parts galore, this is one of the most beautiful of the '30s era images that FM has done. Look under the hood and you'll find just about the nicest rendition of the famous "Duesey" Green, double overhead cam, straight-eight ever put to scale. You won't even miss the lack of spark plug wires. There are "soft-feel" seats, a carpeted floor, and a Landau top over the rear seats. A large trunk and two spare tires out back set this beauty off as a true product of the Golden Age of automotive engineering.

Only the rich and famous could afford the kind of luxury Duesenberg specialized in. If you're an admirer of cars of this ilk, however, you certainly cannot afford to pass up this finely crafted image. It represents the kind of automobile the likes of which we won't see again. The issue price is $135. (05/04/2000)
