1920s Deusenberg

As cars became status symbols by the late 1920s, the Duesenberg was America’s premier automobile. Desired by Hollywood stars and the wealthy, the Duesenberg was a remarkable piece of craftsmanship that reached incredible speeds as a touring sedan with the most reliable engine available. Gangsters prized the two ton car for its speed, outfitting the autos with armored bodies and bulletproof glass. The car was so well made and so finely crafted that it lent its name to the superlative phrase, “It’s a Doozy!” – applied to the best of everything.
