1932 Duesenberg Model J Torpedo Convertible Coupe wins the Judges vote in the Pre-War Supercars Class at the inaugural Concours Virtual 

People’s Vote goes to 1904 Napier L 49

In a very competitive field that ranged from a 1904 Napier through to a trio of late 1930’s BMW 328 coupes, the stunning Duesenberg caught the attention of the experienced judges to go through as the Class contender for Best in Show.

The Duesenberg J-476 was one of five short wheelbase Torpedo Convertible Coupe bodies built by Murphy. Notable in its design is the Murphy hallmark disappearing convertible top and the bare aluminum top of the body.

In the People’s vote, the earlier cars in the class were favoured with the 1904 Napier pipping the 1907 Thomas Flyer to take top spot.

The full results are as follows:
