Duesenberg SJ Dual Cowl Phaeton – Picture Special

Lego Duesenberg SJ Dual Cowl Phaeton

This astonishing creation comes from one of our very favourite builders, TLCB Master MOCer and published author Dennis Glaasker aka BricksonWheels. It’s a 1935 Duesenberg SJ Dual Cowl Phaeton, one of the most expensive and luxurious cars ever made.

With a supercharged 6.8litre straight-eight engine producing 320bhp (a huge figure for 1935) the SJ Phaeton cost around thirty times that of a regular car, and today commands a price well into the millions. Driven by movie stars and the social elite, just 36 Duesenberg SJs were made before the Great Depression and the Second World War put an end to the production of super-luxurious vehicles.

Dennis Glaasker’s incredible Lego recreation of the 1935 SJ Duel Cowl Phaeton is a near-prefect replica of the original car, and contains over 5,000 pieces, many of which have been professionally chromed, and 5,200 pieces in both open and closed roof configurations.
