Gary Cooper Duesenberg SSJ at Gooding Pebble Beach
Gary Cooper’s 1935 Duesenberg “SSJ,” chassis number 2594 with engine J-563, features a 400-horsepower supercharged straight-eight engine placed in an abbreviated Duesenberg chassis with roadster bodywork. It will be offered this coming August at the Gooding & Co. sale.
J-563 should easily set an auction record for a pre-war American car. It could set an auction record for any American car, eclipsing Carroll Shelby’s first Cobra, which sold in 2016 for $13.75 million.
