Among the distinguished offering of spectacular pre-war automobiles slated for this year’s sale is a striking example of one of the world’s most significant motorcars, a Pebble Beach award-winning 1929 Duesenberg Model J Berline, one of the first Duesenberg Model Js delivered when new, with Fred Buess, Homer Fitterling, Ed Weaver and Richard Burdick on its roster of former owners.

No less important is an extraordinary 1935 Delahaye 135M Competition Drophead Coupe, one of only four Delahayes built by Figoni in 1935 and the last known survivor. Certified by Club Delahaye of France, this singular automobile made its debut at the 1935 Paris Motor Show and has since been the recipient of a painstaking five-year research and restoration effort that has included many of the greatest French authorities on the marque.

All consignments can now be viewed in detail in the online catalogue at worldwideauctioneers.com

The Scottsdale Auction will again be staged at Singh Meadows in Tempe, Arizona, as a live event, with online and phone bidding options also available to accommodate all comfort levels. “We’re looking forward to starting the new year by welcoming our customers back to Arizona in person, to enjoy an expertly curated selection of world-class motor cars in a relaxed, spacious and genial setting,” said Rod Egan, Principal and Auctioneer.
