Whittell Duesenberg at Gooding Pebble Beach Auction

One of Duesenberg Motors’ best customers was George Whittell Jr., a notorious San Francisco playboy who was heir to a fortune, ran with “questionable” women, raced his cars through city streets, and provided regular fodder for the tabloids. He was also an astute investor who sold $50 million in stock just before the market crashed in 1929, leaving him with plenty of money for airplanes, speedboats, and cars, including half a dozen Duesenberg Model Js.
