In the mid-1930s, at the worst of the Great Depression a Duesenberg chassis was $8500 (almost $150,000 in today’s dollar). The number of buyers was quickly dried up, as the cars weren’t modern disposable junk, they lasted for ever, and the desire to replace a car every year hadn’t yet been invented by Harley Earl’s design studio.

In Pasadena, the Walter M. Murphy company, builder of more Model J coachwork than any other, liquidated in 1932. Its equipment and some of its most skilled craftsmen coalesced into a new company, Bohman and Schwartz.

One of the company’s first commissions was a modern Town Cabriolet body on a 1935 Model J chassis for candy heiress Ethel Mars. Designer J. Herbert Newport
