A unique Duesenberg reprised its early role as Concours winner by taking the top prize at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
This year, 220 cars from 19 countries and 33 states pulled onto the competition field of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The car named Best of Show was the 1932 Duesenberg J Figoni Sports Torpedo of Lee R. Anderson Sr.
“This rare Duesenberg marries American might with European style,” said Concours Chairman Sandra Button. “It did well in some early rallies and concours. Then, its history took a turn, with chassis separated from body. The story of its resurrection is one of pure passion.”
An American car last won Best of Show in 2013, when a 1934 Packard Twelve took the top spot. Duesenberg has long been the winningest American marque at Pebble Beach, with six prior wins; this win brings its total to seven.
This year’s Pebble Beach Concours also raised more than $2.67 million for charity, bringing the event’s total charitable donations to over $35 million to date. Through the Pebble Beach Company Foundation, the primary charitable partner of the Concours, these funds will benefit more than 95 local charities, impacting the lives of more than 10,000 children annually in Monterey County.

Rick N., Zora, and Elfi at the 1980 National meet in San Mateo, CA
As a long-time member of NCRS (1978), I’ve met many interesting folks along the way that still brings a smile to my face today. Obviously, Corvettes provide the common denominator, but it’s the people and the friendships built along the way that make this hobby so enjoyable. In 1980, the Northern CA Chapter of the NCRS held a National meet in San Mateo, CA and I was fortunate enough to have Zora Duntov and his wife, Elfi, as our special guests for the event. The four-day meet ended on a Sunday, culminating with a drive from the host hotel up the peninsula to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. The caravan was led by Zora and his wife in a ’54 Vette, with 30 other Vettes following behind. Even in the Summer, coastal weather can be quite chilly, and the Duntov’s discovered that the meager heater of early model Corvette could not keep them warm. It was at the first planned stop that an enclosed car was more to their liking, and they asked if another Corvette was available for them to drive. I was approached by Noland Adams and asked if we could swap rides…….. How could a request of this magnitude be turned down? Absolutely!!! Before proceeding, I posed for a picture with Mr. Duntov in front of my ’66 Coupe, with Mrs. Duntov in the background reloading her camera. Upon reaching the destination, Zora thanked me for letting him drive my car, and noted that the steering felt very loose. He asked for a screwdriver and wrench and no less than five sets were immediately produced. We popped the hood, and with a few adjustments on the steering gear box, Zora eliminated the play in the steering column. The day could not have ending on a higher note, but more importantly, the memories from this encounter with the Father of the Corvette will live on for a lifetime!
