The Blue J, a 1929 Duesenberg Model J Dual-Cowl Phaeton in its signature blue livery is part of the William A.C. Pettit III collection from Natural Bridge, Va.
The Model J still carries its original engine, chassis and LeBaron Dual-Cowl Phaeton coach work. It is expected to sell for $2 million to $2.75 million.
Gooding & Co. will be selling 11 other cars from the collection, including a 1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom l Derby Speedster that has had only two owners.
