Dear members,
I need your help. I am a digital modeler with a passion for classic cars. I have modeled several 3D cars before and now I want to start a Duesenberg. In order to do that I need a reference drawing or a blueprint. What I am asking now is: Do you have such a blueprint?
The model or coachwork doesn't matter, any model is fine. If you have a print or drawing in digital form, you could send it via email. Just post here if you have got anything, and I'll give my address. If you have something on paper, its a bit difficult. I live in Germany, so sending a copy to me is quite expensive. I would pay the postage and the price for copying if necessary. There are two ways to do that: I could transfer the money to your bank account or I could send the money via snail mail to you.

By the way, I was looking for some prints at other places too. I contacted Randy Ema, but he couldn't help me. He doesn't have any body drawings or prints. Only the coach builders had them. And I know that the ACD museum sells reproductions of prints, but there is no Duesenberg among them (only a chassis)

I would be especially interested in the print of the Maharajah Duesenberg by Gurney Nutting. I found the top and side view for it, maybe someone does have the front and back view. However, any other Duesy is fine too.
Thank you for your reading this long post.

Best regards from Germany

Greg Riley replied the topic: Judkins Coupe
I have scans of two original Gordon Buehrig drawings that were done of two differint versions of a Judkins Coupe. One was actually built, and the other apparently was not. These are not blueprints and are somewhat abstract, but are supposedly scale drawings. However, they are not dimensioned. Would this be helpful? These are ultra high-resolution tiff files that were done by a University. I doubt if they can be e-mailed, but could be posted to a ftp site.

I think one of them was previoulsy posted in low resolution to the Yount thread in the photo gallery of this site.

Yes, I think they are very useful! Post them please. The dimensions are not really necessary right now, I am using them only a reference. I think there are some free Internet space providers, here are some links. Just upload them there and post the link to the uploaded files/follow the instructions on the sites.

Try these:

http://www.fupload.com
http://www.megaupload.com
http://www.yousendit.com/

Does it have all four views, like front, back, side and top? Or only the side, as shown in the Frank Yount thread? Anyway, would be great to have them.

Thank you for your help!

Greg Riley replied the topic: Judkins Coupe
Here is a low resolution version of one of the drawings. I've been trying to purchase the originals for several years, but Yount's grandaughter won't sell or donate them although they are very poorly stored.

Please give me some time locate the CD I have the high resolution version stored on. I should be able to find them later today.

This version shows the car with blind quarter windows. Apparently two of these were built, and one still exists. I believe it is currently on loan to the Gilmore Museum. I don't believe that the car with quarter windows was ever built. I sure Randy or others on the forum would know.

Judkins built two Victoria Coupes in addition to the red Coupe, J-137. However none of the books I've ever read mention a quarter-window two-passenger Coupe having been built.

Great drawing--it was the background on my computer for a while. :D

Greg Riley replied the topic: I'll post the other one!
I'll find the disks today and post the drawing of the car that was never built!

I don't know if you can see Buehrig's name and date on the posting. I was told (but never verified) that the Yount drawings were the first he did for Duesenberg. It would be interesting to know if it were true. The date is October 28, 1929.

It was also reported that Yount took delivery of his L-29 the very day the car was presented at the NY Auto Show. Of course the same article said, "The Cord can turn a square corner at fifty miles per hour!"
