A friend told me recently that you can tell SWB and LWB Duesenbergs apart at first glance simply by looking at the running boards--the chrome strips on SWB cars are split into two groups, those on LWB cars into three.

It seems to check out on the photos I've looked at, with a few exceptions--is there any documented truth to this?

No. Early wood boards do not have a mid strip. Randy

At the risk of sounding like a smart ass, park them side by side. The LWB car will be longer.

One of our original Duesenbergs has no running boards, and one has the strips full length of the running board. One has no strips at all. The subject has never come up in my head cause I can normally tell the difference by looking at the car.
