I found this pic on the internet, what a nice looking car. :DIt is a LWB Duesenberg J Murphy CC, photographed at the ACD Museum.

Can anyone provide any info on it please?
Thanks, Joel

It is J-286/2471, donated to the museum by Carmine & Lucille Zeccardi of New Jersey.

The chassis originally carried a Judkins Limousine body. The current body, which is from car J-377/2395, was installed by the late Rick Carroll during restoration in the late 1980s. J-377's engine and chassis, in turn, still exist with a replica LaGrande Phaeton body.

Thanks Chris!

Is that a disappearing top?

Almost all of the Murphy convertible coupes had disappearing tops.
