Thank you for posting the link.

The 1930ies fisk Tire commercial video is very cool.

Does someone knows which car that Duesenberg CC in that commercial is?

If it would have rear hinged doors, different windshield and shorter hood, I would say J-386/2421 :-)
but it is apparently not

J-198 / 2221, a highly modified Murphy Disappearing Top Torpedo Convertible Coupe. The car survives, with the body restored back to more or less the original configuration.

Bob Roller replied the topic: J198
I saw it at Auburn some years ago with the body in what appeared to be the original boat tail configuration. There was another photo publishe years ago of what may have been this car with all the body modifications that had kissed a telephone pole while driven by a driver under the influence of liquid dumb ass.

Bob, that was a still shot from 1936's "She Had To Eat," I believe. I don't know the circumstances of the collision in the film.
