Mike,
I have a friend who has an 8-100 two door Brougham with artillery wheels and it has had some interior work done and it looks good.Did these cars use a carpet or did they have rubber floor mats when they were new?

Bob,

They originally had a rubber mat up front, carpeting in the rear.

"Tub" was a common term used by Street Rodder's in the 70's usually referring to Touring or Phaeton built by Ford. I've also heard it used in place of some thing like "Basket Case".

The more lengthy original article which is well written doesn't include the "tub" phrase. The original also has some nice photos of the car. Link below.

Mark McCourt wrote the original article (and deserves credit for good work), with most of the historical info supplied by your friendly local Can-Am Duesenberg historian.

The car looks now as it did originally and nothing like the picture in Elbert, for which the world can be grateful.
