Sadovich F&D SJ was created by maxkalba
There seems to be a debate as to whether the SJ Convertible Victoria by Fernandez & Darrin, driven by Edmond Sadovich in the 1933 Paris to Nice rally, is the same as J-542. Some experts such as Roe think they are two different cars but The Cofer Collection, which owns it, thinks it’s one in the same. The argument is the ‘rally’ car was brought back to F&D in 1935 to be modified to the new owner’s taste. Does anyone have further insight?

Maxcalba: I know virtually nothing definitive about Model J Duesenbergs but to my old eyes the cowl panel appears to be shorter on the alleged Sadowich vehicle with open fenders and it does not have cowl lights. The images of J-542 with skirted front fenders and flexible covered exhaust , vs. the one piece exhaust manifold on the Sadowich machine , appears to be distinctly different. Note to that the running board configuration on the two vehicles is quite different. Thanks for your interesting post. Jack Richards #1080 in HOT Missouri, USA.

Thank you for the response. Yes, either heavily modified or entirely different cars.
