Might be J-284 but I'm just guessing.

here's a link to a good gallery of Duesenberg photos that I find helpful for identifying individual cars, but I've found that its not 100% accurate compared to expert sources.

J284 as pictured in the gallery does not have the cowl mounted spotlites, and has chrome spare tire covers. Could it be the same car with changes over time? <!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: -->

Also J395 appeared different last year than in the above pic. DIfferent tires, missing the Pilot Rays, front bumper bracing a different color. Edit: Plus J395 currently does not have the wood slats on the back and it has a trunk. It is reported that J395 recieved the trunk at the time of the restoration when it was converted from cream to red and black. Is it indeed the same car? <!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: -->

I now feel pretty certain its J401. Here is a link to a photo of it in a different color. Chris Summers' registry says its now red so that fits also notice the passenger side spotlight in the photo
