Thanks, Chris!

I am curious though,

Why is the car so different in the original post than in the auction in '08?

Was it restored again after the pics in the original post were taken? <!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: -->

Here is J395 back in 2002. No Pilot Rays back then either.



Hello,

I have a little additional information about J-395, for the files <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

During the time the car was part of the Imperial Palace Collection in Las Vegas. It was shipped to Germany for some few months in 1995/1996. The car was, together with another four I.P. Collection Model J Dueseys, displayed at the "Auto & Technik MUSEUM SINSHEIM" http://sinsheim.technik-museum.de/ That museum is one of the best european museum for technical issues.
Beside a huge car-collection there is a vast amount of tanks, war and civil aircrafts (e.G. Concorde, Russian "Concorde" TU144, Russian "Space Shuttle" Buran a.s.o.) and technical items of any kind.

could anyone identify this car?
I would say it must be one of the earlier cars (no hood ornament, the radiator shell without shutters..)
