The file name on the photo says, "J-268-2290"

Dunno if that's correct or not.

J268/2290 is apparently correct. At least it matches the description in the Registry.

According to Fred Roe's book, this was the only Duesenberg ever imported into Japan, where the first owner had this body built. It came back to the US after WWII where a much nicer looking convertible coupe body was built for it. There is a picture in Roe's book, but I haven't personally seen any other photos of it.
