Matt,
I THINK Fred Roe's book lists J581 as being nearly destroyed in a fire and perhaps the engine is now in another car.As I remember,it was a Rollston CS with some Cadillac styling.Maybe Chris or someone can clarify this.

Robbie, the car has for the last few years been owned by a collector who kept it at the Candy Store in California.

Engine J-581 went into the Dietrich Convertible Berline originally powered by J-434. The car still exists in Chicago, and is presently undergoing restoration.

Can Randy or someone else please clear up what chassis the LeBaron J-292 has presently, and whether the blower is original? I did some digging on that car last year and couldn't clear up either point. Most people who were around when it was being restored aren't around any longer.

Matt,
On page 205 of Roe's book is a picture of this car and it was listed as heavily damaged in a fire and the engine and other parts were used in
other cars.

The Blower on J292 as shown in the BJ pictures is the same one that was on it in the 1960s and looks to match the pictures Robbie posted.

Hello,

the BJ announcement tell not much facts about the chassis, only that the car has the VIN 2158, but what does that mean in this "case"?

- the "original" and at a time shortened chassis, is now "repaired" (relonged) and mounted? or

- is it (as mentioned) chassis No 2606? or

- is it maybe a (VIN numbered) repro-frame/chassis (maybe with some original numbered parts added)? :rolleyes:


And why does BJ always call that car a DEUSENBERG in the car-discribing text?


Cheers

Matt

Matt,
It means Vehicle Identification Number or Wagen Identitat Nummer.
The bad spelling on the name "Duesenberg"may be due to a failing
educational system or plain LAZY people--Faul Leute,Ja!
