Congratulations and a "tip of the hat" to Jay Leno and Randy Ema for the fantastic restoration of a car that would not normally get restored. It's not a particularly good looking Duesenberg, and I imagine that most would have removed the body and built something else. This car will now be preserved forever, barring a disaster of some sort.

West, I agree on all points. I was very impressed with the way that car came out. Btw, I was watching the episode on the HD channel last night where Randy & Jay drive the X back to the garage where it was found. You can see that cool A roadster that Randy bought in the corner covered with 50 years of stuff. Other than the Byrd estate, that garage may be at the top of the "barn find" list of cool.

Even the ugly ones must be preserved.This stands out like a goose egg in a coal bucket. Those of you who have a copy of Fred Roe's book should open it and take a look at J315.THAT is one horrid example of wasted effort but it is what someone wanted. It does not look like that now and I don't know what the status is.
The head in the foreground of one of the pictures,is that one of Jim Schneck's new ones?
Leno is to be commended for this restoration of a car that 60 years ago would have been parted out or scrapped altogether.

I entirely agree. Not all Model J's were Torpedo Phaetons, but they all represented exactly what their owners wanted.

And it's not THAT ugly. Well, not entirely.
