Hello,

does someone can tell me how many of La Grande (DC) Pheatons were built with that V-shaped split-window windshield?

http://www.duesey186.com/Datasheets/Mod ... rm2559.htm

I know that one car is displayed @ the louwman museum in the netherlands. It is labeled as a 1935 supercharged Model (S)J.
I don't know the engine or chassis number. Is that (maybe?) car J-532/2559 from the link above?
http://www.louwmanmuseum.nl/asp/appmain ... ollsq=5362

It looks like that J-532 (as it appears on the first photo) is not supercharged but is/was equiped/customized with four single (sidedraft?) carburetor. The round metal-plates on the leftside of the hood look like the intake-airfilter covers.

Can someone tell more about model J engines which were customized/tuned with (four) single carburetor configurations. What carburetors were used?

I know about one car which has had four Solex (sidedraft) carbs mounted, but I think it is also possible that carbs like SU (Bentley) could be possible options for the J-engine.

Are there cars equiped with such a carb. configuration today, or are they all rebuilt to the "original" configurations?

The V windshield was added by Rollston to the car at the Louwman Museum. It is J532/2559

Hello Randy,

is the later added supercharger an "original" factory made one or a later made "replica"?

Am I right with my suggestion that J-532 was at a time (in the past) equiped/customised with a set of (four?) single carburetors?
