When ever a drive any of my cars to someone's house I always park in the grass for the leak reason. As they say "If it doesn't leak it doesn't have oil in it."

the car from the pictures from Chateau Loučeň Concours d´Elegance is definitely not J-219.
See more pictures below. It is two-tone as mentioned above and it has the step on the left rear fender and on the right fender it doesn´t.
Does anyone know if the numbers J-146/2139 are correct?
thanks
Jan

It has been reported that in 1964, Homer Fitterling purchased the original Derham Sedan body from J-146 / 2139, and somebody fitted a Murphy convertible coupe body of unknown origin to the chassis.

Duesenberg's are supposed to leak oil. For one they have a constant loss chassis oiling system, also they do not use seals in the engine. There are just screw threads on any protruding shafts in an attempt to twist most of the oil back into the engine. Dripping oil probably wasn't a big deal in the gravel road era that they were built.
