Randy_G created the topic: Duesenberg Production Numbers
I want to thank everyone that has visited my site and I hope you return after I add the next section on Duesenberg to it. That's why I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to find the production numbers for Duesenberg. Basically I want to know how many cars were built. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

[u:jng8ou0r]Duesenberg[/u:jng8ou0r], by Dennis Adler (2004) features a comprehensive list of all production numbers, body descriptions, and engine numbers in the Appendix on pages 273-6.

The body descriptions cite the coachbuilder and style, with only a few omissions. In a few of these, the author offers a (well) educated guess. E.G...2247, 2249, 2250, 2251 are all Willoughby Limousines and a Berline, so it is highly likely that 2248 was also a Willoughby Limousine.

A disclaimer notes that it was common Duesenberg practice to issue a new serial number for a factory rebuilt engine.

It is a gorgeous and informative book I highly recommend.
It's a steal at $35.
