Our thanks to Jean-Eric Raoul for these pictures!

Here are three small pictures of the Duesenberg that I've driven in Switzerland last november.

Chassis : 2227 ; engine : J 135.

The car has been rebodied, but I'm not able to say when and who made the job. Thanks to another ACD member, I know that it was sold new as a
short chassis Derham sedan. And the chassis has probably been shortened, to wear this boat-tail speedster body, on an extra short wheelbase.

This car is now the property of the Charles G. Renaud Foundation, a truly magnificent private collection near Neuchatel, in Switzerland, with more than 120 cars displayed, including a Cord 812. But if you're not exclusively devoted to ACD cars, you'll probably enjoy AC Cobra, six pre-1931 Bentley, eight Bugatti, one Delage D8, six Ferrari, one Hispano-Suiza, one Isotta Fraschini roadster Castagna, one Marmon V16, one Maybach Zeppelin, two 1930's Packard, four pre-war Rolls-Royce, one Voisin? and many other jewels.

Hi,

these picture of J-135 were taken at the Imperial Palace Hotel in 1996. The frame number at the display was 2328





This car was my absolute favorite there. At that time there were round about 20 Model J Duesies on display. It was a fun-place to be.
