Bob Roller replied the topic: European bodied Duesenbergs
How many were sold in Europe and how many are still extant? I have heard the WW2 took quite a toll on them. I would think that the ones that were in use in Paris might have survived because the French,unlike the the Brits ran up the white flag rather than see Paris bombed like London and Coventry.

Hello Bob,

I think it as bit tricky to figure that out; according to the Adler-book a number of 39 (maybe 42?) Chassis had been equiped by european choachbuilding companies.

But not all of these european bodied cars were sold/remained in Europe.

E.G.: J-481/2503 was purchased by Greta Garbo in the US or J-585, that car was ordered by an Indian maharaja.

I don't have a clue how many US-bodied J's were purchased by european costumers.


Cheers

Matt

Matt,

The Society of Automotive Historians publication Automotive History Review concentrated on European Duesenbergs some years back, both those bodied there & US constructed cars shipped there. At one time, you could order back issues. http://autohistory.org/

The Elbert book has a chapter on European Dueseys. While it doesn't provide exact statistics, it is interesting to read.
