According to researchers, the original car may have been the only Duesenberg to be fitted with a front bumper on the rear. This detail has not been overlooked. The car underwent a four year restoration which was executed by Kevin and Jason Marsh of Utah. Every effort and many dollars were spent to assure concours quality attention to detail and correctness. Utilizing a combination of original and reproduction components, top Duesenberg experts have assisted in the recreation of this elegantly styled car. With the use of factory photos and a sister car, the body was faithfully recreated as originally produced, including the hand polished aluminum upper bodywork. Exacting details were considered in the windshield, door handles, window frames, chrome body trim, running boards and step plates.
