Duesenberg Engine Inquiry

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain the history of the Duesenberg engines from around 1925 through the end of production?

I know they used Lycoming Straight 8's, some normally aspirated, some supercharged.

Is there a good Duesenberg history book out there?

I got a copy of The Duesenberg: The Story of America's Premier Car by Louis William Steinwedel and J. Herbert Newport the week I graduated from high school(the book had just come out recently). 165 pages, focuses a lot on the coachwork, since the latter author designed a number of bodies for Duesenbergs, like a Walker-Le Grande Coupe for drug magnate Eli Lilly.
