Duesenberg early 1930s AAA Dreyer Sprint Car, originally powered by a Rochester Duesenberg Walking Beam engine. All original, history known from new. Built by Pop Dreyer for racing great Don Moore who in the 1920s drove for the Kline Kar team that used Duesenberg and RD engines in their cars. Don installed the WB engine himself. Walking Beam engine blew up in the 1940s and was discarded. Was replaced with the current 1941 Ford flathead six engine. Only WB engine race car known to exist. Locate a RD engine and install or display with the car. Shown Amelia Island Concours 2010. Lots of original photos, history.

Thanks for attaching that very informative article. The Duesenberg Walking Beam motor rights were sold to the Rochester Motor Co. around 1918. They modified the WB engine design and sold Rochester Duesenberg engines as a high end option in circa 1918-22 cars like Roamer, Revere, Kenworthy,etc. Hard to find a loose engine. Several are in passenger cars. My race car is the only known race car existing that originally had a Rochester Duesenberg WB engine installed in it when built. Thanks George
