NYC Mayor Jimmy Walker's Duesenberg?


Recommended Posts

Definitely a Duesenberg Model J.

 

Low windshield is unique.    Similar to J-183 with Derham body that was delivered new to Edwin Corning.   Difference being the car  in your pictures has center hung doors.


Did Jimmy Walker actually own the car?  I don't see any obvious records of that.

What is the "J"number and I will look it up in the Wolff Notes

I think at one time J183 powered a hot rod built by Jim Hoe and now may be

in a built up replica phaeton.

This is not J-183. Note the outline of the roof and the location of the door handles.

 

Agreed.  I noted the center hung doors in my post. 

 

I don't have a picture of J-334 Murphy Town Car which is attributed to Walker in your link.   Most of the Murphy's seem to have high windshields, however.
