One of the most memorable and distinctive customs of the early
post-war era, based on a matching-numbers Duesenberg J chassis and
engine. Believed to have been built by David Clark of Virginia, and
later California, after the original sedan body was separated from
the chassis. Clark built his unique creation using early post-war
Cadillac and Oldsmobile panels, and trim, along with recycled bits
of the original Murphy coachwork and body fittings like door
handles and the rear cockpit trim. It survives with its original
engine, chassis, and gearbox intact. Throughout the years, J-462
has been owned by a series of prominent and influential collectors
including M.L. Cohn, James Leake, and Homer Fitterling, earning its
oversize steer horns and "Big Cow" sobriquet along the way. It has
been in the care of a devoted ACD collector and enthusiast for the
past decade and remains in well-preserved condition. Undeniably
distinctive and undoubtedly controversial, J-462 is an important
footnote in Duesenberg history, representing one of the earliest
attempts to re-style the mighty Model J for the post-war era, and
critically, ensuring the long-term survival of a genuine Model J
chassis. This vehicle just arrived, and a full description is
coming soon. Please contact Hyman Ltd for more details. Offers
