Barker Duesenberg J Towncar #J159 2190 1929
7.5/10 rating (4 votes)
No video selected.


This Duesenberg Model J (J159-2190), an early right hand drive, wears the only 'Town Car' or 'Sedanca de Ville' coachwork ever constructed by Barker on a Duesenberg. Barker displayed the car at the 1929 Olympia Auto Show in London and labeled it as a Barker instead of a Duesenberg. There where no Duesenberg badges to be found on the car, except for the firewall.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
