Chassis# 2250 – Engine# J-229 Reginald Parsons III designed the body and had it built by Seattle Auto Rebuild Co. He then bought a new Duesenberg chassis (Chassis# 2451 with Engine# J-439) and had them mount the new body on this chassis. This 1931 chassis was bought in Indianapolis and shipped to Seattle on a flat car. The body was custom made on the chassis in Seattle by the Seattle Auto Rebuild, owner Henry A. Pratt. It was delivered to Reginald B. Parsons in the summer of 1931, in Seattle. The design was original by Parsons, (attending the architectural dept. of the Yale school of architecture at the time). This body was the first privately designed body with an integrated truck. This chassis and engine was originally fitted with a Willoughby Limousine body in 1931. It is believed that sometime in the 1970’s this body was fitted to the current chassis and engine. Chassis# 2250 and Engine# J-229 have always been together since it left the Duesenberg factory. The whereabouts of the original Willoughby Limousine body is unknown. The car is currently owned by a man from California and he has owned the car since 1979. The car was last started and ran about 10 years ago. According to the owner it was running extremely good, but that was 10 years ago. This very special car is a great candidate for a complete restoration.
