Indeed! Now paint some graveyard sceneries and bats on it, add some skulls and you'll get the ultimate Goth-car! :lol: :twisted:

Demonic is debatable in the case of the Mars Duesenberg. If you want unbridled demonism,
something supremely sinister, one needs go no farther than...viewtopic.php?f=76&t=2513

Might there be some connection between these bloated cars of Heinz and Mars and the source of their fortunes?? ;)

Oh, by the way, if anyone is interested in wide-bodied Duesies there used to be some period footage of the Father Divine car on YouTube. I haven't looked recently, but feeding in "Father Divine" or "Peace Mission" should do it if it is still there.

1932 Duesenberg J Bohman & Schwartz Aero “Mudd” Coupe.

The car was known as "The Circus Wagon" when painted two tone yellow with black cloth.
I have found an old picture where you can clearly see the original one-piece exhaust manifold.

Also note that the car has a different radiator, which, I believe to recall, came from a Buick. The car was later fitted with an original Duesenberg radiator shell.

And here's a more recent picture. Before or after "The Circus Wagon" configuration?
Spot the differences. ;)

Bohman & Schwartz Duesenberg J Airflow Coupe #J212-2234 starts life as Derham-swb-sedan in 1932. The B&Sch-aerodynamic-body was built-up in 1937.

I think the Mudd Coupé was restored in pre-Circus black first (as it appeared in Automobile Quarterly) but with the wrong details, then revamped to Circus colors for an owner who did not get it al all, and then re-restored more properly. Now if someone would get the white sidewall tyres off, and put the right wheels on, it would look the part. And much more fashionable to Pebble Beach norms of 2009 and on, which stipulate inofficially that black side walls are 'en voque'.....

Re: Circus Wagon

You probably already know this, but the term Circus Wagon is a rather
derogatory name for the overly bright, multi-hued colors that were employed
in the '60's and '70's restorations of otherwise somberly-colored cars.

Calling a car a Circus Wagon is not a compliment, by any means. Oranges,
lavenders, apple greens on, say, a staid Pierce-Arrow or Packard were all the rage,
and happily, with a few exceptions, are part of a trend whose time has long passed.

These days, it's similar to a car being Pebble-Beached, a most applicable
phrase, new to me, that I find quite amusing. And one I look forward to using
at my earliest convenience! :twisted:

This is trend that went well into the 1980s. A sub category to it had to be the predisposition to paint every 500k/540k Mercedes bright red.
