Duesenberg chassis J-350, chassis number 2370, both numbers-matching, rode on the long 153.5-inch wheelbase. It was originally fitted with limousine coachwork, like many of the long-wheelbase Model Js; in this case its body was furnished by Judkins.Then it was sold to a gentleman named Joseph Taylor, who operated Springhill Farms in Mars, Pennsylvania. Taylor's farm specialized in Hereford cattle and Berkshire swine, the latter prized for its rich, marbled meat. It appears that Taylor cut off the Judkins bodywork aft of the chauffeur's seat, and then bolted a simple stake body to the rear chassis.The records show that after Taylor was done with it, it passed through four more owners, the last of whom, in Washington State, turned it back into a Full Classic. J-350 was retrofitted with a limousine body by Willoughby that was originally installed on J-237. The Judkins coachwork, or what was left of it, was lost.Found on https://www.facebook.com/groups/321577158048111/Today it looks like this
