    This is Duesenberg J-437, chassis 2450. "Tapertail", designed by Gordon Buehrig and built by Weymann. Here are images taken by me at the Peeble Beach Concours in 2000. It was featured in a class of boattail designs.

    Gordon Buehrig called Duesenberg Model J a "rolling sculpture"
    The Tapertail is for sure a rolling sculpture, a masterpiece
