The model the functional chrome side pipes were designed for was the SJ and the two SSJ's. These were all supercharged cars with functional chrome exhaust side pipes exiting the hood.
As I was telling Dave58210 in a PM yesterday, at the time I posted the question, I was thinking they ran from the supercharger. >> insert "brain fart" emocon here <<
But the more I think about it, you're right, the supercharger mounted beside the engine, and the exhaust pipes ran over the top of it

The chrome side pipes on all the other models were added after or special ordered at the purchase time. Some of the added pipes were non-functional, just for looks.
I understand that was quite an expensive option, although I have to wonder how much that would be for someone who could afford a Duesenberg

Go back and look at the Duesy engine Brian posted .You'll see that the supercharger is actually on top of the engine.

Yes, I believe you're right: Serial number JN 560/2585

There's an old say that I'm pretty sure applies here: "If you have to ask, you can't afford it."

And I notice that second picture is one of only a couple that had the 400-horse twin carb engine. Is that the Mormon Meteor?

And it's probably safe to say it was in decent shape when they started

I just dug into the Old Mans tool box and came up with this. What is it and what does it do?

And what would you put that monster in? A ship? A tank, maybe?
Surely it was too heavy to put in a car

And I notice it had the cams on a gear drive, the cars had a chain running up through the middle

Two engines were commissioned from Duesenburg for boat racing by H.E. Dodge ( son of THE Dodge) in 1936.
Her's a link to a very interesting article about the engine. Take a look at the site it's posted on. Lots of great info!

It was for a speedboat! (Looks like Boothboy types faster than I do - but then, so does everyone else in the world!)
