We read with great interest your article regarding the Rochester Duesenberg. First, I would like to say that Harrah’s Automobile Collection also has a Rochester with a Rochester Duesenberg engine. It is a 1920 Model-475 touring car, as I note that your article says the only other one is owned by Art Austria of California.
Secondly, Mr. Harrah noted with interest the list of cars that were built using the Rochester Duesenberg engine. Two of these makes are completely unfamiliar to us, and we could not find a listing of them in “The World’s Automobiles” by G. R. Doyle. These two makes are the Fremocar and the Shadwyck. [They were listed in an American source of reference.—Ed.] Here at the museum we all enjoy reading your fine magazine, and look forward to each issue.
