Chassis number 2199 was sold to William McDuffie from Los Angeles in 1933, where the filmmakers quickly became aware of the car. The Duesenberg had a big appearance in the film 'She had to Eat'.

Later owners were the 'Motor Trend' columnist Robert J. Gottlieb, William Coverdale - one of the first members of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club . In the mid-80s, the Duesenberg became part of the Rick Carroll collection in Florida, from which the current owner bought it.
