my dad grew up 60 miles NW of new york city. worked at small garages and had many cars. used to service a local duesenburg and drove it on a number of occasions. he also owned a mid-30's V12 caddy that had a ford flathead V8 installed. i guess the original motor was removed for various reasons. he did not recall what trans was in the car. only had it for a short while.
