Negotiations ,iwith the Duesenberg
company to induce It to choose Indian
apolis as its manufacturing center were
started last January by Myron It. Green,
director of the bureau of industry, fol
lowing receipt of a report that there was
to be a Duesenberg car manufactured.
Mr. Worthington has held frequent
conferences for several months with the
officers of the company, conferring with
them on preliminary organization plans.
“Prominent business men of Cleve
land,’’ Mr. Worthington said, “have been
bolding out attractive inducements for
them to locate in Cleveland, but after
strenuous efforts we have succeeded in
inducing them to locate at Indianapolis.
“While the Duesenberg motor not only
holds many speed records, the motor
also has been successfully used in pleas
ure cars, aeroplanes, tractors and as a
marine motor.
"In the future, however, it will be con
fined to pleasure ears manufactured In
the Indianapolis factory bearing the name
of ‘Duesenebrg.’
“Their selling organization is com
plete and thev will come to Indianapolis
with bona fide orders from licensed
dealers under contract for five years to
insure their output for the full five-year
During the war Duesenberg’s plant at
Elizabeth. N. J., was turned over to the
government for the manufacture of aero
plane motors of 850 horsepower, these
being the largest motors of their type
in the world.
After the war the company's plant was
sold to the Wyllis corporation.
As soon as present contracts expire,
which will be in u few months, no man
ufacturer will be permitted to use the
Duesenberg motor, except the Duesen
berff Automobile and Motors Company,
and the motors for the new car will be
manufactured at the Indianapolis plant.
