The L 29 was introduced to fill the gap between ACD's Auburn and Duesenberg lines. Prices initially ranged from $3095 t0 $3295. It was the first front wheel drive auto available to the American public. Approximately 5000 were produced in all the body styles; about 300 survive today. FWD allowed for a lower profile and many connoisseurs consider the L 29 to be the most stylish American car of the period. The Great Depression intervened and production was halted in 1932.

Other innovations include constant velocity joints, de Dion suspension and inboard brakes
