Serial number 7403620
Exceptional original condition
First FIVA prize at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance 2017

Rare in France, the offered model is the most emblematic model of the 1947 range, the convertible. We saw the same at the hands of the biggest stars of Hollywood and even of President Eisenhower. This car has the particularity of having kept its paint and its original batch of wood. All numbers are matching. These exceptional qualities enabled it to obtain the FIVA (Best preserved vehicle) preservation prize at Chantilly Arts & Elegance 2017. Despite its inimitable charm as a vintage automobile, the car was fully reliable, engine, transmission, electricity have been redone, brakes, convertible top and tires are new. The work was carried out by the JP Classic garage in Puteaux, known for its respect for the original assemblies. Since then, this car has participated in several outings, including the 2018 Enghien - Le Touquet rally, and drives regularly. The car has, among other things, known the honors of a television report during the Traversée de Paris 2019. A rare opportunity to acquire in France a great classic, eligible for the CCCA, the Classic Car Club of America!
