Known History

Body made by Pourtout in 1948

 

First example of this "transition" model combining the pre-war style and the integral pontoon line

 

Was exhibited on the Pourtout stand at the 1948 Paris Motor Show

 

Participated in many Concours d’Elégance (like Enghein-les-Bains in 1949 or the concours of "La Grande Cascade" at the Bois de Boulogne in 1949 too)

 

Property of the Marquis de Cuevas in 1952 (he owned and managed a famous ballet company)

 

It then went through the hands of several French owners

 

In 1988-1989, the body, paintwork and upholstery of the car were restored by the Atelier Automobiles Anciennes in Chambray-les-Tours (AAAT)

 

Claude Pourtout, Marcel’s Pourtout son, who supervised the restoration work, certified that this car was built by his father’s company

 

Sold at an auction in New York in 1989, the car has since been part of various American collections

 

This matching number car works perfectly. Only 43,405 km from new.

 

Ready to appear at the main international Concours d’Elegance events
