We had the pleasure of doing some of the restoration work on this 1932 Bugatti Type 49 Roadster. You can see some of the work in progress in a previous blog post here: http://thepanelshop.net/bugatti-type-49/.
The Type 49 will be auctioned off by Bonhams this weekend at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. An excerpt from the Bonhams listing:
Over the course of the last two decades, the Bugatti has been systematically refurbished as an owner managed project and utilizing the resources of talented experts in this home state of Connecticut. This has included an engine rebuild and trim work at Automotive Restorations in Stratford, paintwork by Blackhorse Garage in Bridgeport and the wiring and bodywork carried out by the Lefferts brothers’ Vintage Auto Restorations in Ridgefield. The work was completed at the end of 2016 and the car in its final form may be considered to be still in a running in stage.
