Bugatti Type 43 (Derham coachwork)

(originally posted at Facebook on October 11, 2011 at 12:03pm)

This coachwork has along and interesting story and too long to tell here.  But it spent most of it’s history in the SoCal / Los Angeles area.  Originally a Bugatti Type 43 that was rebodied (or initially bodied?) when it came to the USA by Derham Coachworks of Pennsylvania.  Eventually it ended up with a Ford 6-cylinder in it and a bunch of other questionable modifications.  This is how it looked awhile ago — the Bugatti Type 43 chassis and suspension parts were purchased and shipped back to Europe.  The body was available and I was too late to do the deal to acquire.  Supposedly it is going to become a “street rod” now.

Interesting car though…
