Usually the scam is that the amount on the cheque is more than the item to be paid for. They want you to return the difference to them.
In case anybodyÝs identity is unknown, take any cheques to the bank first, and when this is Ok, then ship the item. Do not send any money to cover up the difference.
If you're succesful buying or selling a Bugatti because of this page, I would appreciate it if you let me know (to remove the ad), and of course all financial donations are welcome. (Consider 1/2 % of the price, so I can buy my own Bugatti after selling two hundred) :-(
Please write or e-mail me if you have a request, and want me to look out for a certain type of Bugatti (or major part) for you!.
Bugatti T57 Atalante
Provenance and history
Produced in February 1936 is was delivered by Molsheim directly to Mr. Tiberghien in France, on the 20th of March of that year. It first carried a factory Galibier body which was no longer on the car when Fritz Schlumpf acquired it as a rolling chassis in the 1950’s. He kept the car in Malmerspach first and in Mulhouse later . Schlumpf also owned 57618, which he bought directly from the Bugatti family. It had a late and rare aluminium Atalante body ( only 6 made) . This car had been sold new in 1938 to his future son in law, François Count de Boigne, who married Ettore’s daughter Lydia in 1940. But de Boigne crashed the car before the war and it came back to the factory in Molsheim. Repairs were not undertaken because of the war . It too was moved to Schlumpf at Mulhouse in 1962 where it stood for 35 years. It was never repaired after the accident.
The current owner bought it from his widow in 2004. He had the body rebuilt again as it had not been done to today’s standards. Today , ten years later , the car is in perfect order both mechanically and cosmetically, running easily with good oil pressure, starting well. It is in excellent condition, having run about 3200 kms since its restoration. The car has 57386 matching numbers and is completely original in all respects – with the exception that the body was originally on 57618. It has 32000 km on the clock since new. It has also been imported into Switzerland in 2004.

1 of 42 Type 40 "Jean Bugatti Roadsters" Built, and 1 of 13 Surviving Cars, Superb Integrity and Matching Numbers Throughout
Built in the heyday of Bugatti’s illustrious Grand Prix successes, the Type 40 was among the company’s smallest offerings, but incorporated many of the same innovations that distinguished the company’s cars both on and off the track. The engine was virtually identically to that of the Type 37 Grand Prix car, a single overhead camshaft inline four with three valves per cylinder. A 4-speed gearbox transmitted power to the rear wheels. A total of 775 examples were built, of which just 42 wore the most sporting and beautiful “Jean Bugatti Roadster” bodywork, itself adapted from the stunning open bodywork he had designed for the eight-cylinder Type 43A.
Of the 42 Type 40s built with this bodywork, just 13 survive today, and this is an exceptionally original example that retains its original body, frame, engine, and gearbox. Jean Bugatti personally kept the first Type 40 with this bodywork, finished in the same color that this car wears: two tone black and red. Originally ordered by Bugatti’s Paris agent, Larrousé, this chassis was completed in January of 1930 and the body completed in August of 1930. It is one of four such cars ordered by Larrousé. The car was sold new in France and remained with French owners its entire life until 2013. By the 1950s, the car is believed to have found its way to the Loire valley, registered 243 BW 41. It was acquired in that region in 1961 by a Jean Montot, who owned the car, then registered 188 FA 37, until his death in 1984. Its next keeper had the car painted and owned the car for 29 years, from 1984 until 2013, at which point it was sold to an American and imported to the United States.
The car retains all of its original mechanical components, numbered consistently to the chassis, as well as its original chassis plate and wood panels stamped “22”, identifying this car as the 22nd Jean Bugatti Roadster built. The dashboard instruments are also entirely correct. Few Bugattis can claim such an exceptional level of originality.
The car’s presentation is quite authentic and generally original in appearance, although the paint was renewed about thirty years ago. It is now showing patina with some stress cracks and areas where it is lifting or peeling. The wood subframe of the body is in excellent shape throughout and the car appears quite correct in terms of accessories and equipment, including wheels, Scintilla headlamps, and other lighting. The glass is in good shape, as are the lights. The chrome is in good shape although not freshly restored. The top is excellent and appears recently restored, including the wood frame.
The interior is in very good condition with excellent leather seats and door panels. The wood steering wheel is in excellent restored shape, as are the instruments. The dashboard wood is in very nice condition while the pedals and shifter show patina and retain the intricate mechanical appearance that distinguishes Bugattis of this period. The tachometer is inoperative at this time.
The engine compartment continues the beautiful mechanical aesthetic that is visible in the interior of the car. The engine and firewall are beautifully etched alloy, and carefully wrought piping conveys fluids to and from the engine. The appearance is generally authentic and period correct, with original equipment such as charging system, choke, and ignition advance/retard mechanism.
The car runs and drives well. It starts easily, and operates as it should. The brakes work well, the transmission shifts properly, and the chassis and steering are coherent and communicative. The previous owner reports that it is very reliable.
This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire an extraordinarily rare car. Wearing the most sporting and desirable body available on the Type 40, this “Jean Bugatti Roadster” is one of just a handful in existence and is exceptionally honest and undisturbed, retaining its original engine, gearbox, and body. The car has been inspected and documented by Bugatti historian Pierre Yves Laugier and enjoys excellent history with few known owners. It is widely eligible for the world’s most prestigious events including the Mille Miglia and will be an exceptional addition to any collection.

One of a two type 57's we are selling; The cars are available individually or together as a pair.
The chassis was delivered in 1934 to Guidelam Ltd in Southampton, UK for the consideration of 60.000 Francs
It was then shipped to Vanvooren to recieve a very elegant open body. The model was called Ventoux Tourist Trophy Torpedo.
Similar bodys were built for chassis 214 - 224 - 228 - 231 -244 and 414.
An all new aluminium body was built some years ago (replacing the original body) in the style of the T 57S Competition Torpedo Prototype with inch perfect dimensions taken from the original factory blueprints. The full restoration took an enormous amount of time & a vast sum of money; the equivalent of 500.000+- Euros in today's money was spent. Many early Bugatti experts were involved and most parts were sourced new in Molsheim. The car Moved into the hands of the current owner more than a decade ago. The now elderly owner, a very well known Bugatti expert brought the car up to the concours condition we find it in today. The engine, chassis and aluminium bodywork were redone and detailed to perfection. The attention to detail is incredible. The owner has used the car regularly for himself touring in the southern parts of Europe.
This T57 drives & sounds like a Grand Prix Bugatti and the engine is very powerful. It pulls from low revs and is incredibly strong. Compared to other similar models, which are much heavier of course, it behaves a little like a Grand Prix Alfa Romeo 8c. Very very fast and precise, but also utterly stable & civilized.
The car is well known in Bugatti circles but was never on the open market. It starts at the button and needs nothing. A real opportunity for the ... collector.
The car will be displayed on our stand at Technoclassica in Essen if a sales contract has not been entered into by the start of March.

A stunning Jewel of a car in absolutely top order. This is one of a pair we are selling for the owner & are available as a pair or separately. This car was dismantled during the war due to a lack of readily available spare parts & stored for the duration. After the war it was discovered by Kurt Kiefer, the founder & then president of the German Bugatti club. He undertook a complete rebuild of the engine utilizing the services of Bugatti "Pope" Hans Wilde at his workshop in Gelsenkirchen.
An original Guillore of Paris body was obtained for the car which had been found in Molshiem & originally destined for a 57 before hostilities interrupted its progress. The Guillore body has a unique glass sliding sunroof not dissimilar to the atlantic design. It is a delightful tear drop fastback shape which looks stunning from any angle.
In 1984 the engine was dis-assembled checked & found to be in superb order with a new crank shaft, pistons, valves etc etc. Since then the car has been sparingly used on private tours. The car is thus in superb condition mechanically & absolutely ready for use.
We photographed the car near the current owners German home after driving it up a nearby mountain to take advantage of the early morning light & stunning views; a perfect setting for the car. Hearing the straight eight engine howling up the mountain was music in itself. One has to drive & experience this car to appreciate how special it is & how it touches ones soul.
The car features in Barrie Prices type 57 book on page 111. It was also the template for a die cast model series, a piece of which comes with the car.
Finished in deep black the exterior is flawless & in simply superb condition set of beautifully by the chrome wire wheels to the 4 corners. Under the bonnet the twin cam straight eight is highly detailed & perfect. The interior of the car is a wonderfully mellow tobacco leather to the seating surfaces & door cards, complimented by a walnut dash board. The requisite instrumentation is all present & correct.

Cette authentique Bugatti T-40 est une des 830 Bugatti Grand Sport (toutes carrosseries confondues : cabriolets , coach et coupés) sorties des ateliers de Molsheim à partir de 1927.
Elle figure sous le n°17 sur le livre comptable d'Ettore Bugatti (novembre 1927 à 1928) : châssis n°40611, moteur n°534.
D'abord vendue à Mr Philippe Uspert le 9 juin 1928 elle est achetée en 1970 par M. JPA qui fait refaire une partie de la boiserie avant de s'en séparer en 1978. Le nouveau propriétaire, un collectionneur trés connu, la conserve jusqu'en 2000, date à laquelle je m'en porte acquéreur.
A cette occasion le moteur est totalement reconditionné par la société VMI (Ventoux Moteur Ingénierie). Le couple conique d'origine de la voiture est remplacé par un couple conique de Bugatti T-37 afin de pouvoir atteindre la vitesse maximale à 3000 tr/mn (vs 4200 tr/mn d'origine). Les flectors de transmission d'origine sont remplacés par des entrainements Glaenzer plus fiables. Enfin, un filtre à particules est installé de manière à pouvoir rouler à l'essence sans plomb sans additif.
En 2010, outre les opérations d'entretien courant, le moteur a été démonté pour un contrôle complet (villebrequin, bielles, pistons, arbres à cames).
Depuis 2000 cette Bugatti est présente a de nombreuses manifestations (Monthléry, course de cote de Gaillon, centenaire du circuit de Dieppe, rallye de Fréfus, Douves d'Evreux...). Elle démarre et roule très régulièrement et aura parcouru, depuis sa construction en 1927, un peu plus de 100.000 kilomètres de plaisir !

As a prelude to the change in formula for the 1926 season, the Factory ran a number of unsupercharged 1.5-litre engines on three separate occasions during the 1925 season. Firstly in two monoposto Type 36, which appeared but did not run at Montlhéry in May. The second and considerably more successful outing was for a team of five road-equipped cars which competed in the 1,500cc class of the Touring Grand Prix held at the same venue in July.
The rules and regulations of this event were briefly as follows - Each car in each class had to equipped with ‘touring’ coachwork, the design of which was left to the constructor. Strict restrictions governed the size of the screens and stipulated the requirement, in open cars, for an efficient hood of ample proportions, to be fully operable by the driver. Two spare wheels were allowed, along with an unlimited number of tyres and tubes and any spare parts desired that could be carried. All accessories had to be fitted in a proper manner and all cars had to fitted with an electric starter. No starting handle was allowed except carried, under seal, in the tool box for emergency.
The Bugatti team was a resounding success. Of twenty two entrants and after 11hrs 12 min and 7 sec of racing, covering 950km, Bugatti took 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the 1,500cc class. Driven by Costantini (No.22), de Viscaya, Foresti and Goux accordingly. The impressive point to take from the end results is that the Bugattis, at an average of 84.8km per hour, only averaged 1.2km per hour less that the big 5-litre cars.
These same five cars, now fitted with standard GP bodies went on to contest the Voiturette Grand Prix at Monza in September of the same year.
About a year later a factory supplied a car, a factory photo of which can be seen below, fitted with a four-cylinder engine that was reportedly driven by Williams. The wings had been modified to bring the spare wheel aft of the bonnet on the drivers side and the second spare wheel had been removed. A similar car, maybe even the same car, was then imported by Jack Lemon-Burton to England in 1927. Owned by DC Cook it ran at Southport in 1927.
This stunning car we are delighted to have the unique opportunity to offer for sale represents the passionate restoration of one of the most highly respected and renown names in the Bugatti community. A man whose career racing and collecting Bugatti spans right back to the early 1960’s where he was a regular visiter to the Bugatti Factory itself when all of the spares and final parts were being disbanded.
The restoration of this car started back in 1971 with the dream of restoring a car back to the specification of those five team cars from the 1925 Touring Grand Prix. Riding on a chassis supplied by renown collector Uwe Hucke in the late 1970’s all of the mechanical components, where possible, are original even down to the dynamo, magneto drive, and incredibly rare original gearbox lid carrying its original starter motor. The back axle is a correct factory single bolt early example, the front axle is correct, original and numbered, all of the springs, shock absorbers and brakes are original (fitted with new shoes), there is even a very rare set of five original beaded edge wheels with the car. The gearbox center casing is new but with original end plates and internals.
Fitted with an original Bosch magneto all of the instruments are correct and original. The original inlet manifold is unique to the unblown 1.5-litre engines and the screen is one of the original screens manufactured to those five cars and came from the factory spares bought by the Bugatti Owners Club back in the early 1970’s.
The engine, No. 112, is a proper original 2-litre GP engine. Due to the originality of the 2-litre, numbered, roller bearing crankshaft, the specification was kept as 2-litre. The cam box and lid is original and numbered and even the cylinder blocks are original. The elegant body with its flowing wings has been beautifully crafted during the restoration and bar the original screen and the original early (re-cored) radiator, is new.
The attention to detail and originality that has gone into this restoration is second to none and it would be physically impossible to assemble this many original parts to restore a car to this level again. Perfectly balanced and a delight to drive as all of those early beaded edge cars are and with a noise that you only get from a straight eight Grand Prix Bugatti, this is a unique opportunity to acquire a Grand Prix Bugatti with the subtle refinements of a racing touring body.

This particular car is well known in Bugatti circles. Assembled and restored by Ivan Dutton in the early 1990’s using mostly original Type 44 parts. The chassis a shortened Type 44 frame stamped 44376, with the middle section modified by Allan Wragg to look like a Type 43. The stamping of 44376 on the front near side indicates that it was probably delivered to Germany or Holland or another country that required the chassis to be stamped on the frame itself. The engine is number 470, probably ex-44725, and is fitted with with Ivan and Tim Dutton’s prototype fabricated inlet manifold fed by a pair of SU carburetors. The gearbox is a replica GP box and the car, as described in the BOC register, ‘in all other aspects it is a standard Type 44’.
The front and rear axles are both original and the rear axle is numbered. The wheels and brakes are also original and the radiator is of original Type 43 origin. The sporty looking lightweight body is new, with a very practical trunk mounted behind the two seats making this a very usable and exciting fast touring car.
Ivan Dutton finished the restoration in time to use it as the support car in the 1995 Italian Rally. Ivan sold the car to well know Bugatti enthusiast Dereck Hitchman in 1996 who campaigned and used the car successfully before it passed into its current ownership, another well known and regarded member of the BOC, in 2006. Serviced and maintained during the Hitchman’s ownership by Ivan Dutton Ltd and in its current ownership by the owner and Malcolm Gentrey. In it current ownership it has been used for numerous European tours to Spain and France without any problems. A regular competitor at Prescott this car currently holds the hill record for a Type 44.
If you are looking for exciting performance, coupled with usability and reliability for the wide array of Bugatti rallies, hill climbs and events around the globe this is the car. Well restored, proven, well maintained and ready to go.

General history: This Bugatti Type 57 was purchased in 1966 by Jean-Michel Cerede from Claude Martin, son of ‘Bear Martin’ pilot and champion of Amilcar and ever since it has been French-registered as ‘1313 SJ 75’. In 1967 some spare parts for the rear axle were bought from the factory and fitted on the car by Vergt while the following year a replacement engine, found in Marseilles by Jacques Dumontant and rebuilt by Bugatti specialist Hauswald (Levallois Perret) was installed (84/57126 designation). This engine is deemed to be the last engine completely rebuilt by Hauswald before he ceased operations. During assembly it was equipped with an intake pipe of type 101 and a dual Weber carburetor body inverted provided by the Bugatti factory. The bodywork was restored and repainted in 1982 by Gervais, and the interior re-carpeted in 1985.
Jean-Michel Cérède completed numerous rallies with his Type 57: Paris-Deauville many times, Wiesbaden in 1967, 100 Bugatti à Deauville in 1978, several Paris-Bordeaux, etc. The car comes with its French Carte Grise recording the correct chassis number.
Its current owner purchased the car on 7 February 2006 through an auction in France. Once he imported in Greece he decided to carry out several minor paint repairs.
The asking price is 440000 euros.

Body No.: 1146

Rear Axle No.: 585
This Bugatti was ordered new by the official agent Arnaud in Lyon, France for an unknown clien in December of 1935. Assembly took place in January and February of 1936 and the car was fitted from new with a standard Type 57 engine with the internal number 282 which it still retains to this day. The car was fitted with an optional down-draft carburetor and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. The Ventoux coachwork is the early Series One type with separate partitioned rear trunk. It was otherwise a standard production example with normal right-hand-drive steering.
Chassis 57345, would be one of the few Ventoux-bodied cars that would be completed without running boards. It was finished with the usual Ventoux touches of the flat, uncluttered wooden dash, simple steering wheel and the single-panel leather seats, as well as devoid of external running boards, 57345 would also have the 3.3-liter DOHC eight-cylinder engine with the single Stromberg carburetor helping to produce easily around 145bhp at an astonishing 5,000rpm.
Unfortunately, the car's early history is relatively unknown but it would survive the Second World War remarkably well and would eventually be sold in 1960 by a dealer in Paris where it had been hidden away safely during the war. From there, the Ventoux Type 57 would be bought by J.W. Harrison of Arlington, Virginia, and therefore, would make its way to the United States. Soon after arriving, the car would become registered with the American Bugatti Club where it has always been considered the benchmark of originality and correctness by which all others are judged.
The car would remain with Mr. Harrison until the early 1970s when it was purchased by David Uihlein. Uihlein would not purchase the car and have it sit as part of some boring, static collection, Instead, 57345 would be a car regularly driven to and from different everyday events and would continue in this capacity well into the late 1990s when David's health prevented his full enjoyment of his most treasured Bugatti.
Over the course of its life, the Type 57 Ventoux has been maintained and has undergone a number of necessary cosmetic and mechanical work but always under David's watchful eye to ensure it remained both functional and as original as possible. Finished in a Black and French Blue livery, the car is a striking thing to behold. Retaining its original motor, 57345 would appear to be highly original in a number of other ways, including its leather interior. In addition to that, each panel and piece of trim and bright work is delicately stamped with the Type No. "57" and the vehicle's body number "1146" is likewise found on all major alloy body panels.
This period correct and highly desirable first series Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux was a personal favorite of David Uihlein who was a most avid fan and collector of original, unrestored and ultra period-correct vehicles of all types. He told me personally on several occasions that this particular Ventoux was one of the most original and correct examples he had ever encountered and that it would remain with him until he passed away... something that in the end came to be.
David enthusiastically enjoyed the car for more than 30 years and it was never restored while in his care or needed to be as he never intended it to be anything but fun transportation. Aside from regular services, paint and touch-up work to deal with age related issues, the car remains essentially as ordered, built and delivered new.
When I last saw the car nearly 20 years ago, I considered it to be a remarkably original survivor. Many back then however deemed it only suitable as a starting point for a full restoration given the fact that it had at that point never been touched or restored before. Today, it is treasured for its originality and purity and likely one of the very last survivors that remains this original and correct.
During my most recent inspection, I was amazed to find hand written notes from June 1977 on the back of a letter addressed to David in which he details recent services and work he performed to the car. In addition to this was a a Standard Oil Company Map of Wisconsin from 1970, something that likely came in quite handy for David as he travelled out and about the countryside in his treasured Bugatti. Shortly before his death, he left his family a set of written starting and driving instructions. These two have been carefully preserved and were left under the driver's seat upon his passing to make ease of use for the next owner that much more enjoyable.
David is no longer with us, but his passion and enthusiasm are forever preserved in this amazing automobile!

Looks very period with beaded edge tyres on alloy wheels, fitted with modern plain bearing crank for reliability and electric start for convenience. Registered as BC48 with the BOC as car has a gap in its history between 1948-69.
PRICE: £425000 sterling.
