a missing body?

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Author: Politi Friday, 16 December 2016

Submitted for consideration, PreWarCar daily magazine. Insert photo of your choice, perhaps any of 7 or so(with delighted owner).
For quite sometime I have been covertly brousing about the internet antique automobile site, in hopes of a find.

Way back, somebody decided to change the body of their BUGATTI ROYALE, and put away the old body in a barn somewhere.
If anybody out there has a lead on the whereabouts of the barn, kindly let me know(with a secret comment below).
No collect calls.
Bird dog fee paid for any info leading to acquisition!

Hello, dear Vale owners,

I bought a 1933 Vale special by auction (Coys) and I am searching
the chassis number on the chassis frame.
Can anyone help with this?

Frank Sauerwald

editor: under which number is the chassis registered? Many cars liuke that and of the period had no chassis number and were registered with their engine number. 


Where to find earlier editions of "PWC Workshop" ?

This feature is excellent, and I read every new instalment with interest.

However, when I sometimes want to check an old issue, I find it difficult to search for it.

Would it not be possible to add a specific "PWC Workshop" line to the "Magazine" Scroll down menu? This would make it so much easier!

Thank you for the good work!

Sébastien Simon


Hello Sebastien,

Thanks for asking. In the new website that we are building currently this will be much easier.
However if you look at the homepage you see a Searchbox. You can enter   PWC Workshop  there and find all the stories easily.

J.P.Cotte has shown a photo of an 8 day car clock in the pages of you august magazine and asks for some idea of it's history. All I can tell him is that OCTOMAS is one of a large number of trade names used by Schild & Co. of La Chaux-de-Fonds. Along with OCTAVA, OCTODI & ORATOR. Schild & Co. must have more trade marks registered than any other manufacturer in Switzerland. My reference source is Swiss Timepiece Makers 1775- 1975 by Kathleen H. Pritchard vol 2.
