About Quiz #432: 1900 Darracq 6.5 HP


1901 darracq_6.5hp_470

It was only after that we sent out a Newsletter with a second view on last Saturday's quiz car when a load of good and very complete answers came in. It was obvious that by this second shot the car was a lot easier to recognise. From various sources including the restoration section of specialist Thornley Kelham.  Some avid readers even provided 90 year old film footage shot during the London-Brighton run of 1928(!) with the Darracq appearing at 0:50.  It appears a massive amount of information is available about this famous Darracq... one you know it is a Darracq! In this very specific quiz we thought it is no more than justified than to appoint this weeks win to the one man who had marque, type ( "C")  and coachbuilder Vedrine correct. This only based on the the the rear end quiz shot in the movers truck. Congratulations to Thierry Bergue!

Finally here showing the 1900 Darracq proudly showing upon arrival at Madeira drive after another succesful LBVCR, the 2015 edition.  But if the weather will be as splendid as shown here...
