A Paulin, Pourtout or Peugeot Mystery? (update:1936 Labourdette Delage V12 Vutotal Aerodynamique)

The last Walter Miller mystery photo this week is in our view also the most sensational car. A body which has caused us headaches as this must be a very well known car. And yes we found it, at least a very good lookalike. We're sure you will find as well. Yet at the moment you see it you probably will experience the same problems as we had. The overall profile and side window cutouts are nearly exactly the same as the famous 2005 Pebble Beach Best of Show: the 1937 Delage D8 Aerodynamic  Coupe by Pourtout.  But 'our' car is much shorter, smaller and lower. Not to mention the way-out tail fin. Did Georges Paulin design - or did Pourtout build - a similar body for let's say an Alfa 6C 1750? Or is it 'just' the coupe version of Peugeot's 1936 402 Andreau Aerodynamic?

Update by Richard Armstrong who seems well educated on the subject, see first comment below.

Jenatzys Mercedes PhotoHelp me find a quality image of this photograph.  It was taken during the 1903 Paris-Madrid race and is of Camille Jenatzy's Mercedes at speed taken by the artist Guido Sigriste who invented the high speed camera used.  This version was taken from a webpage and is the only version I have been able to find.  The glass plates were printed from in the 1950's,  even quatity digital images would be great.

Mystery build 1919 Cadillac Coachbuilt PU

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Author: James Long Monday, 30 December 2013

Mystery build 1919 Cadillac Coachbuilt PUI found this in a field yesterday and brought it home. Works looks like Don Lee's work. Could be Harley Earle but so many shops in Californis could have dine this quality as well. it appears that the truck chassis was ordered for this body as a short wheel base 125" and the 5 to 1 rear end. Lights are to early but Cadillac none the less.
