Spot a pre-war car
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.
