Alloy wheels, single sidemount, single aeroscreen. – Original everything right down to the body undertrays, one of the original series of 'Lyon' Type 35s. Bought new by Wallace Bird, acquired from the Bird estate in 1962 by Henry Austin Clark, Jr. (for $1,750) and by the present owner from Clark. Restored in 2004 with all due sympathy to its originality and as good as it gets. Includes the original fuel tank, leather gearbox cover, road equipment and the original ARCA dash plate. – It helps to have a guide and in this case it was Scott Sargent who has maintained this Bugatti as well as the Williamsons' peerless collection. He could not have been more effusive in his praise for this Type 35's originality and completeness as well as the care it has received in the hands of its three owners. It is a marvelous piece of history, but it runs and drives, by all available evidence, superbly, lightly and with alacrity. This is a record price for a Type 35 and it deserves to be.
