Chassis: 55231
Like the majority of Type 55s built, this example was built in 1932 and fitted with the Roadster body at the factory. It was delivered new to France and has since passed through the hands of noted collectors like Ralph Lauren and Bill Ainscough. Since 2005, chassis 55231 has been in Dutch ownership and regularly entered in concours and road rallies. It is seen here at two such occasions, the 2006 Concorso d'Elegance Villa d'Este and the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it finished second in class.
