Shown at the 1937 New York Auto Show, this is the first 'Teardrop' by Figoni & Falaschi using the fabulous fastback style. It is one of three using an alloy body and it is also fitted with a steel sliding roof. It was sold new to a member of the 1936 Australian Olympic bobsled team, who had become a socialite in Hollywood. After the War, the front was mildly modified with the concealed headlights replaced by brighter external ones. It returned to Europe and passed through various hands and during the 1990s was extensively campaigned in historic events. The current owner acquired the car during the 2000 Monterey Historic Races and handed it to model expert David Carte for a full restoration to its original configuration. The spectacular result was first shown to the world during the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. (Source: From Passion to Perfection, by Richard Adatto)
