The featured H6B is one of several Hispanos to be bodied by Labourdette between 1919 and 1925. Originally ordered by and delivered Suzanne Deutsche de la Meurthe in 1922, little is known about its subsequent history until it resurfaced in the 1970s. At that time it was owned by a member of the Labourdette family, who sold the car to a French collector. Since then it has been fully restored to its original condition and today is believed to be the only Hispano Suiza fitted with an original Labourdette Skiff body.

In superb condition, it was shown at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance by great Hispano Suiza authority Jules Heuman. In 1989 a similar Labourdette Hispano won the much coveted 'Best of Show' at the prestigious Concours. It has since joined the Mullin Collection and is on display in the Mullin Automotive Museum.
