Chassis: 48773
In 1947, Henri Chapron acquired his second Type 145 chassis and like he did with 48772, fitted it with a stylish coupe body. Although very elegant, the understated lines did a very good job of hiding the Grand Prix chassis underneath, making this pair true wolves in sheep clothing. The first owner, Robert Cury, clearly knew what he had and raced the car in this guise with considerable success. It caught the attention of the Schlumpf brothers and they added it to their rapidly growing collection. Chassis 48773 was subsequently sold to the United Stated and today it is part of the Mullin Automotive Museum collection.
