    The black coupe on the dark marble floors sits in the Blackhawk Automotive Museum in Danville, California. The chassis used to promote the company is also there. The Bucciali brothers were asking 20,000 dollars for their cars in 1930. They were front wheel drive vehicles. Very few cars were ever made by them. Some claim there are fake Bucciali cars out there. Made during a time when Classic Era cars were a hot item. Kind of like the fake Bugatti 35bs. Considering how poorly records were kept, it can be hard to prove what is real and what is fake.

    The white Bucciali is a replica apparently.

    Sleeve valve double straight 8 engine (two crankshafts that is) and front wheel drive. Bucciali's were made in France from 1922-1933 and were also know as "Bucs" early on. Very fast and almost underslung in design, they were very expensive, but not very popular.

    I wouldn't call the white one a fake.
    Its a replica built by a dedicated fan of the Bucciali and he didn't ever pretend that it was anything other than that

    I have , for many years, a model in my collection of the double huit
    Truly a magnificant car albeit a bit big

    I can remember an interesting tale of a Bucciali beiing (re)discovered in Monaco , many years ago.
    Quite a find....

    Can you shed some light as to what the measurements of the car are?
