This Bugatti from the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, CA., has such a different look and coach work from what you normally see on so many of these fine cars. It is part of The Schlumpf Reserve Collection, which Peter Mullin purchased most of in 2008. The Schlumpf collection along with the John Shakespeare collection, that this car was in when the Shlumpf’s bought it 1963 in its entirety, are both a story in themselves.
This Bugatti Type 40 Body 'Camionnette', chassis 40485 (engine No. 714), was delivered with an enclosed body by Gangloff to the original owner. A later owner in the 1930’s had that body converted into a “break de chasse” or “shooting break,” which many times was used for hunting.
