1935 Bugatti 59/50s comes back to life since the late 30's

Here is some photos of my fathers Bugatti 59/50s that i would like to share as we have completed a complete restoration.
we will be displaying the Bugatti at Laguna Seca track Wednesday Thursday and Saturday and The Quail car show Friday during the week of Pebble Beach. I am preparing to market this for my father.

Gorgeous French Racing Bleu car, what is the oval metallic item that sticks up out of the bodywork just forward and to one side of the driver? It looks like four pieces of metal.....

The Bugatti was put together for static display and just recently i did the ground up restoration and documented every number and part 1000's of photos to fully expose exactly what the Bugatti is made out of currently. And now is a running machine!

Yes that was us! Thanks. and as far as the other picture you posted i am familiar with it and it resides in England and once was owned by my father then the new owner built a body resembling the original Benoist car but was later scraped and then a new correct body was built on the number 15 chassis
