Engine/Mechanical Component Photos
This car made a bold statement at the 1937 Auto Show held at the Grand Central Palace. This is the prototype car of the style #9220 known as Goutte du Eau - 'Teardrop.' It is considered by many as one of the most iconic shapes in the Automotive French Art Deco era. The Fagoni & Falaschi style is flamboyant, yet elegant. Their use of wild and bright colors made their cars very popular among the participants in early French Concours d'Elegance events.
There are believed to be approximately ten type 9220 Goutte du Eau coupes built between 1937 and 1938. These are high performance sports coupes, built to rival any of the world's great cars.
This example is the only known aluminum body and fender car built. The car spent its early life in France and Switzerland. It was relocated stateside in 2000. The restoration was completed in 2011.
