Share on:

Sold for $304,000 at 2006 Bonhams & Butterfields at The Quail Lodge, Resort & Golf Club.
This 1927 Hispano-Suiza H6B Coupe Chauffeur was offered for sale at the 2006 Bonhams & Butterfields auction held at the Quail Lodge in Carmel, California. It has coachwork by D'leteren Freres, a Coupe Chauffeur bodystyle, and was estimated to sell between $290,000 - $320,000.

This car is a right-hand drive that was sold to Lolita Mitchell of Chicago in 1927 from the Hispano-Suiza's Paris Showroom. This car remained in her possession until 1951 when it was sold to industrial designer, Brooks Stevens. Mr. Stevens was the inventor of the pre-selector gearshift and dash-mounted pullout handbrake, among other accomplishments. This car remained in Stevens private museum until 1999, when it was sold to its third owner. It was then treated to a two-year body-off restoration that lasted a total of four-thousand hours. Upon completion of the restoration, it was shown at many events where it was awarded many prestigious awards. It was invited to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2001. It was awarded 'Most Outstanding Interior in Show' at the 2002 Meadowbrook Concours. It was judged 'Best European Touring Car' at the 2003 Greenwich Concours, and a 'Award of Excellence' at the Cranbrook, Michigan Concours in 2003.

The car is believed to have traveled a total of 19,000 miles since new. It is a very original car with excellent coachwork. At auction, the lot was sold for $304,000 which was right in-between the estimated value.
