*Please note that this vehicle is titled by its engine number. Please also note that Gooding & Company recently obtained copies of Hispano-Suiza factory records, which shed further light on the early history and provenance of this vehicle. Chassis 13016 was originally commissioned for the Goelet family in 1933 with closed coachwork by Labourdette, not Binder coachwork as stated in the catalogue, and was subsequently owned by textile magnate Marcel Boussac in 1936. According to the handwritten notes of Briggs S. Cunningham, archived by the Revs Institute, chassis 13016 was already fitted with the Binder coachwork it wears today when he purchased the vehicle in 1954. The Hispano-Suiza factory records also confirm that engine number 321025 is the vehicle’s original engine. These records are available for review in The Archives or by contacting a Specialist.
