The Peter Mullin Automotive Museum Foundation is implementing a project that is very interesting. They are trying to complete work on an unfinished 1939 Bugatti Type 64 Coupe. Is it possible?
The board of Peter Mullin Automotive Museum Foundation had already had the engine and chassis from 1939 Bugatti Type 64 Coupe. They work with students at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California to realize the dream of Jean Bugatti.
In fact, the Peter Mullin Automotive Museum Foundation has appointed Automobile Metal Shaping Co., a Michigan company to produce its body. The museum which is famous for its collection of some of the most Desirable cars on earth is apparently serious in progress of 1939 Bugatti Type 64 Coupe.
“AMS is known among top collectors and manufacturers for their extraordinary work with exceptional cars. Similar to the Type 64, Mike Kleeves and his team at AMS have one foot in the past and one foot in the future,” said Peter Mullin, the museum foundation’s board chairman.
1939 Bugatti Type 64 Coupe is the car which was designed by Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of the founder of Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti. Unfortunately, he could not continue his work after he died while testing a Type 57 C. 1939 Bugatti Type 64 finally began to be forgotten and never again be heard. However, the effort of Peter Mullin Automotive Museum Foundation to complete the car will make Jean Bugatti smiled in heaven.
