Bugatti Brochures and Memorabilia
19?? Photograph - Vincent Junek with Bugatti T 32 Tank 4059.
This is a photograph of Vincent Junek (husband of Elisabeth Junek) tinkering with their Bugatti Type 32 "Tank" (Chassis 4059), presumably in pre-war Prague (CS).
The Juneks acquired the car in the 1920's but unfortunately, the car has gone missing in the mists of time...
This is most probably NOT a vintage photo (i.e. printed shortly after the picture was taken) but it is definitely "older" and printed on fiber-based paper (1970's? 1980's?).
It measures some 15 x 10 cm or 6 x 4 inches.
Only 1 pc. available of course.

1929 Bugatti Type 46 "Quick Start" Instruction Sheet.
Here we have a vintage October 1929 "quick start" sheet for the Bugatti T46 3 Liter cars.
It is not very elaborate but gives simple instructions on how to operate and maintain the Type 46 chassis.
It mentions fuel, lubrication, spark plugs, tires etc.
It looks like it was an insert for the extended owners manual and aimed at those who didn't want to go through the whole manual before taking their new Bugatti to the road. Kind of like what we find nowadays with electronics.
The sheet measures some 14 x 22.5 cm (5.5 x 8.9 inches) and opens up to 28 x 22.5 cm ( 11 x 8.9 inches) with 3 pages of text.
We offer FREE shipping to ANY destination in the world on this item but, given its value, we advise you to take the optional insurance (available at check-out) on it.

1935 Bugatti Type 57 Bodywork Print - Antem Cabriolet - Chassis 57200.
A great vintage item from Carrosserie Jean Antem!
This print was issued in 1935 by the paint supplier of Carrosserie Antem, Nitrolac.
Most probably this was used to demonstrate the proposed color-scheme for their then-recent design as executed on Bugatti T57, chassis number 57200.
The proposed colors were called "Noir Iris" and "Rouge d'Armagnac".
We only know of 2 contemporary photographs of # 57200 and there it LOOKS to be all black but then again, it is difficult to judge from b&w pictures.
An ultra rare item on a one-off car!
The print measures some 12 x 8.5 inches or 30 x 20.5 cm.

This history of the Bugatti family told by Ettore’s first daughter is particularly moving and interesting.
