1927 Amilcar CGSS roadster - No reserve For Sale by Auction

For sale by auction 13 September 2020 - Collection André Trigano by Artcurial Motorcars

French title
Chassis no. 17716 (according to registration papers)
Engine no. 41045

- Part of the collection since 1973
- A charming little roadster
- Rare CGSS version
- No reserve

Under this Amilcar's calm exterior lies a CGSS model (for Châssis Grand Sport Surbaissé or Lowered Grand Sport Chassis). Several features set it apart from the CGS: a cast aluminium canopy with a box-shaped fuel tank, 232 cm wheelbase and four 260 mm diameter drum brakes ... The car has evidently been modified during its lifetime: its body has a rounded rear section which is wider than the pointed Bordino-style tail on the usual CGSS models. The engine-turned aluminium dashboard has been rebuilt and houses several instruments: a Jaeger speedometer and rev counter, an oil pressure gauge, a Le Nivex fuel gauge and an ammeter …
It was exchanged for a painting in 1973 by Patrice Trigano, the well-known gallery owner and son of André Trigano, who wanted to show his father that he had nothing against old cars! It is presented today just as it was then and has never left the collection. We noted that the hood and manufacturer's plate are missing.
The production run was very limited (984 cars were built from 1927 to 1929, according to Gilles Fournier's book) and few genuine CGSS models have survived, making this an attractive opportunity.

We inform buyers that all the vehicles in the collection have been little used during the last years as they are part of a museum collection. They are sold as presented and therefore require recommissioning before being driven on the public roads.

Estimate: 30 000 - 40 000 €
