Installation view.


OXNARD, CA.- The Mullin Automotive Museum revealed that the “crown jewels” of its collection have returned to the museum as part of its exhibit, which debuted to the public on Saturday, April 14. Entitled “L’époque des Carrossiers: The Art and Times of the French Coachbuilders,” this new display showcases the finest and most renowned sculpture, artifacts and vehicles from the Mullin Museum’s permanent collection, each representing the skill and unparalleled craftsmanship of the most esteemed French master coachbuilders.

The Era of Coachbuilding was marked by elegantly-designed and hand-crafted automobile bodies that were commissioned by society’s most prominent members, using artisans and visionaries to craft bespoke works of rolling art. “L’époque des Carrossiers” explores the greatest vehicles of this genre, highlighting the works of preeminent French builders such as Bugatti, Citroen, De Villars, Figoni and Falaschi, Henri Chapron, Henri Labourdette, Million, Guiet & Cie., Pourtout, Jacques Saoutchik, Vanvooren, and Gabriel Voisin.

This exhibit marks the return of some of the museum’s most lauded vehicles. Guests will instantly recognize the 2018 “Best of the Best” winner—the 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, which was designed by Jean Bugatti, as well as the 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS ‘Goutte d'Eau' (teardrop). The teardrop, which joined the exhibit in October, was designed by Joseph Figoni and was named “Best of the Best” in 2016.

In addition to this prize of the Mullin collection, museum patrons will find other Concours-winning vehicles such as the 1938 Dubonnet Hispano-Suiza H6B “Xenia” by Jacques Saoutchik, the revolutionary 1934 Voisin Type C27 Aérosport Coupe, the 1939 Delahaye Type 165 Cabriolet by Figoni and Falaschi, and many more.

“Our new exhibit will showcase the sublime beauty and artistry of France’s finest coachbuilt cars,” said Peter Mullin, founder and CEO of the Mullin Automotive Museum. “The display highlights the nuanced details and elegant craftsmanship that define and distinguish each of the coachbuilders from one another. The elegant cars paired with their rich and diverse stories will create a captivating educational experience on the coachbuilt genre.”
