Description: 1908 De Dion Bouton Bi 15/18 HP double phaéton
Carte grise française
Châssis n° 105
Moteur n° 3180

- Restauration exceptionnelle par Lecoq
- Accessoires complets, présentation impeccable
- Exposée au CIA de Pantin

Pour Hervé Ogliastro, la passion automobile couvre de multiple facettes et les voitures très anciennes, les ancêtres, en est une qui lui tient particulièrement à cœur. Ainsi, après avoir acheté cette De Dion Bouton en châssis, il a retrouvé une carrosserie et fait complètement refaire la voiture dans les ateliers d''André Lecoq, où ont été fabriqués plusieurs pièces et panneaux manquants. Plusieurs accessoires ont été retrouvés, dont les éléments d''éclairage (phares BRC à acétylène) et une jolie mascotte 1914 "le policeman" signée Leverier. La restauration a été effectuée dans les règles de l''art en respectant strictement la présentation et les techniques d''époque et, dans sa présentation actuelle, avec sa sobre teinte verte, ses accessoires nickelés, ses instruments de tableau de bord marqués De Dion, son élégante burette d''huile fixée sur l''auvent et son quatre-cylindres bi-bloc, la voiture paraît presque en état d''origine, sans souffrir de l''aspect trop "neuf" qui caractérise souvent les restaurations complètes. Détail intéressant, sur le marchepied gauche on retrouve dans un coffre en bois, un nécessaire à chauffeur avec un réservoir d''eau grâce auquel ce dernier pouvait se nettoyer après une séance de mécanique sur le bord de la route. Les factures de Lecoq jointes au dossier permettent de détailler les travaux réalisés en 1990-1991, et qui totalisent plus de 710 000 francs. Longtemps exposée au sein au CIA de Pantin, elle a été assez peu utilisée ces dernières années.
Il s''agit d''une magnifique représentante d''une des marques ayant profondément marqué l''automobile, au début du siècle refaite avec goût.

Merci de noter que la voiture est vendue sans contrôle technique.

- An exceptional restoration by Lecoq
- Complete set of accessories, in impeccable condition
- Exhibited at the CIA of Pantin

Hervé Ogliastro is a multi-faceted car enthusiast and the veterans are particularly close to his heart. After buying the chassis of this De Dion Bouton, he found a body and decided to completely rebuild the car in the workshops of André Lecoq. Several accessories were found, including the lighting elements (BRC acetylene headlights) and a 1914 mascot "The Policeman" signed by Leverier, and several missing pieces and panels were rebuilt. The restoration strictly respected the presentation and the techniques of the times. In its present condition, with its sober green colour, its nickel-plated accessories, its dashboard instruments marked De Dion, its elegant oil canister fixed on the awning and its four-cylinder twin-block, the car seems almost in original condition, without looking too "new", like total restorations sometimes do. Interesting detail: on the left step there is a wooden box with a driver''s kit, including a water tank allowing to clean after a repair session on the side of the road. The invoices from Lecoq, attached to the file, make it possible to detail the work carried out in 1990 -1991, and which totaled more than 710,000 francs. The car was exhibited at CIA of Pantin next to Paris for a long time and has seen very little use these last years.
It is a magnificent representative of one of the great brands that profoundly marked the beginnings of the automobile, tastefully restored.
