Two Frenh brothers, Angelo and Paul-Albert Bucciali, aspired to build the finest cars ever produced. They had been in the aviation industry and entered the automotive field in 1923. They claimed to have built 36 of these front-wheel drive automobiles. The car shown above is thought to be the only original Bucciali in existence.
This dramatic roadster body was crafted by French coachbuilder, Jacques Saoutchik. The elongated stork on the hood sides was the mascot of the famous aviation squadron Groupes des Cigignes (The Storks) that Paul-Albert had flown with during World War I.
