Veth & Zn. Hotchkiss AM80 Coupe 1928
Veth & Zn. Hotchkiss AM80 Coupe 1928
8.5/10 rating (2 votes)


In 1867, American Benjamin Hotchkiss started a weapon factory in St. Denis, near Paris. Thanks to long periods of peace business did not go well and in 1930 he decided to shift to automobile production. The model in this gallery, an AM 80, is fitted with a 3.0L six cylinder. Most of the AM 80 examples wore factory bodies, but this example was clothed with a coupe body by Veth and Sons. A remarkable item is the rubber bumper made by the Dutch firm of Overman. This bumper was made to absorb impacts up to 40 km/h.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
