I'm afraid this is not the C & W Aigle 8, but the Chenard Walker Mistral. (only equipped with a Aigle 8 engine)
The body was designed by aviation engineer Pierre Mauboussin.

The Aigle 8 looks like that:

Tx for the information. Was a coachbuilder involved in building the body or was it an in-house job?

The body was built by the bureau d'étude, something like a research office, of Pierre Mauboussin.
