Post and discuss all general info about Pourtout here.
You may start new topics on specific cars, projects and makes designed and/or bodied by Pourtout.

The Carrosserie Pourtout was a French coachbuilding company, founded in 1925 by Marcel Pourtout.

The rich and famous bought their chassis from their favorite manufacturers and shipped them to Pourtout for a custom design.
Georges Clémenceau, Prime Minister of France from 1917 to 1920, owned a Pourtout-bodied car.
Up to the outbreak of World War II, Pourtout worked on the top equipment of the day.
Bugatti, Voisin, Ballot, Minerva, Delage, Hispano-Suiza, Delahaye, Delaunay-Belleville, Talbot-Lago, Peugeot and Buick all carried Pourtout bodies.

In 1933, Marcel met Georges Paulin, a dental technician who much preferred working on advanced aerodynamic designs.
In 1935, Darl'Mat, Paulin and Pourtout combined their talents to produce the revolutionary Peugeot 601 Eclipse.

The company still exists today, but they now only focus on car repair.

From the only recognizable parts left (the rear wing, bumper and taillight), a Renault Estafette seems to have being the starting point.
