Michiel,
You will appreciate I could only take photographs when "riding shotgun".

Great pics Justin! Thanks!

Here is one with our Prime Minister Jan-Peter Balkenende behind the wheel and Evert Louwman in the passenger seat.

I see that Evert still has the VSCC badge on the car. (Vintage Sports Car Club of Victoria).

Michiel,
Even when the car was returned to blue in 1977, the colour was darker and more intense than the original.
I looks as though Evert has had it repainted again and had taken it even further away from the colour it was when we stripped off the red paint.
I would describe the original colour, visible under upholstery and in crevices, as pale baby blue. This was considered "French Blue" at the time [1932]. With the move to Technicolour, French Blue is now considered to be that of the Gitane cigarette packet.

This is a 'modern' Le Mans Replica.
it startet probably as PF Cabriolet, was converted to MM Touring Spider and than to LM Touring Spider. MM Body is now for sale.

Louwmans Car is from 1933, so it couldn't participate with Chiron in the 1932 LM Race.
Biscarettis Car is #2311224
