The final achievement of John Bugatti is now complete and on display at the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, CA. The 1939 Bugatti Type 64 Coupe bounced around between several collections before ending up with Peter Mullin in 2003. Working with Stewart Reed Design and the Art Center College of Design, along with sketches Jean Bugatti made before his death, Mullin commissioned and built its extraordinary bare metal coachwork. The completion of the bodywork is one of Peter Mullin’s proudest achievements: “I cannot imagine a greater token of respect to the Bugatti family than to help finish Jean Bugatti’s beloved final masterpiece.”
