We’re used to seeing wood used – both structurally and decoratively – for the bodies of big, prestigious cars, which has the effect of making this 1925 Amilcar CGS3 skiff for sale on Hemmings.com look somewhat larger and more refined than many Amilcars we’ve seen. Bravo to the craftsman who originally built this body and to the people who have had the good sense and ability to maintain it over the years. From the seller’s description:
This particular car was in the Vaud region of Switzerland for 60 years, from 1946 to 2006, before being imported to the United States, where it has been in the eccentric collection of an enthusiast in Southern California. In his care, much work has been performed to bring the car to its current excellent running and driving condition. Included in this was renewing of the paint, refinishing of the wood, renewing the nickel plating on the radiator shell, restoring the wheels, replacing the tubes and tires, rebuilding of the gearbox (including the manufacture of all new gears), restoring the fuel tank, flushing and cleaning the radiator, and renewing the leather upholstery. The car was then shown, and won best in class in two events, the Los Angeles Concours and The Art Center Show in Pasadena.
