too bad for the loud music: I'd rather heard the 54's song

and Herman's video had no sound in 2008

What a beautiful car the Hampton T54 is.I seem to remember that Peter had loads more instruments on the dashboard,all made new by John Marks to match the originals but with things like water temp/oil temp/amps/and maybe boost as well ! This must then be a new dash panel. [?]

From my site, 2005 (When Olav Glasius bought 54201):
July 4, 2005

More on the Bugatti T54 recently sold to a Dutch collector

Ch.nr.54201 was the first T54 , factory racer for Archille Varzi. After a year it was sold as new to Prince Jiri Lobcowicz in Czechoslowakia. (This prince had owned a T35, and still owned a T51)

At his first race on Avus Berlin he crashed in the first curve, and was killed. The T54 was given, together with the T51 to his friend Zdenek Pohl, who put the car back in order, and also raced it. After a few years Pohl had a a new roadster body for the car made by O.Uhlik.

In 1970 the car was sold to Peter Hampton in England, who had the roadster body removed. (The roadster body ended up in the USA with Peter Mullin, and was put on a T55 chassis by Ray Jones)

Peel made a new GP body, as far as known from the scuttle onward. Crostwaithe and Gardiner technically restored the car, and renewed the dashboard as it had the wrong holes.
