Chassis no. 4350009; Engine no. DX000712. Midnight Blue and Shell Gray over tan leather. 2175/109hp, Robergel wire wheels, Jaeger gauges, dash clock, Radiomatic pushbutton radio, power windows, Marchal fog lights, gold brightwork.

Evaluation: One of just 35 Concordes built by Chapron and one of six from the second series with revised rear fins. Sold new in France and spent most of its life there. Lightly restored in the 1980s. Older paint and brightwork starting to show their age a bit. Very good interior with lightly worn upholstery and switchgear. Unrestored but maintained engine bay. Some dirt, grime, and oxidation underneath. Clean trunk. It would be a fairly straightforward restoration or could be plenty of fun as-is, but either way it’s a very rare and very cool French piece of automotive avant-garde.

Bottom Line: While maybe not ready for a manicured concours lawn, this is a very rare and very stylish coachbuilt coupe, and at this price it’s a lot of car for the money. Especially when you consider that it was a $140,000 no-sale in Monterey in 2019 and then sold for $159,500 at RM Sotheby’s “Shift/Monterey” (another online auction). Not all cars are getting pricier.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
