Originally purchased by the King of Tunisia, this Amelia-winning 1926 Hispano-Suiza H6B Cabriolet was rebodied by Chapron in 1931 with Cabriolet le Dandy coachwork. According to research done by RM Sotheby’s, this car is also known as the Postman’s Hispano among collectors — a nickname that stuck after the car was previously owned by a mailman from Long Island who drove it for about 30 years.
