                                                   Trafford Engineering Automotive Limited Bugatti T-35 (TEAL)
                                                               All Aluminum Body Front Engine Replica

       This is a very rare opportunity to acquire an original right hand drive, aluminum bodied Trafford Engineering Automotive Limited (TEAL) Bugatti T-35 built in the UK by illustrious TEAL builder Bob Jones in 1988.  The TEAL manufactured Bugatti T-35 needs absolutely no introduction in European countries as there is an avid TEAL Club in the UK where collectors buy and sell these incredibly authentic looking Bugatti "tributes" for upwards $80,000 USD.  

       Trafford Engineering Automotive Limited built/replicated Types 35, 43, 44, 52 and 59 Bugatti race cars from 1983 to 1996.  About 200 TEAL Bugatti's of the aforementioned types were completely hand-manufactured at the small Trafford Brake Patricroft, Eccles factory in the United Kingdom originally costing upwards $28,000 for a TEAL fitted with a Triumph or MGB engine and gearbox in the mid-late 1980's.

     Of course, every Bugatti enthusiast is very familiar with the (GRP) glass reinforced plastic or "fiberglass" Bugatti Type 35 roadsters that saturated the affordable American consumer car market beginning in the early 1970's.  But this high quality evocation that I am offering must not be confused with the many fiberglass replicas often found on eBay and other collector forums.

     The TEAL manufactured Bugatti Type 35 replica which have for the past 2-3 years fetched upwards $50K to $80,000 and because of the desirability of the legendary Bugatti marque (peripherally speaking of course), the TEAL manufactured cars have increased in value exponentially in the past several years having seen one very correct and meticulously appointed example offered in Belgium sold recently for $86,000 USD!

                                                                   Details on my TEAL Bugatti Type 35

       This TEAL is powered by a finely tuned uprated B series MGB engine featuring a 12H2709 head with hardened valve seats, Kent springs and upgraded camshaft, chrome-moly push rods, high lift roller rockers, twin HS4 SU carbs, a fuel pressure regulator and archaic push button electronic ignition.  The only upgrades that this highly authentic looking roadster could benefit from are vintage 8” or 10” nickel plated Marchal headlamps; a “weathered or stressed” spare tire three point leather harness and of course the iconic Bugatti steering wheel (I do not like this one) other than these aesthetic upgrades the car is nearly perfect.  The finely tuned vintage four cylinder MGB engine is throaty and very powerful for this 1700 lbs. bullet with a very authentic sound.  This TEAL is properly appointed and none of the accouterments are “over the top” with this car, no unnecessary bells and whistles, just a very beautiful and authentic looking early 20th century “naked” European street legal Bugatti race car.

     There is also included with this sale a complete file with service history and build invoices / receipts plus TEAL mascot and badge.

     This magnificent invocation looks unbelievably authentic and correct from every angle and when I drive up and down Las Vegas Blvd the camera phones are flashing at every side of the street and I ALWAYS get front row parking from the valet at all of the casinos.

      Very few privileged individuals have ever been in the presence of a genuine vintage Bugatti Type 35 and almost no one will think that this is not a $1.5 million automobile.  From every angle this car is correct and looks exactly like the iconic 1927 Bugatti Type 35.  I almost forgot to add that the TEAL manufactured Bugatti's are 35% bigger than the original Molsheim Bugatti race cars. 

      I had the honor of owning an original 1927 Type 35 Bugatti and two full size adults can barely fit upright in the cockpit of the real cars.  The TEAL Bugatti's are very comfortable and imposing.  If you are even remotely considering the acquisition of this rare, very high quality “second generation” Bugatti Type 35 please email with absolutely any inquiries as this car is very exciting to drive, a completely amazing “analog” and archaic driving/motoring experience as you will smell like exhaust after every ride.  Your relationship with the road cannot be more exhilarating and intimate!

     I have partnered with a logistics expert and I can fully arrange global shipping to any port in the world or additionally to your driveway at the buyers expense.  Arab Emirates; Europe, no problem!  I can economically handle all logistics and administration.

     Exciting and unusual trades partial or full (up or down) automotive or otherwise are always considered as my interests are diverse and deep.
