Hotchkiss Antheor Cabriolet Scale - 1:43

Jean-Albert Grégoire (no connection with Automobiles Grégoire, France) was not only an automobile engineer but also a practical fact-finder who strongly believed that every automobile, however well-built, had scope for improvements. He never formed his own company but worked closely with a few firms and gave his ideas. One was Hotchkiss, who built cars in the first half of the 20th century.

The project to make the Hotchkiss Anjou began at the same time as the Hotchkiss Grégoire model in 1950. A well-built luxury car, the Anjou had a limousine-styled body and gave the customer two engine options, i.e., a 2.3-litre 4-cylinder in-line and a 3.5-litre 6-cylinder. Only 40 units were produced during the years 1951-1954. 

This scale model is a rendition of their 2-door model called the Hotchkiss Anthéor, which was entrusted to coachbuilder Henri Chapron, who built the bodies with two wheelbase variants, 2900 mm and 3090 mm. But the final price of this cabriolet was so expensive that the company built just 40 units before the car brand wound* up.

 

* Hotchkiss facility was diverted to make Jeeps and later trucks
