 A 1938 car, sometimes known as a "Grand Sport". The body shape is called "Modane".  It has a 6 cylinder 3.5 litre motor and is of the type that Hotchkiss used to win the Monte Carlo Rally 6 times between 1932 - 1950.

Chairman- Pam Walton
 

Having been invited to join in with several of the ‘Runs’ and ‘Drives’ by my friends and members Peter and Gill Nunn, I finally joined the Club. Four years ago I became a committee member and I like to think that I represent the views of the lady members.

Honorary Secretary - Michael Edwards

 

I acquired my 1912 HOTCHKISS Type AB Limousine AY 2524 in 1998. This beautifully proportioned small limousine is fitted with a body by Hamshaw's of Leicester, who were established in 1865.

The car was first purchased by Capt. Vere Wood, Brixworth Manor, Northamptonshire. Records show that the Road Tax was cancelled in 1923 & reinstated  8th November 1954 when  Mr Kenneth Elder, Seaford Sussex owned and rallied it with the Veteran Car Club. It was hired out and  appeared in  "A woman of Substance" 1984 Mini TV series, "Sorrel and Son" 1984 mini TV series and "Lost Empires" in 1986.

Honorary Treasurer - Sandra Stapleton

 

1938 Monte Carlo. The original body was thrown away by the previous owner because of its poor condition.

The chassis is now shortened to the same length as a Grand Sport Hotchkiss. The bodywork is now a Roadster 2-seater.

Committee Member - Peter Nunn

 

Although Peter been forced to sell his AM2, he is a still full active committee member. 

After 27 years he no longer owns a Hotchkiss car. Heart breaking but Anno Domini has reaped its relentless toll!

This is a picture of one of three 1920s Hotchkiss Peter and Jill have owned during that time.

Committee Member - Barry Stapleton

Australian Representitive - Don Harrington
 

My first Hotchkiss, which I still own, was purchased in 1960 when I was a student. It is a model AM dating from 1925 and has fine original coachwork with a boat tail, built in France by La Carrosserie Nouvelle, Henri Levy. My second Hotchkiss, also an AM and dating from 1924 I recovered, completely dismantled, from a barn in Queensland a few years ago. To my family's bemusement I set about producing a roadworthy vehicle from this heap of rusty junk metal. There were no body parts found with the car, apart from the front mudguards, so I was able to indulge my wish for a car with a polished timber body. I used recycled Kauri Pine which came originally from New Zealand. Just 2910 of the AM model were produced by Hotchkiss et Cie between 1923 and 1925 of which around 15 are known to have survived. Somewhat surprisingly five of these are to be found in Australia.
