Ray Murray, this car’s second owner, had an Atalante (Chassis No. 57733), which had been exhibited in the French Pavilion at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Period photographs of the Atalante on display exist. Desiring the more powerful supercharged engine in his more exclusive Atalante body, Murray had the two cars’ bodies exchanged for one another, a very acceptable practice in that period.
