Automobiles Bucciali was founded in 1922 by brothers Alberto and Paul-Albert Bucciali in Courbevoie, France. Initially manufacturing cyclecars under the name Automobiles Buc, Alberto aspired to build Grand Prix cars and obtained a short-chassis Bignan through engineer Némorin Causan and a racing engine from Ballot in Paris. By 1924, Bucciali had created the B6, which featured tapered aluminum coachwork and a Causan single overhead cam inline six-cylinder engine. The B6 made its debut at the 1925 Montlhéry Grand Prix, but was disqualified due to a failed head gasket. While a Scap four-cylinder engine was installed for further competition, the car was wrecked at the 1927 San Sebastián Grand Prix, leaving an original Causan six-cylinder engine as the only surviving link to the B6 project.

The late collector Uwe Hucke found the original Causan engine at Germain Lambert’s Museum in France in 1982. Additionally, Bucciali historian Christian Huet located an original racing exhaust for the B6. Between 1989 and 2002, Mr. Hucke precisely recreated the Bucciali’s frame and aluminum body aided by factory drawings, which accompany the car. Following its recreation, Josselyne Bucciali and Mr. Hucke’s daughter, Angela, drove the Bucciali in the 1999 French Historic Hill Climb and the Goodwood Festival of Speed. In 2010, the Mullin Collection acquired the Bucciali B6 Recreation and displayed it at the Mullin Automotive Museum. With no original examples of the B6 intact today, this faithful recreation serves to document a part of Bucciali’s early history.
