Hotchkiss 686 GS DHC by Park Ward 1936
2019 Antwerp Concours - Wijnegem (B)

Despite the English name Hotchkiss was a traditional French manufacturer of quality cars. The 686 Grand Sport, also known as the 20 CV, was their top-of-the-range model in 1936. It was powered by a 3.5 liter 6-cylinder engine producing up to 130 horsepower. What makes the car shown here unique is the British drophead coupe body by Park Ward fitted on the French chassis.
