We are super excited to have this amazing car in our shop. Here is a little bit of information from Wikipedia: De Dion-Bouton was a French automobile manufacturer and railcar manufacturer operating from 1883 to 1932. The company was founded by the Marquis Jules-Albert de Dion, Georges Bouton (1847–1938) and his brother-in-law Charles Trépardoux.
The company was formed after de Dion in 1881 saw a toy locomotive in a store window and inquired about the toymakers, to build another. Engineers Bouton and Trépardoux had been making a starvation-living on scientific toys at a shop in the Passage de Léon, close to the “rue de la Chapelle” in Paris.Trépardoux had long dreamed of building a steam car, but neither could afford it. De Dion, already inspired by steam (though in the form of rail locomotives) and with plenty of money, agreed, and De Dion, Bouton et Trépardoux was formed in Paris in 1883. This became the de Dion-Bouton automobile company, the world’s largest automobile manufacturer for a time, becoming well known for their quality, reliability, and durability.

This car will get a new interior. Jean-Noel is an expert on antique car restorations having done quite a few in his career.
Front seats are next.
We have a new project! A 1933 SS1 4 light saloon. Jaguar was founded as the Swallow Sidecar Company by Sir William Lyons in 1922, originally making motorcycle sidecars before evolving into passenger cars. The name was changed to Jaguar after WWII to avoid the unfavorable connotations of the SS initials.
JNG Creations can service your needs for any antique car you own. Below is a custom top and trunk cover custom created for a 1929 Packard Convertible Coupe. Custom tops for antique cars need to be made from scratch and Jean-Noel is an expert. Needless to say this customer was extremely happy with the job.
Karl said: ”The final product (the convertible top) is truly beautiful and artistic which compliments the rest of the finished automobile, a 1929 Packard Convertible Coupe.
Additional work on the boot (cover when the top is down), a trunk cover, and an antique tool roll, were equally executed professionally and artistically.
I most highly recommend Jean-Noel Greffeuille for all phases of upholstery, convertible tops and accessories for installation on the most modest automobile. It has been a pleasure to work with Jean-Noel.”
