Pourtout?

As a make?

I never heard of that!

To my knowledge it was the coach-builder Marcel Pourtout who's name, Carrosserie Pourtout, is often used as part of a car name:

Not a make of course but a "Couturier de l' Automobile". After WW2 they did many bodycoach on french buses

So it was you, Jean-Marc. I was wondering who entered this car. We could add "Pictures for this movie will be provided by: sixcyl". :D

This car realised on a Peugeot 601 chassis by Pourtout for the film director Marcel Pagnol. This extraordinary 6 cylinder car has a retractable metal roof designed, like the body by Georges Paulin. The rectractable roof, nowadays very fashion is a 1931 Georges Paulin patent

Difficult to find rarer car! only one made... for Marcel Pagnol, himself (as Bref already has mentionned).
Around 60 years before the contemporary Peugeo 206 CC, 306 CC, Renault Mégane Coupé Cabriolet, Opel Tigra or VW Golf...
The bumpers have been modified compared with the first shot of this exceptionnal vehicle,... an UFO in 1935 ! :D

Petites précisions supplémentaires sur cette magnifique voiture:
Si elle a bien été achetée par Marcel Pagnol, ce fut pour l'offrir à Josette Day, sa compagne du moment, avec qui il se mariera puis divorcera plus tard.
Son numéro de série est 72 7005.
Cette auto existe encore... :) Elle est la propriété d'un loueur de voitures pour le cinéma qui attend la création d'un musée "Marcel Pagnol" pour la restaurer et la présenter au public.
