De Dietrich Bugatti steam conversion drawings

In partial celebration of the final production of Jim Crank's Doble book:

Those with an interest in late-'30s steam experimentation may already know about the De Dietrich conversion of a T50 Bugatti. The De Dietrich foundation has preserved a considerable number of the engineering drawings for this project, and has made them freely available. Pieter Hansma has graciously hosted a copy of the collected files for download here:


This is a zip file, about 56MB, which will decompress to about 62.6MB on disk. The files are TIFFs and were scanned with good quality. Further sharing of these files is authorized if no fee is charged for it; I can provide a contact at De Dietrich for anyone who wants to make the files available on physical media.and needs the appropriate permission to charge for costs.

I hope there are many in this community who will be interested in this material (and are as excited to find it as I am...)
