Footnotes

  • Peugeot were pioneers in the French motor industry entering the motor car business in 1889 from a family engineering business which embraced the manufacture of tools, coffee mills and corsetry. Light car production got seriously under way with the Bébé of 1912 which was designed by Ettore Bugatti and this was the lineal ancestor of the Quadrilette and the Peugeot 172 which first saw the light of day for the 1923 season.

    Peugeot vied with both Citroen and Renault for a slice of the small car and utility market, their Charette Normande catering for both aspects and appealing to the small businessman and particularly the farming/market gardening fraternity, providing an ideal means of transport for both pleasure motoring and carrying goods to market. This is a particularly nice example, quintessentially French in every respect, and arguably amongst the first ‘mini-pick-ups’ produced. This vehicle has survived in largely original condition and was MoT tested some 18 months ago and has been dry-stored since. The vehicle spent many years with a German collector where it was used for shows but now comes from British enthusiast ownership. It is offered with a copy of the original owner’s manual and a Swansea registration document and is presented in red livery with brown leather interior.
