1929 Peugeot 201 10hp Saloon
Chassis no. 315932
Announced in 1929, Peugeot’s new 201 was a 10hp car powered by 1,122cc sidevalve engine driving via a three-speed gearbox with worm drive rear axle. It was aimed very much at the new motorist and in mainland Europe sought the same market that in the UK was contested by 10hp models from Austin and Morris.
This extremely pretty four door, four light saloon is finished in blue and black with black leather top, boasts quintessentially French disc wheels and is left-hand drive. It appears to be original in all major respects, featuring a steel luggage trunk to the rear and a spare wheel to the rear of that, with elegant rear quarter bumpers. The interior is cloth trimmed and the dashboard instrumentation is all correct. The car has Ducellier Tricode head/side lamps and a period Scintilla-style parking lamp. It was found in Bordeaux in the early 1970s and driven to St Malo prior to exhibition in the Jersey Motor Museum. The vehicle is offered with papers recording importation from France together with an old-style Jersey logbook and VRD 1. Purchased by the vendor at Bonhams’ auction at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu in September 2002, the car has not been used since and will require careful re-commissioning following its lengthy period of museum storage. Offered without reserve.
