Footnotes

  • Société Le Zèbre was founded in Puteaux, Seine in 1909. Its first product was a single-cylinder light car, which was joined in 1912 by a brace of four-cylinder models. Made up to 1917, these designs were not revived after WWI, but instead were replaced by the 997cc four-cylinder Type D, which featured an in-unit gearbox, and electric lighting and starting. Two open tourers were available: two-seat and four-seat, together with a saloon, and with its rounded radiator and wire wheels, the little Type D was undeniably handsome. It was made up to 1923, latterly with a flat radiator.

    This very pretty Type D started life in Brittany and was, apparently, laid up in a barn prior to WW2. It is understood that the owner died during the war. The car was subsequently imported into the UK (in 1976) and was then comprehensively restored by well-known specialists, including Trojan Ltd. It was registered as 'WP 2959' in 1981. A substantial history file documents the painstaking restoration, including a photographic record of the engine and gearbox rebuilds, and also contains handbooks and original technical literature. Boasting a new tonneau cover, the car is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition and comes with a V5 registration document. An ideal entry into VSCC light car events.
