Footnotes

  • The Peugeot is the French car that still maintains its excellence and is the only firm of long-standing repute still manufacturing two-cylinder engined cars and with a range of models from 8 hp to 50 hp ... it is made apparent that the Peugeot cars are fully worthy of the high place they have taken in the motor world." - Max Pemberton. The Amateur Motorist, 1907.

    Formerly producers of tools, coffee mills, umbrella spikes and corsetry, Peugeot commenced its long-standing connection with transport in 1885 when it added cycle manufacture to its portfolio. Amongst the world's oldest surviving motor manufacturers, the company commenced car production in 1889 with a steam-powered tri-car but soon abandoned steam in favour of the internal combustion engine, building a succession of ever larger automobiles before introducing the first of its famous Bébé light cars in 1900. Step by step Peugeot modernised its designs, adopting the steering wheel in 1901 on the Type 36 and front-mounted engines on all its new models in 1902. From that time forward Peugeot unashamedly copied the Mercedes style in miniature, adopting square-cut honeycomb radiators and reinforced timber chassis; even the twin-cylinder 9hp had mechanically-operated inlet valves in a pair-cast 'T-head' engine. Peugeot produced singles, twins and four-cylinder cars at this time, some with chain and others with shaft drive, the latter becoming universal after 1909.

    Built at Peugeot's Audincourt factory in north-eastern France, this 10/12hp model was purchased from a Mr John Wilkins and brought over to England in the early 1970s as a rolling chassis (see photographs and correspondence on file). The car was subsequently restored by Graham Wilde and Peter Howarth, with any new parts required being made from the original Peugeot drawings from 1904. The new body is painted green and the interior is upholstered in red leather. First registered in the UK on 1st February 1974 with Peter Howarth as the registered owner, the Peugeot was certified by the VCC dating committee on 3rd April 1974 (certificate number '1373').

    The twin-cylinder engine displaces 1,817cc and is rated at 10/12hp. The car retains the original dual ignition system, while the gearbox has four speeds plus reverse. The drive from the engine to the gearbox is via a cone clutch and the drive from the gearbox to the rear wheels is by means of twin chains. The pedal control layout is as current-day manual cars. Braking is by a foot-operated transmission brake and a lever-operated rear-wheel handbrake. Drip-feed oiling to both engine and gearbox is supplied by an engine-driven Dubrule system. An auxiliary engine and gearbox oil 'top up' system is operated by a hand pump.

    In the present ownership the car has been kept in a heated garage within a Carcoon bubble. It is regularly maintained by the owner, while any major works have been carried out by N P Veteran Engineering (see bills on file). Significant works carried out in the past eight years or so include the following:

    2007. Refurbish and repack water pump. Repair radiator leak (£1,500). New engine cylinder

    2008. liners, pistons and piston rings. New transmission brake drum (£11,000). Relined clutch (£2,000). Relined rear brakes. Re-seat engine valves and make new valve springs (£2,500).

    The then owner/restorer entered his first Brighton-to-Brighton Run in 1974, and it is understood that he and his son did the Run regularly until the car was sold in 1994. The current owner purchased the Peugeot in March 1994 through Smallbone Vintage Vehicles, Birmingham.

    The owner's family has entered the car in the London-to-Brighton Run regularly since purchase. They are a large family - three children with partners and 10 grandchildren - so competition for a seat is fierce! Most times the Peugeot carries five occupants of various ages and size, and on a few occasions, even two additional small children! 'LE 7436' has failed to finish on only two occasions: one because of a simple electrical issue (in horrendous rain), the other a medical issue with the driver...! Always greeted with much admiration, the car has also been entered in several local events and shows, principally to demonstrate automotive engineering from 100 years ago.

    Sadly, the vendor has now reached a point where the physical demands of driving and looking after the car are too much. He would love the new owner to get as much fun and enjoyment out of the car as has he and his family.

    Described by the vendor as in excellent condition throughout, this imposing motor car has been entered and accepted as a participant in this year's London-to-Brighton Run on Sunday 7th November. A fully enclosed Brian James Sprint Shuttle trailer, tailored to transport the Peugeot, is available via separate negotiation.
