Announced in 1929, Peugeot’s new 201 was a 10hp car powered by 1,122cc side valve 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 wonderful racing bodied 201 resided in France all its life until 2019 when the current vendor found the car and imported it into Germany. Road registered and with a long TUV, this car has been completely restored. New parts include a radiator, hoses, camshaft bearings, new brakes and an electrical overhaul. The engine has also been restored along with the clutch. Wearing a unique steel racing body, this is a wonderful little pre-war race inspired design and is ready to be enjoyed.
