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 charming little two-seater, with additional ‘dickey’ seat in the back was bought by the current vendor in France in 2016. He surmised that the car had been the subject of an earlier restoration and on purchasing the car found that no major work was required. Described to be highly original, this charming little car would be an excellent addition to any garage.
