1952 Peugeot 203 Cabriolet

 

Description

Produced from 1948 to 1960, the Peugeot 203 was not offered for sale in the UK until 1954. Its relatively high price in this country restricted sales, but the car was a familiar sight to British tourists in France where fleets of 203s saw service with the French police. The 203 was powered by a 1,290cc four-cylinder engine of advanced design – incorporating over-square dimensions, overhead valves, hemispherical combustion chambers and wet cylinder liners – that produced 42bhp and drove via a four-speed gearbox with column ‘change. Solidly constructed and possessing exemplary reliability, the tough 203 proved durable enough to win the 1953 Redex 6,500-Mile Trial in Australia and take class wins in the Safari Rally in 1954 and ’59.

Finished in a Green with tanned leather interior, this fantastic example of the most iconic French cars of the post war era is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition throughout. Having undergone a complete nut and bolt restoration 45,000km ago, the car’s fantastic condition is a true testament to how well the car has been looked after by its owner.

De couleur verte avec un intérieur marron, ce fantastique exemple de la plus célèbre des voitures d’après guerre Française est décrite par son vendeur comme étant en excellent état général. Les écrous et les boulons ayant été changés  il y a 45.000 km, l’état fantastique de cette voiture  montre à quel point son propriétaire en a pris soin.
