Lot 410: Terrot Type JSS

Grand Palais Sale, Bonhams (7 February 2013)

The Type JSS was introduced in 1938 and built until 1940 but did not resume production when hostilities ceased. Probably delivered to a dealership in 1940, this example was not first registered until January 1945, at which time the war was still in progress, though by then almost all of France had been liberated. Powered by a 346cc overhead-valve engine driving via a separate four-speed gearbox, the JSS weighed 125kg (275lb) dry and had a claimed top speed of around 120km/h (75mph). An older restoration, this example is fitted with a Dunlop 'Drilastic' saddle but is missing its tank badges and battery. The machine is offered with purchase receipt (1998), correspondence, French Carte Grise normale and copy old CG.
