Lot 505: Peugeot 202 Canadienne camionnette bois�e

Grand Palais Sale, Bonhams (7 February 2013)

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. The second oldest motor manufacturer in the world, 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 B�b� light cars in 1900. New for 1939, the Peugeot 202 was powered by a four-cylinder 1,133cc overhead-valve engine coupled to a three-speed synchromesh gearbox with worm drive rear axle. Suspension was independent at the front and the 202 followed the lines of the larger 402, its streamlined styling reflecting the late-1930s preoccupation with passenger-car aerodynamics. A very rare survivor of an already rare model, the Peugeot 202 offered here is an example of the Canadienne 'woodie' estate car variant. It is believed that only 3,000-or-so Canadiennes were built, at the time costing 50% more than the saloon version. Attractively finished in maroon with trademark wooden doors and a beige cloth interior, this largely original example started first time on a recent inspection and is described as in working condition, with solid woodwork. The car is offered with French Carte Grise.
