1913 Peugeot Type 143 Raceabout.

Chassis number: 17518

Registration number: BF9077

Immacualtely built up & restored, this Peugeot is in simply pristine & as new condition.  About 300 of which were produced at the French Audincourt plant from 1912 to 1913 making this a rare survivor.  It has been immaculately restored with any regard whatsoever to cost.

The original tired body was discarded & a rakish Jaunty two seat raceabout body constructed upon the original chassis & drive train.  Everything has been rebuilt to as new with the 2 litre 4 cylinder engine putting out about 12HP which is enough to give it decent 40MPH performance on B roads.

Resplendant in yellow with an aluminium bonnet the car elicits smiles wherever it goes.  Literally everything that can be done has been done to this car during the restoration after which it resided in a small museum/collection the owner of which recently passed away.  New wooden artillery wheels have been fabrcated & shod with brand new beaded edge tyres.  The engine is like new having exposed side valve gear in the manner of a Silver Ghost.  A brass Zenith carburettor from the period meters out the fuel mixture.

A looking glass style circular edwardian windscreen is installed for driver protection.  Twin bucket seats clad in buttoned brown leather are mounted high up on the chassis giving one a commanding view of the road.  To the rear is a large motoring trunk for picnics & tools, or just for regular luggage when travelling long distance overnight.  The usual quotient of brass lamps & accessories adorn the various parts of the car.

Huge fun for the money.....this is like a brand new Peugeot being delivered 110 years late!
