1924 Peugeot Quadrilette Torpedo
Chassis number: 0006510
Registration number: To be Advised.
This Peugeot 'Quadrilette' was purchased by the current owner in 2008 and treated to an exhaustive 'body-off' restoration at vast expense the following year, as evidenced by invoices on file totaling over €80,000. Works undertaken included a complete overhaul of the engine, transmission and body, and an interior re-trim. A starter motor, alternator and lighting have been added, the latter required to pass the German Tuff test. The car comes with a history file containing a Peugeot 'Type 5 ch' handbook, 'La Quadrilette Peugeot' brochures, two period photographs, sundry restoration invoices and photographs, and German Fahrzeugbrief.
The car needless to say is in utterly stunning condition throughout. The striking teal blue paintwork is set off beautifully by the myriad of polished brass fittings festooned all over the car. The Body finishes trefle style in a delightful \"Cul De Poule\" boats tail which loosely translated is \"chickens Bottom.\"
To the interior is black hide throughout & varnished wood floor boards. A useful mohair hood easily erects to cover proceedings. The hood may be employed fully down, half up or all the way up so I suppose we may accord it the status of a three position drophead. The car is a delight to drive & draws smiles & admiring glances in equal numbers. Under the bonnet the car is beautifully detailed with its fully rebuilt engine firing up instantly & providing good forward motion whilst not overtaxing any speed cameras. At 6ft 3\" I am able to insert myself into it so size is not a barrier to ownership.
A useful luggage rack is fitted to the rear & there is storage behind the two front seats. These cycle cars are delightful contraptions to take down leafy lanes in the summer; to find a better one would be hard. There are a mass of Bills with the car from noted German restorers Fusco Automotive. My limited grasp of German is usually restricted to ordering beer so I am unable to help with translation, but suffice to say they are full & comprehensive.
