This is a rare pre-war beauty: A Peugeot 202, built in 1939, which makes it an early model.According to the chassis number, it would be one of the first 5,000 of its kind. What is most amazing about this example is that it comes with complete history and is according to its previous owner in an unrestored original condition with contemporary adaptions regarding indicators and rear lights.
The car was reportedly driven by a lady from the Paris surroundings for 20 years, then passed on to her nephew who only got it out of its garage on a day registration once a year. The previous owner bought it in France in 1996, obtained historic plates and maintained it appropriately, carefully preserving the valuable interior with its original upholstery and art-deco seat covers.
Rear window shades with “remote control”, sun visors and roof rack (currently detached) are among the features of this vintage car.
The over 75 year old Peugeot bears scratches, dents and traces of use which the previous owner deliberately left untouched, as they add to the charming patina of this historic vehicle. By the way, people unfamiliar with this car wouldn’t even be able to start the engine, since the 202 is devoid of an ignition lock.
There are only about 200 of these cars left, so it will be next to impossible to find another in a similar condition to this one!
