This very unusual left hand drive French cyclecar has been the subject of a substantial restoration over the last ten years and is for sale due to the arrival of another project.

It has a three cylinder air cooled radial four stroke 740cc engine with direct friction drive. The four speed gear change and reverse is achieved by tilting the whole engine in the chassis!

The fabric bodywork has been rebuilt and the headlamps restored. The electrics have been installed with a small motorcycle type battery. The wheels have been rebuilt with five new beaded edge tyres.

The hood frame and hood have been completely rebuilt and the magneto overhauled. New valves and guides have been fitted to the engine.

The car comes with a massive history file and a large quantity of spare parts.
It is UK registered with a current V5.
