Peugeot-Quadrillette_2.jpg

Peugeot produced the 'Quadrillette' in various forms between 1921 and 1924. Intitially the Type 161 was so narrow that the two seats were placed in tandem rather than side-by-side and it was for this reason the cars were nicknamed 'Quadrilettes.' Cycle cars were produced to cater for motoring on a budget. Not only were they cheap to produce and therefore purchase but they pften fell into different road tax brackets. Also with less than 700cc to play with the fuel consumption was understandably low. Despite being a car for the budget motorists cycle cars not only from Peugeot but all sorts of lesser known companies have become hugely collectible today. 

This car came to us for a mechanical overhaul and some engine work so that it can take part on VSCC light car events.
