French Woodies - Before 1910

1893 Peugeot Type 8 Phaétonnet
- Deux cylindres en V "Daimler-Panhard", allumage à incandescence
- Carrosserie Valentigney ou Beaulieu
- 1282 cm3, 3 CV
La production de ce véhicule s'est intensifiée rapidement grâce à la diversité des carrosseries. De plus, Peugeot avait acquis de l'expérience dans les cycles, ce qui constitua un atout majeur pour cette voiture en matière de confort.

1904 Aster 16/20 For the times, this was a powerful four cylinder car, produced in France by a firm known principally for their engines.  Notable is the highly desirable polished, steam bent, mahogany coach work, of a demi-limousine type. The windscreen and side screens allow the driver and passenger to say dry and slightly warmer than their counterparts with open coachwork

1904 Daracq 'Genevieve' 1904 Daracq wooden body

1904 Darracq 'Genevieve' was used in the 1953 movie of the same name about the London-Brighton run. The film is credited with fostering interest in veteran car restoration. The car recently participated in the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain 1,000 Mile Trial Centennial. Just how much of the bodywork is wood is apparent in the photo taken during restoration.
