The car drew popularity in the country that saw little auto manufacturing after World War II. In total, there were around 12,000 examples built through 1960.
This example is fully restored and comes from the Bruce Weiner Collection. The body is made entirely from aluminum, offset by a red interior. Power is from a 197cc Hispano-Villiers two-stroke single cylinder engine capable of producing 9 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox and mechanical brakes on transmission and rear wheels.
In 2010, this car was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $10,000 - $15,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $12,100 inclusive of buyer's premium.
