1925 Peugeot Type 177B news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 57089
Engine Num: 58999
By the 1920s, Peugeot was producing a variety of passenger cars and commercial vehicles. In the native language, commercial vehicles were known as camions and a smaller version, the camionette. It translated to 'little truck' or 'truckette', and was an integral part of French culture. These were small utility vehicles based on, or converted from, a passenger car. Most were made by grafting a wood cargo box to the back of a car chassis.
This Type 177B Camionette was on display during the 1970s at the Musee d'Automoibles du Flores, at Sury-le-Comtal in the Loire department of east central France.
This vehicle is mostly original and painted in maroon with black fenders and a beige canvas top and rear side curtains. The engine is a 1525cc L-head four-cylinder unit mated to a four-speed manual transmission and two-wheel mechanical brakes.
In 2009, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $15,000 - $20,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $12,100,including buyer's premium.
