Peugeot 156 25 HP Torpedo 1923

This Peugeot 156 was sold at Arcurial Auction during the 2015 Retromobile in Paris.
Just 180 examples of the Peugeot 156, presented in 1920, were built between 1921 and 1923. It was fitted with a remarkable six-cylinder sleeve-valve (Schmid patent) engine of almost 6-litres, that enabled the car to reach an honorable speed of over 90 km/h (56 mph). It is interesting to note that this model was used by the French President of the Republic, Alexandre Millerand. 

The example presented, equipped with a torpedo body, featured a handbrake outside the body and a long axle, which may have led the Peugeot museum, according to the owner, to consider that this car was destined to be used for racing. There is another feature that suggests this vocation: the mounting of optional front brakes. Delivered new in the Bordeaux region in 1923, and then sold in the Agen area in 1936, this automobile was hidden during the Second World War in a château in Les Landes. It was recovered by the well-known collector Jean Piquemal, who began its restoration, which was completed by the current owner, who bought the car in 1996. A complete mechanical overhaul was carried out by the excellent RMA workshop, in Trégastel. This car was sold for 119.200Euros.
