Peugeot Triporteur- 1949

Peugeot Triporteur- 1949

In 1939, Peugeot introduced their first three-wheeled delivery motorcycle, the “Trimoteur.” It was advertised as “the more economic of the fast means of delivery.” While the rear wheel, seat, and engine appeared as a typical motorcycle, between the front wheels was an open bin that could carry 220 pounds of delivery items. After World War II, people in Europe were desperate for transportation. The car you see here began as a one passenger Trimoteur like the picture above. When the owner decided to transform it into a car, the body was removed and custom coach work was done in metal. Named “Triporteur,” it was approved for use on public roads in 1949 and issued Approval No. 363 cc 86.
