The Peugeot 202 was the smallest car made by Peugeot in the pre-WWII era. It had a very stylish and somewhat streamlined body, and sales were very good, with over 100,000 cars produced in its 7-year production life. Another unique feature is that the headlights are set behind the radiator grill to give the body a more clean appearance. Early 202s had cable brakes, but by 1946 the cars were equipped with hydraulic brakes.
This particular model has a large convertible top, and the model was known as the Berline Decouvrable.
This example was previously owned by legendary Finnish folk singer Esko Rahkonen. The wheels on this car are prototype Michelin Pilote wheels, which have large amounts of diagonal bracing to accommodate the larger side loads expected with the new (at the time) Michelin X radial tires.
