Willam Fourgonnette-1978

LAWIL was Italy’s primary Microcar made in the 1970s.  The LAWIL sold better in France where it was called the Willam.  These small cars were powered by a 125cc or 175cc Lambretta scooter motor.  This car was popular in France because it could be driven by people who did not have a driver’s license.  M. H. Willam was the French importer of Lambretta scooters and the name of the company, LAWIL, came from a combination of the names Lambretta and Willam.  LAWIL initially built a 2-seater Microcar that was much smaller than the Fourgonette seen here.  The company quickly realized a small delivery van would be very practical in many congested European cities.
