Description

Lawil Willam Lambretta S3 Postman 1976

History
The history of Lawil S.P.A begins in Pavia, Italy in 1967 where Henri Willame along with the automobile designer Carlo Lavezzari were set to create small vehicles using Lambretta parts and engines. LAvezzari + WILlame (Lawil would be the partnership between the two gentleman).

M. Willam was president of Lambretta France, his connections allowing him to create a large microcar empire in France in the next two decades. Willam was basically a marketing label for a variety of foreign-made vehicles to be sold in France. As head of Lambretta S.A.F.D. in Levallois-Peret, M.H. Willam first presented Lambretta-engined prototypes at the Paris Salon in 1966, which were actually manufactured by Scattolini in Italy.In 1967, he formed an alliance with Lawil (which is surely a contraction of Lambretta and Willam) of Italy, which produced a range of microcars sold in France under the names Willam City and Wilam Farmer. It would appear their main selling point was you didn’t need a proper driving licence to drive one.
