Description

French title
Chassis n ° 1120880

- Extremely neat restoration
- "Small rear windscreen" and Luxe Export model
- Rare wooden steering wheel
- No reserve

Sold new in Switzerland, in Lausanne, this Peugeot 203 is a rare Luxe Export version. Moreover, it is one of the oldest examples of this famous French sedan, since it left the factor on the production's first year, and it still has the "small rear windscreen" which is particularly sought after by collectors today.
Purchased in 2012 by the previous owner, a French collector of Peugeots, it was then a car wreck. It thus needed a comprehensive and elaborate restoration, which was done, leaving nothing to chance. The underbody has been replaced and all the mechanicals have been redone, including suspensions, brakes and electricals. Inside, the upholstery has been completely redone in a light beige leather and the car is equipped with a very rare wooden steering wheel, an original Peugeot accessory of the period. A restoration folder contains almost a hundred photographs which show the magnitude of the work carried out.
Today, this car is in an impeccable condition, in its beautiful light beige color and its welcoming interior. An interesting and well-documented this car has covered only 200 km since its restoration, and is ready to take its future owner for a peaceful drive under the sun thanks to its lovely sunroof.
