Rare pre-war french sports car. This is one of approximately 1488 examples produced and introduced at the Paris Salon. It is powered by an “M” type 4 cyl. 964 cc “Ruby” motor. This is the Ruby motor which is the “Super Sport” version. About 26 hp w/a top speed of 100 km. per hour in 1935. It is one of the very early front wheel drive cars and has 4 wheel independent suspension.The car weighs 1,455 lbs. Look closely and you will notice the car does not have a drivers door, only a passenger side door. They came from the factory that way. The 3 spd. gearbox is mounted ahead of the engine and the driveshafts that power the front wheels and driven directly off the end of the gearbox. The shift mechanism is very similar to early Citroens. It appears mostly original & runs quite well. It feels more powerful that you would think.
