I thought I'd start a topic about the Peugeot Quadrilette, a economy car introduced by Peugeot in 1921. The first model was the "161" which, in 1921, was crank start with acetylene headlamps. In 1922, they switched to electric starter and headlights. I'm currently working on a model 161. Here is an interesting photograph of a Quadrilette 172. My guess: a salesman calling at an export house in Paris. The signs are, I think, American department stores. The sign on the little trailer says "Manufacturer of Leather Goods, Italian and French."

Here is my 1921 Peugeot 161 Quadrilette last year at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia. It was assembled but not running then, but I'm preparing it for the road now.
