1959 Peugeot 203c: Conventional French

1959 Peugeot 203c

When I think of French cars, I typically think of tiny cars with odd angles and quirky looks, but when I saw this Peugeot that Mike H found here on eBay, I was surprised by how conventional it actually looks. If you didn’t know better, you might even mistake it for a ’50s American built classic. Of course once you start to study it closely, you can tell it wasn’t built on our shores, but it will surely create a stir at local car shows! And if the looks don’t cause some interest, this car’s history should! It has traveled all over the globe, from Sri Lanka to Kenya and then somehow to Virginia! The seller has done a lot to this car to get it running and safe to drive, but they have decided it’s time to find a new project. They have started bidding at the odd amount of $4,826.12. Special thanks to Mike for the tip!

Just based on the seller’s description, you can tell they have become quite passionate about this little car. And while their listing isn’t perfect, they do a good job of describing the car and what’s been done to it. It sounds to me like they had to get creative when it came to sourcing new parts, but I doubt you can go to your local parts store and get much of anything for it. They have a Peugeot 403 parts car, which they are willing to include if the next owner wants it, and lots of other spares. Hopefully the seller will put the new owner in touch with their parts suppliers, as that would make keeping it on the road much easier. Knowing some French might also come in handy, as I doubt there are many shop manuals for it around in English. Even with all these potential stumbling blocks, it sounds like this car would be a fun challenge with the reward being all the smiles it brings! So would you give this American looking Frenchie a home in your garage?
