Car description from seller:
This car was purchased new by a Swiss businessman. In the late forties, when it had covered 67,000 kilometers, he sold it to a used car dealer who was also the owner of a wrecking yard. The car sat there for almost forty years, indoors and virtually unnoticed and unmolested. Even the original acid-etched glass still adorns the car, marked with the car's chassis number, an exacting detail decades before glass etching became important for security purposes. The third owner, a collector living in south of France, undertook a complete restoration. The Peugeot 402 is a superb road car, a combination of comfort and handling of which only the French seem capable. A standard 402 will cruise all day at the speed limit, equally well whether roads are straight or serpentine. The 402 BL has the 'big block' 2148cc engine, with 151cc more than the standard 402, the resultant torque matching a tall axle ratio for high speed travel. Special touches on the ?clipse include extensive use of cast aluminum parts for body details. The lion mascot that twists to open the grille, for headlight and battery access, is solid aluminum, as are the taillight stanchions, releases for the hood and fender skirts, spare tire hinge and the faux running boards. The car has won about a dozen Concours d'Elegance events throughout Europe. Painted in Wimbledon White with stunning brilliant red leather, it will be welcome in any Concours or touring affair. It should be noted that the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance has not yet had the likes of a Peugeot 402 ?clipse on the lawn, opening great potential for an appearance with this car.Georges Paulin finally received public recognition this June, when a plaque commemorating his life and work was dedicated by the City of Paris. This car, too, is a poignant memorial, in which one can experience Paulin's genius while enjoying a spirited drive.
