Peugeot Car/Truck Body Parts
One of the oldest thriving businesses in the car world, the Peugeot French car brand has been around since 1889. And ironical in the world of the automobile, the same family, the Peugeot's, still control the independent French motor manufacturer. Years before diving into the auto industry, Armand Peugeot, dabbled in the bicycle market. And even today, the Peugeot name is synonymous with exceptional bicycles, as well as vehicles.
For several years, the Peugeot auto manufacturers used an engine provided by the famous Daimler auto group, but in 1896, the Peugeot Company began developing their own petrol-fueled internal combustion engine. As well, the Peugeot moved the engine under a hood and added a steering wheel.
Early innovations proved very profitable for the Peugeot Company, in 1913, a Peugeot driven by Jules Goux won the Indianapolis 500, a phenomenal feat for the French automobile. The Peugeot Company became known across the world, naming their cars or rather numbering their cars, the Peugeot 201 was produced in 1929, the thirties saw production for the 202,302, and 402. Many other number named models were introduced over the next decade and continue in present day.
US sales were somewhat obsolete in the late eighties and early nineties and as a result, the company pulled their line from the US market and concentrated on the European car arena. The Peugeot continues to wow audiences throughout the world with their racing ability. Throughout the nineties and well into the twenty-first century, the Peugeot still continues to race, winning the Le Mans in both 1992 and 1993; the company has also been involved in providing engines to the Formula One Teams in the last few years.
One of the last Peugeot's sold in the United States was the 505. This full-size automobile was praised for its overall handling and ride, especially on those rocky and un-paved roads. Many rural and undeveloped countries still buy the Peugeot's for this reason. Variations of the 505 included the sedan, the station wagon, and the large family estate model, which featured eight seats.
