1902 Rochet 4 1/2hp Vis a Vis


car description

Chassis number: 1369 Registration number: BS8229 Engine Number: 2627 A particularly pretty & attractive early Paris built Vis a Vis style car. Being of 1902 origin it will be a reasonably early starter at about number 100 on the London to Brighton run which it has completed on a number of occasions. Smartly presented in red livery with black body mouldings and fine red coachlining and furnished with buttoned red upholstery and equipped with nickel fittings. The vis-à-vis coachwork bears the plate of Bergeon & Cie, Carrossiers of Bordeaux. The car is equipped with a practical hood useful on those occasional wet drives down the A23 and this has recently been re-covered. Driving equipment includes also a double-twist bulb horn and oil side lamps. BS 8229 has been VCC dated and carries a dating plate for Certificate no.2240, issued in November 1998. Driving is simplicity itself, the 80 x 90mm, 452cc Aster engine, driving through the two-speed Bozier gearbox. Originality has been carefully maintained in all major respects although a discreet electric water pump has been fitted for convenience. The car has previously been owned by the present Chairman of the Veteran Car Club of Great Bri
