Known History

Presented at the 1926 Motor Show, the B14 brought many changes to the B12, which had preceded it: the chassis was lightened and stiffened, suspension improved, braking made more efficient thanks to a brake booster which acted on all four wheels, while the engine became more flexible. Finally, the bodies were now entirely made of steel.

L'Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS confirmed to us that the car on offer left the factory on 16 October 1926 as a standard "all-steel" torpedo, and that the number on the engine was the original one. The police plate affixed to the dashboard indicates that this automobile was the property of a chief lock keeper of Yonne. The car has benefited from an old restoration, generally well preserved, having obviously not been driven much since. The body is sound and the soft top, with its rear side guards, is in good condition, although the folding mechanism needs to be redone. The rear part offers access to the trunk, in the same way as the commercial versions. The leatherette upholstery has also been restored. The engine is not blocked, but as it has not been used in recent years, it will need a restart and a general overhaul. All five Michelin tyres are in good condition, showing just 10% wear. This unusual torpedo, with its great allure, deserves to join a new collection, which will allow it to find its way back to the beautiful country roads.
