Engine for 1913/14 Type EL/EM/FH


Engine for 1913/14 Type EL/EM/FH, serial number 14435. Incomplete, missing sump and gears. Offers invited

In August 1913, DDB launched three models they called ‘EL’,  ‘EM’, and ‘FH’ (for the 1914 season). They each had the same 75mm bore x 130mm stroke engine (2296cc), referred to as 14hp or 12/16hp (depending on where it was sold), that was a derivative of the Type DY engine that had been launched at the end of the previous year.

1901 DDB Vis-A-Vis - Ex-Ben Moser

Offered here is one of the best original DeDion Bouton Vis-a-Vis's that has provenance back to when it was new. A very seldom seen American DeDion, assembled in 1901 in Brooklyn, New York, it was sold new in 1901 to a Mr. Percy Stevens of Closter, New Jersey. He kept the car until the 1940's when it was sold to a well known early east coast collector; Dr. Arnold Fisher, also from New Jersey. It would remain with him until we picked the car up from him in the late 1980's for the great collector Mr. Ben Moser of California. Ben kept it in his house in California until his passing in 1992. It then passed to another collector Mr. Martin Button where it stayed for years. It's a wonderful car and it comes with many photos and even Percy Stevens hat that he was wearing in the period photograph driving the car. Mr. Moser was proud of this hat and had it sealed in a frame! Percy Stevens is also pictured sitting in the car later in the 1960's with Dr. Arnold Fisher Jr. The car still retains its original lamps and its original DeDion Brooklyn, New York rubber floor mat. This is the best one we have ever seen. It runs and drives wonderfully and is ready to be a centerpiece in an early car collection or it can be used for the London to Brighton veteran car run. A very incredibly preserved DeDion Motorette.

De Dion Bouton: The Essential Library and Source Book, 1888-1931

This project has been in creation for almost two decades. Published bibliographies of the output of any motor car manufacturer are rare, and this is especially the case in the veteran world, where published material is scattered across a broad range of journals, many of which are scarce or difficult to find. Few bibliographies can claim to be exhaustive and definitive, but this particular volume, a first attempt of abibliography of the De Dion Bouton company, is a comprehensive treatment of the motortricycles, passenger cars andcommercial vehicles that left the factory over the forty years of production.

More than 2,000 known publications and articles from English, French and German sources are included, and presented in chronological order. Each reference has a short commentary on the relevance of the content. For individual car owners or enthusiasts wishing to research a particular Type of vehicle, there are charts of the output of each year, divided into different sections for passenger and commercial vehicles, with a listing of technicalspecifications.In the main body of the text, there is an introduction on the sources available during the period 1888-1931 and their relative importance, as well as a section on the development of the company. Preceding each chapter of references, there is an introductory essay on the historical context and details of the vehicles referenced. Together, the introductions amount to 35,000 words and provide a narrative of the company and its products from the beginning to the end. The appendices include a lengthy consideration of the production volumes and offer guidance on where thequoted sources can be located.

This is a 240-page volume of identical specification to the previousDe Dion Bouton Type andSpecificationseries andThe Tricycle Books.There are more than 200 illustrations in colour and black and whiteof the vehiclesunder review,many of which have not been published previously, along with extracts taken from the company’s catalogues, .

The Essential Library and Source Book will be of value to those interested in the De Dion Bouton marque and to all early motoring enthusiasts curious to learn more about the fluctuating fortunes of the world’s largest engine manufacturer at the turn of the last century, whose contribution had largely been forgotten forty years later.

The print run for this volume will be limited to 300 copies.

Copies can be ordered through the website:; by email (, or by calling +44(0) 7500003926

1921 De Dion Bouton Type IE

1921 Type IE (chassis no. 4261) - Paris 'Town car'

The Type IE, launched in August 1921 with a four cylinder monobloc side valve engine (70mm bore x 120mm stroke) of 10hp was virtually identical to the Type ID of the previosu year, apart from having a 10cm longer wheelbase. With its semi-elliptic supension on the front and cantlilever arrangement to the rear, it followed the pattern of the majority of the 1920s cars.

This particular vehicle was imported into the UK 20 years ago, having had its chassis and mechanical elements restored. Work continued on the sumptuous interior, with its front seats upholstered in claret leather and the rear seats  in a contrasting material of a period design. There are lots of polished wood trims, the doors have window sashes, with fluted trim panels  and bone handles. The centre piece is a polished mahogany unit with a silver topped decanter and 2 cut glasses. The bodywork was restored and painted laret with black wings, colours that were  close to the original. The exterior of the car had the remains of 'Cannage', but lacking the knowledge of this process, simple paintwork was chosen.

Price: £27,000.
