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.

1903 De Dion-Bouton 6 HP single cylinder Type N

FOR SALE                                                                                        £80,000
1903 De Dion-Bouton 6 HP single cylinder Type N. VCC Dated (4129/2016). A very genuine and original car which has just had a down-to-bare-chassis mechanical restoration and dynastart fitted. The light and pretty French 2 seater body and seat back upholstery appear to be original and are in nicely patinated condition. The lovely flared wings are in correct wood and also appear to be original.
The car was first registered CL142 in Norwich. It subsequently reappeared in poor but complete condition in Sotheby’s 1968 sale of the AWF Smith Collection where it was bought by Dutchman Bram Martini who lightly restored and rallied it extensively during his long ownership including successfully completing 16 Brighton Runs. Following Bram’s death it was repatriated to Suffolk in 2016 and has since completed 2 Brighton Runs, Ellis Journeys, Creepy Crawlies and various VCC rallies. We are charmed by the car and surprised by its spritely performance, but it was obvious that it was worn out mechanically. Peter Carrana rebuilt the 2 speed gearbox with virtually all new internals and KV Engineering in Norfolk rebuilt the rolling chassis and fitted the dynastart. 


The Sotheby’s auction catalogue and most of the Brighton programmes are included in the sale as is a purpose-built 2 wheel trailer with hand winch. We will be sad to see the car go, but funds are needed to complete a long term project.

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: surrendenpress.com; by email (mre01@live.co.uk), or by calling +44(0) 7500003926

Type AV1 Motor cycle - 1925

De Dion Bouton - 98cc AV1 - 1925 

This motor cycle, possibly the only surviving example of the model, was part of a collection for many years, and will require simple re-commissioning and registration before use, but it is complete. 

The model was introduced following the Bicyclette Moteur Auxiliary (BMA) law of 1925 which stated that no licence was required for vehicles with engines less than 100cc, weighing less than 30 kg and a top speed of 30 km/h.

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.

1911 Type CS2 De Dion Bouton Tourer

1911 Type CS2 De Dion Bouton Tourer

Engine no. 6765C; Gearbox no. 26183

The Type CS2 has a 14hp, four-cylinder engine of 2121cc with mechanical valves, a double sleeve sliding pinion, four-speed gearbox, and a pressed steel chassis. It was launched at the Paris Salon at the end of November 1911, and remained in production until the end of the following year. With a price tag of F.Fr 8,100, it was aimed at the higher end of the market, and sold well. An example of this particular model can be found at the Shlumpf Museum in France.

This car was imported from France some years ago, and following a substantial restoration of the open bodied tourer coachwork, has been fastidiously maintained. It starts easily, requires little effort to maintain a steady cruising speed of 40+mph, is extremely comfortable for front and rear passengers, and is well equipped with enough brass equipment to keep the most fastidious of polishers well occupied.
