PEUGEOT trucks (utilitaires)


PEUGEOT also built light-duty trucks.

While the cars were classified by a number with a "0" in the middle of three numbers like 201, 301, 401, 601, 202, 302, 402, 203, 403, 404, 504, 604 etc. the light-duty trucks and their emblems are showing at least one letter like 201 T, 301 T, MKD, SKD, Q3A, DMA etc.

In my collection are 14 different prewar PEUGEOT truck  emblems. The French are calling the light-duty truck:  Utilitaire. So please have a look at my PEUGEOT  utilitaire emblems:

P.S. There are hundreds of books concerning the PEUGEOT car history. But not a single book is treating the history of the PEUGEOT light-trucks. If I´m wrong, don´t hesitate to inform me.


LION PEUGEOT / FRANCE



PEUGEOT had been a family controlled concern. But even in the best families there can be severe problems. So from 1906 to 1912 there were two Peugeot factories. The well known Peugeot Freres and the new LION - PEUGEOT. Here you see my LION PEUGEOT emblems:

PEUGEOT / FRANCE

It is a pleasure to collect Peugeot emblems. Because of their history of more than 100 years you  still have the chance to find a never seen Peugeot emblem. My collection started with Peugeot emblems in the seventies. Now I own about 40 different prewar Peugeot emblems. And there are a lot  more emblems if you also collect the younger emblems.

UNION / GERMANY

The German UNION car company started as Unionwerke Maschinenfabrik in Mannheim / Germany in 1885.               They offered their first truck in 1915 at the beginning of WW I.
Later it became UNION AG.
To my knowledge they offered  trucks only.
It was a short living company without any commercial succes.
Not a single  truck  survived.

 This emblem is really a rare bird:
