Peugeot 203 saloon 1954 and taxi G7 1954

Comments

Like many Atlas models, the wheels are too big, the ground clearance too high, the windows too small. There are no tail lights.

I don’t understand why many manufacturers of models of the 50s and 60s put yellow or even orange headlights to them. The bulbs were yellow, not the optics! Only foreigners coming to France put yellow filters on their headlights.

See Loco Revue forum.

Modifications

Ground clearance lowered with a ø 1,2 carbide drill. Tyres tapered with a razor blade and glued to the rims.
