A product of the French, the Poirier Voiturette was a tandem-seater design that was a hybrid between a motorcycle and a two-seater sports car. Voiturette roughly translates to ‘cycle-car’, which basically means ‘small motor vehicle’.
1958 was the last year of production, with a steel body enveloping a tube frame chassis. This was actually a XW5 Monoto, powered by a 125cc Ydral engine.
This specific Poirier Voiturette (VIN: 1981) has 2,358 miles and is claimed to be running quite well. The body has some surface rust and some scratches.
