Solido 1:43 Peugeot D4A
When Peugeot took over the old French carmaker Chenard et Walcker after the war, they inherited their CPV, a van developed in the late 1930s and a direct competitor for Citroën's somewhat similar TUB/TUC. Like the Citroën it was front wheel drive, but unlike the Citroën had a tiny two-cylinder two-stroke engine that was soon replaced with the engine from Peugeot's 202 saloon. The original engine allowed for a sleek front end, but the Peugeot engine forced Chenard to extend the nose and this led to the nickname 'nez de cochon' or 'pig snout'. The van became a Peugeot, the D3, from 1950, and was built for Peugeot by Chausson. It was Peugeot's first front wheel drive model.
