We have a wonderful and exceedingly rare 1921 Avions Voisin C1. The factory only built about 1,000 C1’s of which only a handful remain.
The car has been fully restored in the past. The restoration was carried out to a high standard with a lot of attention to the car’s origins. The car has mainly stood still more recently as part of an Avions Voisin collection. The engine moves freely and is no doubtless in need of a major service.
The C1 has a 3,969 cc straight-six giving the large French limousine a top speed of just over 80 km/hr.
For its age, the bodywork is remarkably good shape. The car is even partly original with correct alignment. The C1 was given a blue finish at the time. The paintwork still looks good with only minor signs of the effect the years have had. The interior trim consists of black leather on the drivers and passengers seat with the typical Avions Voisin Art-Deco designed cloth upholstery in the back. It certainly creates an absolutely unique look. Just as special are the two little stool in front of the rear bench that doubles up as footstools for the rear passengers.
The dashboard is complete and in good shape, The car is full of fantastic detail no longer seen in modern cars. Just consider the copper grill surround or the two full-size spare wheels framing each side of the bonnet.
This very rare big French limousine will not need a lot to bring her back to her former glory! THIS VEHICLE IS IN OUR STORAGE, VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
