I gather from the internet that Charles Schaudel was a Bordeaux gunsmith who made bicycles from the mid 1890s and built a car in 1900 which was exhibited at the Paris Salon. Unlike most cars of the time the crankcase and gearbox are integral (like Alec Issigonisís Mini) and the forward canted engine is mounted transversely in the chassis (another Mini feature!) The integrated gearbox design was known as Motobloc which was soon adopted as the companyís name.

The Schaudel has three forward speeds and a reverse gear with a single chain providing final drive to the rear axle. The really well engineered gear lever, hand brake, hand throttle and ignition controls are all conveniently placed by the steering wheel and there are two pedals, one being the accelerator and the other being a combined clutch and footbrake. The very pretty four seat rear entrance tonneau coachwork sits on a tubular chassis and the car has in-line half elliptic springs for both front and rear axles.

During its present ownership the car has been the subject of significant veteran car specialist engineering work included rebuilds of the engine and gearbox with detailed invoices in the file adding up to nearly £19,000 plus VAT. The file also includes the original Veteran Car Club dating application which resulted in the issue of certificate number 2548 which describes it as being car number 138 with 10 hp engine number 138. There are also interesting copies of original press articles and other items on Schaudel and Motobloc cars.

The car can fairly be described as being in super condition as it looks like it has just left the factory! Its mechanicals are as good as its appearance and it goes very nicely with its 1550cc engine providing plenty of power. In addition the car is obviously well put together with precise steering and strong brakes so you can drive it with confidence.

So here we have a very well presented four seat twin cylinder London to Brighton Run car in the sort of condition which will attract lots of attention wherever you go and its all important VCC dating certificate shows that is was built in 1902 which gets you a relatively early start at Hyde Park.
