This interesting four seat tourer was manufactured in France by automobile engineer Jouffret, who invented the Solex carburettor and was the designer of the Peugeot aircraft engine.

The model was powered by the well-known four cylinder 1593cc Ballot Type 405 engine, coupled to a four speed gearbox and straight bevel rear axle. The road springs were all-round semi-elliptic - with the front springs tapered towards the front which was apparently an advantage. The brakes were Perrot-type, used also on W. O. Bentley.

The sole concessionaires for the entire United Kingdom were C. F. Rymer Ltd of Liverpool and the Jouffret was produced only from 1921 until 1928. It is understood that this example is the only survivor - an antique motor car in the truest sense of the word.

BF 7006 was purchased in 1975 as a restoration project from Mike Carter of Penny Wise Motoring fame. The project was relatively complete, except for the headlamps and hood, and cost £715. An interesting and amusing account of the purchase was documented in The Automobile in May and September 2001: apparently the Jouffret was discovered in a French monastery and naturally, rather a large amount of wine was involved.

A body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration was carried out by the current custodian. The engine was reconditioned and fitted with new pistons, camshaft, timing chains, guide and sprockets by specialist Thomas Hamlin and Co. of Bridgwater at a cost of £9500. We are informed that the gearbox and rear axle were also overhauled, as were the steering and braking systems. A new wiring loom has been fitted and all mechanical and electrical components checked and restored as required before refitting. The coachwork was rebuilt, painted and refitted to the chassis and the upholstery was also renewed at the time. Interestingly, the vendor purchased an industrial sewing machine from the Clarkes shoe factory for the sole purpose of making a new hood, using high quality Double Duck canvas. The standard of the workmanship is first class.

Due to a change in circumstances, this vintage Jouffret is now available and will require recommissioning before returning to the road. An exciting and rare opportunity indeed.

A vast history file accompanies the Jouffret, which includes the V5C registration certificate, correspondence, invoices, images, technical data, drawings, wiring diagrams and a photocopy report, dated 19 January 1921, from The Motor magazine. This interesting four seat tourer was manufactured in France by automobile engineer Jouffret, who invented the Solex carburettor and was the designer of the Peugeot aircraft engine.
