Sénéchal was a French automobile manufacturer established by the French racing driver and aviation pioneer Robert Sénéchal in 1921 making cyclecars and light cars until its closures in 1929.
Sénéchal started his venture in Courbevoie, Paris, making cyclecars but due to the company’s almost immediate success a deal was negotiated with Chenard & Walcker in 1923 whereby they would manufacture Sénéchal models as they had no model of their own in the cyclecar class. The economy grew and with it the Sénéchal concern and a light car was added to the number of models offered. Engines were still supplied by external companies such as Ruby, Train or Chapuis-Dornier.
In 1925 Sénéchal was taken over by Chenard & Walker Voiturettes who continued to produce cars powered by Chenard & Walcker engines, until 1929 when production ceased.
This 1924 Sénéchal 7 HP light car was found in disrepair in South America where it was skillfully brought back to life and rebodied with this attractive, lightweight, fabric body that it now has. A perfect VSCC car for trials, rallies and other events as well as an excellent entrant for the ever popular light car club.
