1945 Velocar Type H a Moteur
The French population had pedaled their way through the five fuel-less years of the occupation. Perhaps it was a new world now and they were tired of pedalling. Nevertheless, Georges Mochet had taken note of the private fitting of off-brand motors to his Velocars before and during the war , and decided to offer a factory designed, motorized vehicle himself.
The pedals-only, wood-bodied Velocar Type H already had the flat vertical "cut off" rear ready to accept a fuel tank. It was a small matter to delete one set of pedals and to fit a windscreen as standard to create the "a Moteur" version. There was no separate starter, one simply pedaled off and engaged the motor. A separate handbrake was introduced, and a full top and sidescreen set- as fitted to this car- was an optional extra at 8500 francs.
