By 1935, Citroën, Peugeot and Rosengart had stopped producing their economy models. For the average Frenchman it was now almost impossible to buy a car. Many companies and individuals tried to find a solution by designing some sort of car for people who couldn’t afford one: an impossible task. Still, from 1935 up to 1960, more than 100 attempts were made, ranging from brilliant to absurd.

The variety of these constructions is mindboggling, but so far, they have generally been ignored by car historians. This book aims to fill the gap with histories of the most important concepts and constructions, illustrated with many hundreds of high-quality period photographs and documents.
