A MAN AND HIS BERLIET

french carThis vintage photograph features a well dressed man poses in front of his automobile. He is looking pretty self-important. His cap is resting on the top of his car and he is enjoying a cigarette. The auto is impressive. The back of the vehicle is a convertible. Note the headlights and the front bumper. Also of interest, is the sign behind the car for “Motoricine Motor Oil”. Compare the bumper to the bumpers of today. We’ve come a long way. The front grill has the Berliet signature and in addition, the Berliet’s emblem. Berliet was a French company that manufactured automobiles, buses, trucks, and military vehicles. The company was based near Lyon, France. The company was established in 1899 and was privately owned until 1967 when it became part of Citroen. In 1974, it was acquired by Renault. Berliet was merged with Saviem to become Renault Trucks in 1978. By 1980, there were no vehicles in the Berliet line. This photograph measures about 4 5/8″ x 3″ and is in very good condition. Note the bottom border of the photo appears to have been trimmed to fit a frame.
