History of the Peugeot 183

The Peugeot Type 183 was a 2-litre six-cylinder automobile manufactured by Peugeot at their Audincourt facility between 1927 and 1931. It was originally displayed at the Paris Motor Show in 1927, although automobiles were not available for purchase until 1928. France would remain Europe's top vehicle producer until 1932, and Peugeot, as a key participant at the time, provided a variety of small, medium-sized, and big cars. Nonetheless, the 183 represented Peugeot's return to the two-litre sedan/saloon class after a 15-year hiatus. The Type 143, the company's last product at this level, was discontinued in 1913.

The Type 183's six-cylinder 1,991 cc engine produced 38 PS on the "basic" 183 and 183 A, 42 hp on the more powerful 183 C, and 47 horsepower on the 183 D. The engine was installed forward of the driver, and power was routed to the rear wheels. The wheelbase of the 183 and 183 A version was 2992 mm, with an overall length of 4580 mm and a width of 1600 mm. Several body styles were available, including a saloon/sedan and even a 'Torpedo' that could seat up to seven passengers, while the cabriolet version could seat four or five people. The 183's spacious cabin made it a favourite among Paris taxi drivers. By the time the automobile was delisted in 1932, it had manufactured 12,636 units.
