Bedelia 1910 France

Soapbox car for adults

The 1901 Bedelia is considered the first commercial cyclecar and was built in France in 1910 by two engineers Borbeau and Devaux, who fitted it with a two-cylinder V-twin 8hp motor. This Bedelia was originally owned by department store mogul Mark Foy and was raced in rallies around Australia. The Museum purchased this Bedelia from the George Green Collection in Sydney.
