Description

1927 DARMONT TYPE DS 1090CC 2CYL OHV 3306


Darmont was a French automobile manufacturer, based at Courbevoie in the Paris region and active between 1919 and 1939. In 1919 Roger and André Darmont concluded an agreement with the British Morgan factory to build that car under licence in France. This was to avoid to pay the high import duties on a finished car. They originally purchased the essential parts such as chassis, engines and bevel boxes from Morgan but quickly set up to source them locally. By 1922 the car was made more or less entirely made in Courbevoie. The manufacturer remained faithful to their three-wheeler formula until 1935, when they launched the V-Junior. With the outbreak of the Second World War Darmont production stopped.
At the end of 1926 a new model, the Darmont Spécial, was brought out. It was powered by Darmont’s own 85x96mm bore x stroke engine -actually a copy of a Blackburne engine- but now in a water-cooled version and fitted with a Solex carburettor. Company adverts claimed a top speed of around 150km/h. Final drive is with double chains.
