This early Peugeot, which has never been restored, is a typical example of the horseless carriage. The car was delivered to a Parisian customer on 8 June 1894 and is thereby one of the oldest cars produced by a manufacturer still in existence. The first Peugeot car was presented in 1889 and was steam driven. But a year later it was decided to instal a petrol engine; initially this would be a Daimler, but as of 1896, Peugeot produced its own engines. This Type 6 was only produced in 1894 in a batch of seven, and is still equipped with a 2-cylinder Daimler engine. The family firm Peugeot Freres was set up in 1810, producing steel tools, clocks and kitchen equipment such as coffee and pepper mills; it later made bicycles and sewing machines. It was the cousins Armand and Eugene Peugeot who took the initiative to start producing cars.
