DE DION & BOUTON mod. BG

(France 1907)

In the early years of the century, De Dion & Bouton was also one of the main suppliers of engines to other European automakers.

The BG runabout is one of the company’s last single-cylinder models and was produced at a time when the make was very popular. Its wide diffusion was also assisted by some advanced features, such as the automatic engine lubrication pump and the lighting equipment with an acetylene generator.
