Chenard & Walcker
Ernest Chenard built bicycles and motor tricycles before joining forces with Henri Walcker around 1897. They soon ventured into the automobile market, and their first machine was a tricycle converted to a quadricycle, still using the motorcycle frame, saddle and fuel tank. It had a passenger seat at the front in the style of a forecar.
The firm continued production of automobiles, often very luxurious, into the 1930s and was then taken over by another company which continued to market the brand until WWII.
