Vaillante Concorde (10)

The second version of the Concorde in 1966

The Vaillante Concorde is a model first introduced in 1963. Vaillante issued a challenge to young readers of a popular magazine, the goal being to see what the young mind could come up with. The first version of the Concorde is one of those designs, along with the Vaillante Le Mans and Vaillante La Boule.


The first version, introduced in 1963, is a combination of several chosen challenge designs. The bodywork is designed by a Belge and a Frenchman; the nose by an Algerian boy.

Version two is seen several years later, in front of the Vaillante factory. The nose is altered ever so slightly, featuring slightly slanted head lights.
