1944 VAP engine – Number 1925 A1

Production of the first VAP engine started in 1942. It was 50cc. Not many were made and, these days, they are extremely rare.

The magneto is a Wageor et L. Couffinhal AA1.

Here, you can compare it with the next model, the VAP2, which was introduced after the war, and was reduced to 48cc in line with the new government exemptions regarding vehicles that could be driven without registration or driving license (still in force today in France). The early VAP is on top in the pictures.

The position of the magneto and the different carbs are the most obvious difference between the two.

VAP2 or VAP3 engine – Number 11140

I’m not sure if this is a VAP2 or a VAP3. According to records (which may or may not be correct), the engine number makes it a VAP3, but the badge is different to the VAP3’s I’ve come across.
