The AAF (Association Autocars Anciens de France) restored a classic 1937 Saurer autocar, a valuable piece of French motoring heritage. With the help of Motul and and the Fondation du patrimoine they succeeded in returning this beautiful vehicle to it’s former glory.
Ten years ago Motul and the fondation du patrimoine forged a partnership making Motul their exclusive patron when it comes to motoring heritage. The passion for classic motor vehicles and their preservation is deeply engrave in Motul’s core values. This is why projects such as the reinvigoration of the 1937 Saurer bus means so much to the brand.
The Saurer was found in the Haute-Alps in horrible condition but underwent a painstaking process of restoration, overlooked by Jean-Louis Eschlauer and his team. A team which was largely made up of pupils learning a trade to prepare them for a job in the mechanical or automotive industry. Upon it’s completion almost 70% if the students achieved to find a job because of this experience.
