When was that Heuliez drawing drawn? It looks very American.

Have Heuliez finally gone bust then?

As far as I can tell 1972.

Have Heuliez finally gone bust then?
Possibly not - quite.
Heuliez, the small French contract automaker who's future has been uncertain for the past year, has finally had the winter clouds above its head give way to sunshine and has (likely) been heard saying "Le printemps est arrivé!" Indeed, spring has arrived for the employer of 600 in the form of an investment agreement from Brightwell that will see the company on the receiving end of €30 million (U.S. $41.29 million at today's rate) all told from that firm and government sources. It is hoped the infusion will help the 90-year-old company continue on its recent course of renewal that has seen it take on some impressive new talent (Murat Günak and David Wilkie from Mindset) and launch its newest model, the Mia.

Must have been a Swede at an Oslo Citroen rally - unless the Swedish Diplomatic Service still run Tractions as embassy cars :)
