An undamaged example of the Doctor's car in the French national motor museum at Mulhouse in northern France
This example of what today is known as "The Doctor's Car" in Oradour, shows a Peugeot 202 and it is located in the French national motor museum in Mulhouse, Alsace, Northern France. Ironically the model type was known as a "Berline" (which can be translated as Berlin, but more usually as, Saloon). It is described as being front-wheel drive, with an engine of 1133cc capacity and capable of 105 km/h (65.5 mph). This car in the museum was originally registered in the Haut-Rhin, Department 68, of the Alsace Region of France. One notable feature of the car is the way that the headlights have been mounted behind the grill and it can be seen that in the Doctor's car at Oradour, the grill has been cut away, possibly in order to remove the lights for spare parts.
