197x (km 18.000; Alfred Forucroy via P.C., pers. Mitteilung 11.5.2019) Front und Chassis des Fahrzeugs bei Unfall in Uccle (B) schwer beschädigt

"In the seventies the chauffeur of Miss Fourcroy had to pick-up the car in the garage Guy Trigaut, it was the garage of the AC importer. The chauffeur normally drove a Peugeot 404 and when he started out of the garage with full gas he couldn’t stop the car. It was a small one way street with cars parked on both sides of the road, so the Frua knocked badly plus minus 9 cars and finished on the wall of a café. It was Rue Vanderkindere in Brussel.
The poor chauffeur explained, that the gas pedal was blocked. So the car went back to the garage. In fact the nose and the chassis were in bad condition. After this incident began a discussion with the garage manager, and the Fourcroy family sent an expert for all the damage caused, also in the street.
When the expert of the insurance company came, the car was parked in front of a wall in the garage. The expert of the insurance said: “Finally, what was happening with the car?” He turned the key, the car started, and again the car finished against the wall.
After that the car had to stay for years in the garage. No decision was taken, the garage has never been paid, and parts had been stolen from the car, so the motor. In fact, the garage owner had probably sold some pieces of the car to pay his bill, so the engine.
That is also the reason why in your listing you say that the car had been transformed in a cobra replica."
