  1. Unic

    Unic was a French car manufacturer. It was founded by Georges Richard in 1906 after he left Richard-Brasier. Société anonyme des automobiles UNIC was established in Puteaux with two-cylinder and four-cylinder models. Initially the manufacturer's range was restricted to light cars, but their popularity as taxis led to the production of delivery vans and other small utility style vehicles. The 1943 cc 12 CV four-cylinder model was extremely successful and survived in production for nearly 20 years. During World War I, taxis made by the company participated in the Marne operation. After World War I, a new four-cylinder was offered, along with the taxis. In 1922 the firm introduced a three ton truck, called the Unic MSC, which marked the start of a switch towards production of larger commercial vehicles. 1922 was also the year when the founder of Unic, Georges Ricard, died while awaiting transfer to a Paris clinic, following a motor accident en route to Rouen. Georges Dubois, hitherto in charge of vehicle testing, took on responsibility for the business. During the 1920s, a 1997 cc sports model was marketed and in some models sleeve valve engines were used. In the 1930s, there were two eight-cylinder models.
