Grégoire (Automobiles Tracta SA)
Jean-Albert Grégoire was an automotive engineer who designed many prototypes and headed the company SA of the Tracta automobile before the Second World War . In October 1947, he exhibited under his name a prototype at the Paris Motor Show , but it was not until 1956 that he began mass production of vehicles marketed under his name. 1972 ended the production.
A. Gregoire, who had been associated in prewar days with the Tracta concern, and with the Amilcar Compound model, set up his own concern in 1945, immediately after the end of the Second World War. His designs, which always featured light-alloy chassis castings and front-wheel-drive, were taken up by Panhard (for the very successful Dyna), and by Hotchkiss, who built a restricted number of front-wheel-drive 2.2-litre saloons in 1951 and 1952.
