1956 - 1957

By the mid-50s circus Pinder reached its climax in need of comfortable and luxury vehicles. So, in 1956 and 1957 the company Assomption, known for its super-comfortable campers for famous peoples, made three unique trains with Ford tractor and camper.

The first combination (number 129 CE 37) was delivered in July 1956 and was intended for display manager René Bonnin. The second vehicle (number 665 CS 37) was made in July 1957 for Serge Spiessert, son of a general manager.
