1898 Fisson 8HP 3-Litre Tonneau. Louis Fisson founded his car company in Paris in 1896. While only in business for a few years, he managed to build an unknown number of cars before he gave up the venture in 1898. There were two types available – a rear-engined and a front-engined model. This is of the front-engined variety and it is the only one like it that survives. It uses a 3.0-liter straight-two (the cylinders are giant) making eight horsepower.
