1958 Biscuter Furgoneta 200-I

Several years after acquiring the license for building the Biscuter, the industrialist and politician Jose Maria Marcet Coll produced in addition to the model 200-C estate car, a purely industrial version- the Biscuter "Furgoneta" in Barcelona, or "Furgon" in the Madrid dialect. Introduced in February 1958, it was called Type 200-I (for "Industrial"), and was similar in style to the Citroen 2 CV utility truck body.

As opposed to the 200-C, the 200-I had a truck box of wood and steel, which extended out from the sides and was higher than the driver's roof. The Biscuter was also available as Type 200-I- P (for "Practicable") with a canvas tarpaulin.

Because of the economic upturn and the introduction of the SEAT 600, the Spanish population was able to affort a better class of vehicle. The once much-loved Biscuter’s popularity declined.
