1951 Kover

The Societe Industrielle de Livry, having introduced the Atlas in 1949, brought out a second vehicle at the Paris Salon of 1951.

It too adopted the two-seat roadster "pedal car" style of the Atlas, Rolux and Rovin D-2. It utilized the same "house" chassis and AMC motor as the Atlas, incorporating a separate gearbox located near the left side drive wheel and incorporating a reverse. The body was a little more "downscale" than the Atlas, with no doors and lights perched on top of the fenders rather than built-in.

The third Livry product was the Biscooter-like Le Piaf.
Even more "downscale", it wore more of a rudimentary, utilitarian, Jeep-like body.

The Kover was produced for only a short time in very small numbers.
