The Peugeot Type 63 is an early motor car designed by Armand Peugeot and produced by the French auto-maker Peugeot at their Audincourt plant in 1904. 136 were produced, divided between shorter wheelbase Type 63As and longer wheelbase Type 63Bs.
The car was seen by some as a belated replacement for the company’s Type 36, intended as a mid-range car, but with more interior space than most competitor vehicles. Nevertheless, with a wheel-base 2,100 mm (82.7 in) on the Type 63A and 2,400 mm (94.5 in) on the Type 63B, the Type 63 was substantially longer.
The Type 63 was propelled using a parallel twin cylinder 1,078 cc four stroke engine, mounted ahead of the driver. A maximum of 7 hp (5 kW) of power was delivered to the rear wheels by means of a rotating drive-shaft.
Body types offered included an open carriage Tonneau format body, what would subsequently become known as a Torpedo body and a Coupé-Limousine which at that time was a body style resembling a small closed carriage but with an engine instead of horses.

|1 These cars were marketed as "Lion-Peugeots", produced by what was till 1910 a separate Peugeot company, run by cousins of Armand Peugeot, then in charge of the principal automobile business.
In 1910, Armand having no sons of his own, it was agreed that the two branches of the Peugeot business be reunited.
