Carrosserie Manessius was founded in 1919 by Manes Levy in the Parisian suburb of Puteaux. The name was a Latinisation of Levy's forename. Business was very successful, so Levy moved to a new and larger facility in Levallois-Perret in 1922 and he also had a shop in Brussels, Belgium. A leader in innovative construction techniques, he pioneered in all-metal construction, body mounting and painting methods, as well as the 'conduite interieure' integral luggage compartment.
