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.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
