Aft'noon all,

It's a shame that the description for this Panhard auction is a little on the brief side, and a few more photos showing the interior and engine bay wouldn't go amiss, but overall I really like the quirkiness of it. An interesting project perhaps, and a good excuse to visit autojumbles and shows in France, on the hunt for bits.

Nice quirky car. I am just old enough to remember to see (and hear!) Panhards on the road, even then they were rare. Early Seventies.
Those door shape lines, amazing.

Apparently sold for 3,000, so why not go for the earlier model in right hand drive for just 2,700?

Found a couple of those earlier examples in a barn, really cool looking things IMO.

Despite their small capacity engine(850cc),these were quite rapid cars,especially considering their size.
I was never a fan of the saloon,but Panhard,s later 24CT models were very stylish cars.A shame that was Panhard's swansong,as they produced technically interesting and advanced cars.
