Beschreibung

Unregistered

- Very rare with this body
- Interior protected by covers
- Interesting and original model
- No reserve

In the mid-1930s, Panhard yielded to the fashion for aerodynamic styling, and moved from the very classic Panoramique, to the Dynamic, designed by Louis Bionier, with its unusual, even baroque appearance. Under this exuberant form, the car benefitted from modern engineering: a monocoque body, torsion bar suspension and hydraulic brakes that gave it a handling that was better than average for the period. It took on some of the stylistic features of the Panoramique, such as the small curved windows either side of the windscreen.
The model on offer is a rare Junior coupé, on a short chassis (2,60 m), which in this Dynamic 130 version had a 2.5-litre six-cylinder Knight sleeve valve engine. The original interior has been protected with covers and the dashboard appears to be complete. The car still possesses its bumpers, that have been removed, as well as the spare wheel cover. According to the book on the marque by Bernard Vermeylen, there would have been less than 25 examples of this model produced with this coachwork, during 1936 and 1937, the two years it was built, making this a particularly rare car. Enthusiasts will certainly be aware of this exclusivity.
