Built between 1934 and 1938, the Panhard Panoramic was a host of many technical innovations. Its angle windows - on either side of the windshield to cope with blind spots - were one of its many particularities. This model was available with various engine sizes all of which were valveless (license Knight). The X73 had the largest engine in the range, with 2861cm3 and 80hp.
The example on offer would have been delivered to Ms T. in March 1936 with several specific details like the two-tone red bodywork, openwork wheels, two independent front seats, and optional front and rear bumpers. It was then registered in the south of France in 1955 and acquired by a Breton enthusiast in 1977. Our collector acquired it at an auction in 2008, sensitive in regard to the cars original state and unusual color. It has since remained as it is, only the engine, which is original, had been started 10 years ago and is not blocked. Recently, four new Michelin Superconfort tires have been fitted. The beautiful dashboard is complete with the exception of the watch, and the interior is trimmed in beige period cloth. This original and well preserved example deserves a beautiful restoration that will highlight its technical and aesthetic specificities.
