Description

1963 - PANHARD PL 17 TIGER CABRIOLET

Chassis No.: 1180555
French registration papers

- 125 models in 1963
- Quality complete restoration
- Extremely rare on sale

The copy we are interested in here is therefore one of the last products produced during the 1963 vintage. Put into circulation in February 1963, it is white in colour and has a burgundy red leather interior. It should be remembered that only two colours were available in the catalogue: white or metallic grey, which is not very happy for a convertible! The current owner Mr R. buys the car in 2016 and, not satisfied with the state in which the car is, embarks on a complete restoration. The best craftsmen in his region will be chosen to carry out a work whose result will be sublime. The box was completely sandblasted and repaired when necessary. The invoices are around 20000 €... The white paint finally applied by the Excellence Auto Collection garage in Aubenas, it is inside to be redone by the Leclerc saddlery in Crest (26). A total of almost €10,000 will be spent on this, including the construction of a new high-quality alpaca soft top. The mechanics, which have already been partially overhauled before purchase, will be completely rebuilt with parts supplied by the Dynamic club Panhard and Levassor. Engine block removed, cylinder head overhauled, new valves, engine bearing changed...etc. It is an absolutely new car that is presented to us, preserving its original elements and its old-fashioned charm. The Tiger engine works perfectly and emits its characteristic "pan-pan" sound! Today, Panhard PL 17 convertibles are extremely rare and very few are on the market. It is a unique opportunity to acquire an atypical, original and completely restored convertible here.

This car will be sold by auction by AGUTTES Auction House, in Lyon, France, on November the 9th, 2019.
