    My wife (who doesn't care about cars) said this is the car she would have of all on display.

    Anyone know its history?

    If you check the "La Voiture" magazines on the French and Fantastic forum the owner has done an article on it

    The Panhard was bought new from Joubert Motors in Melbourne, it is a one owner car (or was 'til I bought it) from new. It hadn't been driven since 1970 due to a broken engine mount and a slipping clutch. The owner of the car drove to Perth across the unsealed Nullabor from Ceduna to Norseman in 1962 to watch the Empire Games, then did the return trip back to Melbourne. He was then transfered in his job to Darwin so again drove over unsealed roads to the top end, one of the engine mounts subsequently broke, he tied it up with bungy rubber to keep it going. when the clutch started to fail he put it in a shed while he waited for replacement parts, which never arrived.
    He was then transferred back to Melbourne leaving the car in the shed. In 1974 the shed was blown away by Cyclone Tracey, as was most of Darwin. After several years out in the weather it was trucked back to Melbourne but never repaired. The old gentleman subsequently retired and trucked the car to Perth where he now lives aged 89.Panhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a3.jpgPanhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a1.jpgPanhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a2.jpgPanhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a7.jpgPanhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a4.jpgPanhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a5.jpgPanhard in Perth at the French Car Festival-a6.jpg

    From the front with it's mouth open, it looks like a hippo! Or possibly a bull-frog...

    Here's a lovely one at the car park at Le Mans. I can't wait for the restoration in Perth.

    They are gorgeous.

    What a delightful little car, and with a great back story as well! It would have been a fantastic sight on the Nullarbor, pastel yellow against the red dust. Well worth preservation in its current form, rather than a full repaint.

    It's a real gem. I suspect a good clean up and work on the interior and trim will make a world of difference.

    Ha. That's what my wife said.

    Having witnessed Gerry's adventures with his CT, I would say this is going to be quite an effort to get it back on the road. One thing s for sure, the post is going to be busy between France and Australia for a while.

    I think they're tres Gallic in styling, futuristic, crazy clever mechanics, I know of one floating around Sydney, very desirable voiture. Almost as covetable as a D.
    needs polish though
    cool

    I am not sure which one I would choose between a DS and a 24CT.

    She's a lady of taste and discernment I'd say. That might be a backhanded compliment of you as well I suppose...

    Just pray you never have the opportunity to make the choice. I'm deeply in love with both too.

    Thank you. I choose carefully.

    If it wasn't for the many A110 Alpines present, I would have probably concurred.

    The 24CT has next to no chance to happen here, the DS much more likely, but I am picky. If I am ever going to have a DS it must be the Safari.

    And she did I imagine....

    Do you mean "that" Safari that is for sale in UK at present? Ultimate Safari just about. We've a Safari in the drive at present, sulking a bit while the CX is fixed in a few fiddly areas. Lovely cars.

    Are you coming to the FCF on 21st September? Time we met face to face - maybe we have??

    Maybe the Panhard will appear again.

    No, not looking at overseas cars. Bought a car off the internet once, sight unseen (so to speak), and wasn't a dud, on the contrary, but it did show me the pitfalls.

    I mean something like this:

    Citroen DS-23

    I like the pastel colours on these to bits too. Though I can imagine one in candy red with a white roof would be just the kind of thing you'd keep in your living room and lick it every now and then. Geez. I am scaring myself.

    That is seriously gorgeous. Auto-porn really! Lucky I didn't know it was for sale....
