    Default AMILCARS in Australia

    Hi there,
    I am interested to hear from any Amilcar owners or prospective owners on this site. Amilcars have a wonderful history and I am hoping to get some feedback from local owners. I have a plan to buy a restoration project one day. So any leads for cars or parts would be welcome.

    My background is Citroens and there is an early association between Amilcar and Citroen. I have recently purchased a 1925 Amilcar - G series Sport so I am hoping to make this thread a focus for other owners to create some common interest and help one another. You can PM me any leads or requests.

    It would be great to have a lively Amilcar group here. Thanks and good luck with it.

    I've got a Le Zebre which is the connection between Amilcar and Citroen.

    There are quite a few Amilcars in the Vintage Sports Car Club. There were at least 10 at the Tour de Fleurieu a month or so back.

    A few weeks ago I asked someone about this business of Amilcars being, to my mind, surprisingly common in SA, which I recall from my teen years and Collingrove Hillclimb!

    I was told that back in the 1920s shearers bought them to drive between jobs, or from jobs to home, as they were faster and cheaper than some alternative or other. Who knows, and maybe I'll even remember who told me! It's an interesting angle on things.

    I've always wondered.

    Cheers

    Yes I believe there are more Amilcars in S.A. than any other state.
    On the weekend I pulled the carbi apart and replaced the 33gm petrol float ( exactly the same as a 1926 B 12 Citroen ) and now it starts but runs too quickly. Today I found out why from another Amilcar owner ( my good friend Geoff ) in Trentham Vic. So I will make some more adjustments. It has Teclamite grease connections - so I now need to find a grease gun to match - and then the keyed switch for the Magneto is seized. It is a steep learning curve. Loving it though. Ted
