We have featured a few of these fish-faced frencies before. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there is no denying that the Panhard Dyna was one of the most unique cars ever built. They can be hard to find on these shores, but one man in Port Ludlow, Washinton has accumulated four of them and has now listed the lot here on eBay in various states of disrepair.
The styling was not for everyone, but there was some interesting technology lurking under the skin. Fully independent suspension and hydraulic brakes may be commonplace now, but they were unheard of in the fifties. The Dyna came standard with those and the early cars were even fitted with lightweight alloy bodies. Power was provided by a tiny twin-cylinder engine which was air-cooled and placed way out front to provide more room for the six people ridding inside.
You are going to have to really love these cars to purchase this stash. There are four cars, two alloy bodied and two steel. One of them is sitting inside and others are out in the backyard. Only one has a title, but there is a bus full of parts. We would not even know where to start with this project. You could pick the best one and attempt a restoration, or if you already own a Dyna, just buy them all for spares.
