1957 Panhard Dyna Z… As one of the two oldest automobile manufacturers in the world, Panhard and Levassor of Paris presented, in early 1954, a new Dyna model called the 54 and 56. Constructed of aluminum and having a total weight of 1630 pounds, it was lighter than a VW of the time. There were very few cars that had the combination of interior room, trunk space, styling, and most importantly a performance-based power plant. With four doors and two large bench seats it was well suited as a family car. Being a light car, having a 50 BHP two cylinder engine gave plenty of power and fuel economy to make this unique front wheel drive car desirable to the American market.
A side note… I’m a fan of manga, and the front view of this car reminds me of Sgt. Keroro, a character in a popular series, Sgt. Frog, which was later serialized into an anime TV series. Google it and tell me you don’t see a similarity… 😉
