1959 Panhard Dyna Z16 (Fish-lips)
Last updated Jul 14, 2011
Amazing French design. Original cars in 1954 were all aluminium. Costs required later change to steel bodies like this one, but cast aluminium bumpers and trim were retained. This is the first year for the two tone paint scheme. The Dyna Z16 has an 850cc, horizontally opposed, two cylinder, four stroke, engine with torsion bar valve springs, and which runs on only 4 to 5 pounds of oil pressure (roller bering crankshaft). There are no fuses in the entire vehicle!
