Dyna Z1

Dyna at Auto RAI



Late in 1955 the engine was modified by strengthened the crankshaft and installing a new carburetor. The engine becomes the M5.
From September Dyna Z can be equipped with a Ferlec electromagnetic clutch made by Ferodo.

The Junior model with the MAG booster option has the power of 60 hp and top speed 145 km/h.

In October the two-door break (estate) version by Leffondré was presented at the utility car show in Paris.

The Panhard automotive division is in financial difficulty. A colaboration with Citroen started in 1955. It seems like both companies might benefit from the cooperation. Citroën has huge resources, but focused its production on two diametrically opposed models: the 2CV and the DS / ID . Panhard has a model that could perfectly fill the gap in the range. The two lines complement each other perfectly. Citroën had taken a 25% holding in Panhard's automobile business. In return Panhard gained access to its resources. The Dyna can now compete with the Simca Aronde or Renault . The future seems to smile for Panhard.
