Panhard Dyna X

The pleasure of a classic goes much further than it possesses, you can show it (it?) At classic events and enjoy the admiration that many visitors experience. Then you are willing to tell everything about the stunning Panhard Dyna X ...

By: Dirk de Jong


The year of construction is 1953, this model was built from 1946. The engine is an air-cooled two-cylinder boxer (Fiat-twin) 850 cc with 38 HP. The four-speed gearbox is manual and the Panhard Dyna X has front-wheel drive. The chassis is made of steel and the body consists of sheet metal made of aluminum on a cast aluminum frame while the mudguards are made of steel. 

It has the original color bronze green (Vert Bronze). The brand is Panhard & Levassor, which, as you know, is one of the oldest car brands in the world. For the owner a magical car, there is admiration for the excellent paint job done by Dijkstra in Slochteren and the upholstery by Tim van der Heuvel in Wildervank. 

A rare Panhard Dyna X that deserves to be on Auto Motor Klassiek to appear.

  1. Nice article about the Panhard, but with a flat twin and certainly no Fiat engine. The engine has, I thought, no loose cylinder heads. The heads are integral with the cylinders. So there are no head gaskets that can leak. 50 years ago I was friends with an English engineer who had some of these motorcycle blocks in Douglas motorcycles
    built. A BMW R69 was nothing …….

    PS had these engine blocks I thought torsion bar valve springs?

    • Yes, correct, Panhard made their engines themselves.
      And the valve springs were / are indeed a short torsion bar that protrudes nicely outside the valve cover.
      My 1952 Panhard “K-series” Break, was sold to a Canadian restoration shop, At the “Concourse D'Lemon” in Monterey ((in the Classic car week prior to the “Pebble Beach” Concourse)) that whole “sale / sales ”filmed flawlessly and is on YouTube 😃
