The Panhard Dyna was an ideal base for many people and companies who wanted to build their own car. The Dyna chassis was light, not too expensive and the engine was relatively powerful. It was also easily to obtain, because Panhard was always very willing to provide their chassis and drive train to anyone.
The Allemano Dyna X86 Coupe in these pictures was designed by Michelotti and bodied by Allemano in a small series for the Panhard importer Crepaldi of Milan, Italy. The car was first shown in 1951 at the "Salone dell'Automobile di Torino".
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
