THE PANHARD PEr7

Sir,

My experiences with a PLx7 may be of interest to you and the readers.

After four years’ wonderful motoring with a VW, and wanting a change for a larger car, I looked around at all the cars at £800 £1,000, but none came up to the Citro6t Fifteen I had around 1952, Or the VW. All the bread-and-butter cars in this country are to-me no better than made in 1940. You reported, in April 1960, on the Panhard and in May I bought one. As yet I have to experience the leaps and bounds, you spoke of. The nacelle on which the instruments are placed did reflect in the screen, but a coat of matt black has put a stop to that, on the hood particularly. Visibility is as good as the VW

now I have raised the seat runners in., at the same time gaining more room to the person’s feet in the rear.

After a week with the car one will not be making mistakes with the lamps, horn and flasher stalk.

The flamboyant upholstery : one is not obliged to have that. I have cream with a little white lilac, the car being white lilac. Using underfelt and Molyslip in engine and gearbox, the engine is very silent and the gear-change very sweet. A big improvement was the fitting of a Runbaken oil-coil.

It is a most comfortable car to drive; after a run of over zoo miles one is not tired. Making a note of all petrol bought from May 1960 to date, it works out at 43 m.p.g. (Esso Extra). I have not used any oil between oil changes (Esso).

A good fOolproof car with no frills and sharp cornett. Almost two years, and no complaints; nothing has fallen off, no water enters, everything works, no rattles. A good heater and demister. When something as good is made in this country I will change; until then the Panhard PL17 will answer my wants. May I sign off as

” SATISFIED.”
