Is there a wheelbase or overall length window we’re looking at?
Oh yeah! Loving this round. This is my new Christmas business now
A longer car costs more but has better comfort and probably SVC, so it’s a nice trade off built into the criteria I think.
Sixties shitboxes! Yes!
no wheelbase limits, just try to find the perfect balance of the priorities
How tight is this budget?
Also, how tall is this guy? I’m 6’2" and drove a Fiat 126 and a Mini so I know exactly what comfort levels they had…
Rover Mini was a little easier on the spine but not by much…
Does Jean-Pierre prefer a manual transmission over an automatic one, or vice versa?
France is manual only except for luxury market, at any time (things are changing today with dual clutches gearboxes)
Im going for last.
Automatics in this class would have been really rare in 1966, unless you got a Daffodil or something…
The Daffodil had a primitive CVT, but that only made it more expensive to build - unnecessarily so, in fact.
Je vois une photo d’Ami 8 et en légende écrit Dyane! HORREUUUUUUUUUR!
By the way I’m in!
Question: Mandatory yellows obviously?
As an ignorant Aussie: Pourquoi?
From 1936 up to 1993, we had yellow headlights to differentiate our cars from the nazi ones.
We also kept them after WWII because the yellow headlights were better through fog and it blinded less incoming traffic if you had full beams on.
It ended in 93 because of european homogenisation and progress in technology.
Have a look at the Old Top Gear episode. Type “Old Top Gear 1990 - French Yellow headlight law” on YouTube.
THE NEW FOR 1966 SAARLAND ADJUNKT
LARGER- The new Adjunkt has a longer wheelbase, longer overall length, larger width. A benefit for the comfort - a benefit for the stability. The sedan now has four doors - easier entry, more practicality. If you don’t want four doors, there is now a sporty coupé model available, too!
STRONGER- The displacement is now enlarged to 1.1 litres, thanks to larger cylinder bore. Makes for faster, more relaxed driving.
SAFER- We added front seatbelts (mounting points available for the rear seat), a recessed steering wheel hub and more extensive interior padding. The new bodyshell is stronger than the previous model. Larger 13 inch rims and optional radial tyres makes the handling more secure than ever before.
UNCHANGED- Stable front wheel drive handling giving traction even in bad weather.
UNCHANGED- Precise rack and pinion steering
UNCHANGED- Space saving transverse engine layout
UNCHANGED- Low purchase price and running costs, making the Adjunkt a very economical car.
SAARLAND ADJUNKT. EVEN GOOD IDEAS CAN BE REFINED.
Do we know which region is Jean-Pierre from?
