Panhard was among the earliest automobile producers and, by some criteria, the first volume car producer in the world, back in 1890. The Panhard 24 is a compact two-door coupé produced between 1964 and 1967 by the French manufacturer. It was powered by a front-mounted air-cooled two-cylinder boxer motor: the basic design of this unconventional engine dated back to the 1940s. Also familiar from a succession of post-war Panhard saloons was the four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox and the front-wheel-drive configuration. The wheels were independently suspended with telescopic shock absorbers and a torsion bar for the rear axle. Although the 24 had no Panhard badged successor, a number of the features of the Citroën GS which appeared (after an unusually long gestation period) in 1970 respected Panhard traditions. The Panhard 24 may be thought of as the swan song of Panhard car production.

This Panhard 24CT 2 door Coupe is finished in Red and offered as a right-hand drive car, however, it had resided in much drier climes than the UK, in Southern France and has been converted to right-hand drive with the correct steering rack since being brought to the UK c.2016. When it was purchased in 2016 by the vendor the 24CT was located in a barn in the South of France, where it had stored in the dry for approximately 20 years. A lengthy restoration followed and was then UK registered in October 2021. 'CBU 698B' has been in use since and has been running well. There had not been any mechanical, engine or gearbox restoration, just servicing as the vendor advised that the car ran well even after 20 years in the barn. Offered with a collection of restoration photographs and current V5c document.
