The Amilcar Compound was produce in Frane from 1938 to 1941 with a total of 950 cars being built. It featured a 4-cylinder, 1185cc, 34hp engine capable of a top speed of 115 kilometers per hour.
This type of body, where the top could be rolled down, was called a Cabriolet Limousine, which originated in Germany and was very popular in the 1930s. The cast aluminum body, front wheel drive, rack and pinion steering, torque bars for rear suspension, and all-independent suspension made it a very nice car in 1938.
The aluminum frame on this car is in perfect condition and does not show any corrosion, even after 60 years.
