Panhard et Levassor : 1891 - 1967

PL 17 

1960 saw the launch of the PL 17 range which would be sold by CitroŽn dealers.

The two companies had been co-operating since 1955 - indeed the 2CV AU and AK models had been built alongside one another for years. 

The PL 17 was a Dyna Z with new front and rear but looked completely different. The car was available with Jaeger semi-automatic transmission which employed electromagnetic powder as a clutch. The range was extended to include a break and a 2 door cabriolet.
