Innovative alloy-bodied car, with just one owner for over 40 years and offered in barn find condition.
The Amilcar Compound was produced from 1938 through the early 1940s with 681 examples built plus an additional 159 commercial vehicles (as many as 950 examples were reportedly built). They were designed by French engineer Jean-Albert Gregoire and given front-wheel drive configuration. Alpax, an aluminum alloy, was used extensively on the car. This was a new technology which often cause production delays due to the scarcity. The first Compound, the Compound B38, was shown at the 1937 Paris Motor Show. Most of the Compounds that followed were saloon and sedan bodies, with perhaps a cabriolet.
This desirable and technically advanced car is offered from the current owner, who has enjoyed the car for over 40 years. Finished in metallic blue with a matching blue leather interior, the Amilcar is said to be completely rust-free, is offered with its original UK registration document and at No Reserve to the highest bidder.
