L'Opération M35

La nouvelle Opération M35

Februari 23rd it was time to collect the new windscreens. Paul had stuffed his XM and invited several owners to a nice location, Garage Visscher's showroom in Culemborg. Here we could admire the collection of Citroëns, Peugeots en Simca’s and meanwhile chat with each other. Two owners defied the wintery weather and came with their M35's, the rest chose to come with more salt-restistant transportation.

The production of M35 windscreens hast started, here's a picture of the first one being cut. Do you want to join this project; let us know as soon as possible. More news will be published soon.

 

Today I spoke to the owner of No. 158, he was busy getting his engine running again. He succeeded partially, with a lot of smoke and water leaking into the oil. Time to do things thoroughly and take the engine apart. His question was if several parts are still available and if I had pictures of parts of the engine. Yes, I do! During the disassembly of No. 473's engine I took several pictures.

We'll discuss the seals and gaskets later on, first a peek into the engine.

A message from Paul, the initiator of this project;


We’ve had a lot of response on the project, thanks for that. Our goal was an order of 15 windscreens to get an affordable price. We (almost) succeeded in that, we’ve got 14 M35-owners interested and the feeling that some others will jump on as well. December 6th I gave the order to the factory.

We've got a quote, subscription possible

At first the front windscreen of the M35 looks like one from an Ami 8. But it has more height and was made specifically for the M35. Unfortunately it has been unavailable for quite a while, which frightens some owners when they're touring the countryside. One stonechip can end the windscreen and the pleasure of driving for quite a while, one M35 is known to be stored because of a crashed windscreen.

To produce just one windscreen is not easy; try to find an owner who will lend you his to make a mould and on top of that the production of a single copy will be astronomically expensive (from 2500,-!!).
