Prototypes

The restoration of 447 is approaching its end.


Initially we decided to do just some minor ameliorations on the paintwork, to make it look nicer but keep its original patina.
Once started we found out that most of the coachwork suffered from severe corrosion.

We already knew an M35 had left to Australia, but which one and where it went we didn't know. But happily we have a lot of people sympathizing with us.

It began with Marc whot told us a friend of his had a picture of the Australian, but the number was not readable. More info was asked but not found. Maybe the future would bring more.

Regularly we get mail with info on M35's, like this message about No. 167. We already knew it existed, but now we have proof, at least that it still existed in '91. See below for the mail we got from Geert Jonker;

We got in this Youtube-clip from '98, featuring No. 169. Huh, that one was in the Conservatoire last time we checked?

Denis Huille, Director of the Conservatoire, explained that the car at that time was still a part of the collection of the Citroën factory in Rennes. De collection included mostly cars produced in Rennes, among them the Ami and M35. At present several cars from that collection -M35, Ami Super, GSA X3, Mehari- are at the Conservatoire. About ten cars are still in storage in Rennes.

 

We received this picture from the current owner of No. 122. The second owner, Jacky Jardin, made it in '84 when the M35 was sold and transported to Holland.
