Tuesday trivia. Last week's question: My Dad has owned French, German, Italian, as well as 5 different American manufacturer's products, yet has used the same brand key fob for all. What did dear ol' Dad drive? Anwer: Jeep. Produced by Ford, Bantam, Willys, AMC and Chrysler. AMC and Jeep were bought out by Renault, then Chrysler. Chrysler and Jeep sold out to Daimler Benz, then an investment firm ( oh, make that 6 American companies! ) then to FIAT. This is beside the fact that Jeep has been produced in many other countries including Beijing, Iran, Egypt, India, and the Netherlands just to name a few.

Wow!! I only had identified 4! It is interesting to see the " rebirth " of 4 bangers in large sedans, especially in the E class and 7 series.  I wonder what the take rates are? Meanwhile, GM has put the minuscule 1.4, four cylinder turbo ( 148 hp, 216 ft/lbs ) in many of their large offerings.  For comparison, The 230, 250 I6 produced between 140-155 hp, an average 1968 Chevelle tipped the scales above 3100 pounds. Today's Impala runs the scale to 3600 - 3800 pounds and is available with the 1.4 .  Hummmm.

 1964 Citroen DS19 Décapotable 

Beautifully restored and comprehensively upgraded, this 1964 Citroen DS19 Décapotable offers much more than initially meets the eye. Finished in a gorgeous shade of metallic indigo blue with a blue canvas roof and tan leather interior. Lifting the bonnet reveals a comprehensively built, turbocharged, fuel-injected 2.5-liter engine adapted

from a Citroen CX. From top to

bottom, the restoration and subsequent improvements ar beautifully executed.

Restoration occurred around 2004,

while the car was in Europe. The

project is documented with a series of photographs, and copies of ownership

papers place the car in Holland

in 2006. In 2011, the Citroen came

to the United States courtesy of an

enthusiastic new owner who immediately

had it serviced and prepared for touring

and rallies. Around that time, it was

decided to replace the original engine

with something more powerful,

while respecting the car’s rarity

and importance. The owner then

commissioned an Indiana-based prototyping/engineering firm to

source, build and install a late-model

CX GTi Turbo engine.

 

An impressive stack of invoices document the process, which took place from 2011-2013. So much more than a simple engine swap, an incredible amount of re-engineering took place to adapt the transverse CX engine into the longitudinal DS platform and have it fit under the bonnet. Before installation, the engine was rebuilt for additional power, refinement, and longevity. The 2.5-liter “stroker” crankshaft is micro polished, lightened and balanced, then paired with custom billet pistons and balanced connecting rods. Additional features include a ported-polished head,stainless valves, specially designed cam, custom milled flywheel, and updated turbo. Fueling and ignition are controlled via a standalone Motec M400 ECU, custom adapted with a hall-effect distributor, crank and cam sensors. Custom alloy radiator. 5-speed gearbox has been upgraded with gears made by Hewland. Countless other details ensure a seamless installation that, when the bonnet is closed, allows the car to be virtually indistinguishable from a standard model.
