The Citroen Dyane 6 history
The Citroën Dyane is an economy car
produced by the French automaker Citroën from 1967 to 1983. The design
was based on the Citroën 2CV platform. Nearly 1,4m were manufactured.
The "Confort" version was differentiated from the outside through the inclusion of hub-caps on the wheels. The spare wheel and jack were mounted in a special cradle under the hood (rather than both simply being placed loose on the floor of the luggage area at the back). The interior of the "Confort" was slightly less basic, with plastic moulded door panels rather than flat, vinyl covered hardboard.
On this 1976 version, there are 3-point seat belts at the front and two point seat belts at the rear.
The suspension is the ultimate confort with hydraulic dampers.
Improved 602cc 2 cylinders flat twin air cooling engine featuring higher compression pistons and forced
induction from the engine fan giving slightly more power. Mechanical contact-breakers were
mounted at the front of the camshaft and located behind the cooling fan.
The fan was mounted on a tapered shaft at the
bottom of a deep tube (the top of which engaged the starter handle).
32 hp @ 5750 tr/min - maximum speed 75mph.
Acceleration from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 30.8 seconds.
