Standard French title
Chassis No 00EA0039
The personal car of company founder Henri Heuliez, and driven everyday by Henri hence the mileage of 87.059km, Repainted in the Heuliez corporate colour blue (All other M35 remained officially grey) The powerful, high-performance single rotor engine of the M35 provided 49bhp DIN at 5,500 rpm, and mated to a four-speed gearbox, the top speed was 144 km/h. The car's extraordinary acceleration was achieved with a high level of comfort.
A few examples not returned by their keepers survived the massacre, including the one offered here, Henri Heuliez' personal car. One of the rare M35s that had been saved, it is thought that less than 50 examples survive today.
The vehicle, with 87,059 km on the odometer, is cosmetically presented in good, used condition, and comes with its normal grey card. What a rare opportunity this is to buy a running prototype whose previous single owner played a major part in the history of the French automobile.
