History of the Amilcar M
The Amilcar M is a mid-sized car that was manufactured between 1928 and 1935. The bulk of the cars used the boxy four-door "Berline" body type that was popular in the late 1920s. In the years following World War I, Amilcar had established a reputation and market share as a manufacturer of cyclecars (small two-seater cars that allowed for a low car tax), but as consumer spending power increased in the late 1920s, the company's attempts to expand upmarket were largely unsuccessful.
The Type M inherited the bulk of its mechanical components from the Type L, including the Type L's 4 cylinder 1244cc side-valve engine, which produced 27 horsepower. The highest speed fluctuated depending on the body's weight and design, with a reported top speed of 68 mph. The power from the front-mounted engine was sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. Front and rear leaf springs were paired with Hartford dampers for the suspension.
