Matra Rancho

Matra Rancho 1982

Usually I have time to make at least a few pictures of a car. With the Rancho I didn’t. I purchased it on Tuesday and it was towed away on Thursday night. So the only thing that remains is the brochure.

  • Purchased May 11th, 1999.
  • Odometer reading unknown.
  • Sold May 14th, 1999.
  • Current odometer reading unknown += 150 km.
  • L4 petrol engine (Simca T315 6Y2).
  • Displacement 1442 cc with a carburetor
  • Valve train SOHC 8 valve
  • Max power 80 bhp @ 5600 rpm
  • Max torque 117 NM @ 3000 rpm
  • Four speed manual transmission
  • Front wheel drive

This car didn’t have standard equipment worth mentioning. The list in the brochure lists things like warning lights, seat belts ( only in front), a lighter, a heated rear window and things like that.
