In the 20 years of production of the D models, there have been some changes in technology. The engines ranged from 75-130 hp and grew from 1.9L displacement to up to 2.3L displacement and electronic injection between 1955-1975. Basically, all engine versions are robust and have a good torque. As the D models are relatively light, the engine power is still sufficient in today’s standards and you can drive the vehicles every day.
The most popular engine variant is the 2.1L engine. It has about 100hp, is robust and usually consumes between 9-10L petrol per 100km. We always overhaul every engine completely. The crankshafts are also fine balanced. This improves the engine run clearly, compared to the factory delivery.
When cables are over 50 years old, they are often fragile and then the power supply becomes unreliable. Troubleshooting is no fun for anyone. That is why we always install new cable harnesses with every restoration. This ensures that you can rely on your D-model every day.
The D-models were technical masterpieces in the 50s to 70s, in the 20 years of their production many technical improvements have been incorporated. Today you can profit from them. We can freely assemble and approve engines, transmissions, gears, and hydraulics according to your wishes. Let us advise you.
