From the few registration dates I have collected, you chassis number would seem to be  a 1977 model, from the registration number is was registered in the Creuse in 1978.  I'm guessing it was originally the mustard yellowy colour?
search facebook there's a group there in english and another 2 based in italy, easily to respond rather than being asking if I eat rocks...
RUMCar News / RCN 140
« Last Post by Jean on March 12, 2019, 05:18:58 PM »
The latest Rumcar News dropped unexpectedly on my door step on Monday 11th March pm.  I knew it was on its way because already someone had rung me to buy the Lawrie Bond book.   The RCN is the very best of all places to sell items, they reach the enthusiasts first.
Once again Chris has done a superb job, something for all tastes I feel.  I look forward to reading it in detail at my leisure.
Thank you  Chris and all of you who contributedt to this latest edition.  When I produced the first issue I never imagined that it would grow and grow into such a great internationally sort after publication.  Thank you everyone who has contributed to its growth, improvement and success over the  last 35 years.   Jean

Good morning all.

I've noticed a bit of talk relating to FMO 106 & what may have happened to it after it's sale last year. Well it's still in the UK, & is currently in my workshop undergoing a full restoration.

As it's known to a few of you, both myself & it's owner would be very interested to hear of any of it's history. It's in pretty good order, & has had some relatively recent work, as there's a new piston in the engine. However a lot of it appears to be as it left the factory, or very old at least....Yesterday's gearbox overhaul involved cleaning out some ancient & rather rancid grease! :-)

It should be finished within the next couple of months, & if I can work out how I'll post a couple of pictures of it.


Unusual Microcar Discussion / Argson information.
« Last Post by Bdog507 on February 18, 2019, 09:38:35 AM »
Good morning all.

I've been lurking on & off this forum for a year or two, as I've always had an interest in the unusual cars that have been produced over the years, & this seems like a good place to start.

I've just purchased an Argson model 44 that I intend to restore to it's former glory, & I would like to ask for any information that may be of assistance, particularly regarding the electrical side.

Some of you may be familiar with my vehicle, as it's been up for sale online a couple of times within the last few years. Rather annoyingly when it was sold in 2010 it was complete with it's hood, & had a handbook & wiring diagram, yet when sold in 2014, & again in 2017 the hood & frame were missing, & now the handbook & wiring diagram are absent too.
