– Only one colour was initially offered when the car came on the scene in 1948, it was grey. A second colour was offered since 1959: blue.
– The engine did not even include a distributor; instead, there was a coil that fired the spark plugs, it had a four-speed manual gearbox and it was "fed" by a Solex carburetor.
– There was one spring on each side of the car which made up the vehicles suspension and drum brakes all-around.
– The eccentric car offered innovations such as a built-in jacking system and the flexibility of movable seating surfaces.
– The ability to remove the seats and panels created extra room for larger objects, while the canvas roof extends to the bumper.
– The cenrtifugaal clutch is designed for city use. You can drive off in 1st or 2nd gear. The AZ is now driving like an automatic.
– The AZ has two horns: one for city use and a louder horn for outside the city.
