PM Engines

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1920s by P. Madoz
In 1924 the firm was advertised as Moussard-Madoz marketing a 175cc two-stroke.

The engines were fitted to the Italian Navone during the late 1920s, the Utilia from France, Claude Delage, Orion and others. Magda of Angers offered a model with a 350cc Moussard engine.

There was a cyclecar named the Madoz built in Nanterre, Paris, in 1921 with a 175cc two-stroke engine.
It is unclear whether sidevalve PM engines were also built.
