If you wish to see photographs and descriptions of any, or all, of the models in the Matra range, rather than duplicating a lot of the work done by Lennart Sorth from Denmark and a Murena 1.9 owner, I feel I can do no better than link you to the wealth of information on his web pages.
Whilst the Murena was originally available with Talbot 1.6 or 2.2 litre engines, some of the 1.6 Simca 1307/1308 or Talbot Alpine/Solara engined cars have been modified to take the later and more powerful carburettor or fuel injected 8- or 16-valve Peugeot XU engines similar to those used in the 205GTi.
Lennart's car is a fuel injected 8 valve conversion. More details on his website. (The following links will take you away from my website)

MPV or People Carriers:
There was a Matra Register in the USA a few years back, but it no longer exists.
