Sold in aid of the Animal Rescue Centre, Ghent 1980 Citröen Acadiane (Dyane 6) Van Registration no. not UK registered Chassis no. AY-CD 00CD7537
Introduced in 1967, the Dyane was a revised, enlarged, and more streamlined version of the immortal 2CV, the latter ranking alongside the Volkswagen Beetle, Mini, and Land Rover as one of the classic mass-produced cars of the post-war era. The duo shared essentially the same engines and running gear, though the 435cc Dyane 4 was a one-year-only car in the UK, all others sold here after 1968 being the 602cc Dyane 6. The 2CV6's and Dyane 6's performance remained modest at around 70mph flat-out, not that that concerned the majority of their devotees for whom the roomy interior, full-length sunroof, and frugal fuel consumption were of far greater importance.
Built in Spain and sold in Belgium and other countries as the 'Acadiane', this left-hand drive Citroën van was acquired many years ago by the late Roger Schepens, a Belgian 'carrossier' who restored the vehicle himself some time ago. It was in regular use up until the time of Roger's death towards the end of 2016 and has not been driven since. Offered with Belgian registration papers.
