Description

French historic registration papers
Chassis No.: 176586

- Great quality restoration
- Rare model with visible springs
- In accordance with its factory shipment

Over the course of its long career, the legendary 2CV will be equipped with different types of suspension, until it adopts an amazing spring system for only a few months. This real rolling prototype will only be produced on the 1955 model year.
The charming 2CV presented here is part of the extremely rare series of sedans equipped with visible springs during the 1955 model year. Put into circulation in January 1955, it was completely restored in accordance with the rules of the art a few years ago. The bodywork completely dismantled, the chassis separated and then treated against corrosion. The engine was also dismantled and very recently the centrifugal clutch was rebuilt. The current collector being concerned about the authenticity of his cars, this one is perfectly in conformity with his factory exit. According to the great 2 HP specialist, Antoine Demetz, his engine is the original one. This one holds the inventory of the models with apparent springs and counts to date about sixty copies. During the test over some twenty kilometres, the small Citroën proved to be brave and in top form. The centrifugal clutch works perfectly and the brakes are effective. It is a practically new car, as if it had just left the factory, which is offered here for sale. An opportunity not to be missed.

This car will be sold by auction by AGUTTES Auction House, in La Ferté-Vidame, at the Citroën Centenary, France, on July the 21th, 2019.
