The Citroën 2CV (French Deux chevaux "two horsepower"), usually called Ente in Germany and Austria and Döschwo in Switzerland, was a popular model of the car manufacturer Citroën with an air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine and front-wheel drive.

Between the summer of 1949 and mid-1990, 3,868,631 four-door sedans and 1,246,335 vans ("Kastenente") were produced. From 1960 to 1968 (and 1971), 694 examples of the Sahara "4×4" version with two engines and four-wheel drive, also called "Bimoteur", introduced in 1958, were built.

The previous owner found the car as a one-owner car in 2014 in the Drôme countryside in France. It was parked in a barn with grains of wheat, old candles and a lucky horseshoe!

It was secured and lightly overhauled.

Here are some pictures of the car when it was registered with "LE CLUB DES 2CV A CAPOT ONDULE".
The 2CV seems to have been built on April 12, 1960.
It was delivered with optional equipment. The 2CV has a system for opening the trunk lid, which opens the rear window and thus the rear part of the hood.
This Citroen 2CV is in very original condition and was well maintained before being purchased by a German collector. Necessary parts have been overhauled like the seat covers. It runs nice and smooth as a Citroen 2CV should.
