By 1928, Citroën had become the number one French automobile manufacturer with a total production volume of nearly 300,000 units. A great admirer of Henry Ford and the American manufacturing methods, André Citroën had built his plants with the idea of mass production and he was also the first in France to adopt the newer concept of all-steel bodywork. When launching the AC4, this system was already well developed and the teething problems of the B10 had been resolved. With its lower body and big hood, this car launched in 1928 would take the carmaker into the following decade, as a true commercial success, with a total production of over 240,000 units.

Purchased in 1972 by André Trigano, this AC4 limousine was in the hands of its previous owner since 1967. An early restoration that is well preserved, it has bumpers and the counter displays 94,301 km. The chromes are in used condition and some aesthetic details may need to be improved, but the car is sound and complete. The interior has been redone and the dashboard is in good condition, equipped with its original instruments including the drum style counter, an originality of this model. It is very complete, with a clock, an oil pressure gauge and a fuel gauge. This sober car, in a limousine version, is a typical representative of Citroën from the era when it was transiting from the simplicity of the 1920s to the maturity of the 1930s.
