A brilliant concept, the Citroën 2 CV is a simple and robust car that requires little maintenance. Its origin dates back to the 1930s when Pierre Jules Boulanger, the brand's engineer, launched a POS project: Toute Petite Voiture. He is assisted by the genius draughtsman Flaminio Bertoni and André Lefèvre. The Second World War stopped the project and development did not resume until 1946, on the Ferté Vidame track. The rest we all know it, and after 42 years of career, it is one of the most famous cars in the world.
The story of this 2CV is a fairy tale. It all starts with an ad in the famous newspaper La Vie de L'Auto dated January 1998 where it says: "For sale 2cv. Last model, new 0 km, make an offer "The current owner then contacts the seller and after a few minutes of conversation, the latter asks him what colour he wants his car in? The question is surprising and he will admit to owning different models of 2 new CVs. So he owns 15 small Citroëns in new condition! The reason is simple: This one, a great fan of vintage cars, bought all his 2 hp when he learned that Citroën was going to stop production. There are 15 of them because that's how many grandchildren he is lucky enough to have in his family! All cars were started once a year with an external battery and the cars had never received license plates! When small children reach the age of their driving licence, they are more interested in the 205 GTIs or motorcycles than in these small cars that are not very modern for their taste. Sadly, the owner collector decides to sell them but keeps one for his wife. This is how the ad appears in the LVA newspaper. Mr. R then tells his friends about it and will come back to buy five. When picking up the cars, the driver will choose the one with the fewest kilometres on the meter. Finally he booked a 2 hp Bleu Lavande with 48 kilometers and left with another Bleu Lavande with only 9 kilometers. The car was put on set and sent to Holland. A pallet will be built for her and will sit in the collector's factory hall for nearly 20 years, above ground and protected from daylight. It still has all its factory stickers and chalk marks. It has never been started either, but the motor runs by crank at least once a year to avoid erasing itself. The current collector, Mr. R, says that the water from the windscreen washer is original, as well as the engine oil! The original documents are all present, as well as the logbook, the double keys... It is most probably the 2CV with the fewest kilometres on the original counter in the world. It is a truly unique museum piece and must continue its life in a collection of an experienced amateur.
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.
