Perfect working order
High quality restoration

The first Ami 6 was born in April 1961 to fill the gap between the 2CV and the DS 19. It looks more like a great 2CV. Its chassis comes directly from the 2CV, whose suspension and flat twin-cylinder engine are air-cooled but pushed to 602 cc, for 3 tax hp. The originality of the Ami 6, whose name is already a play on words, the Missis, is expressed in its design by Flaminio Bertoni, with its inverted rear window allowing a unique interior and comfort on board in its time.
The model prented here is a 1963 sedan. It is painted in Golf Yellow reference AC 312 and equipped with the inside red holly leaf. It was sold new in April 1963 in Holland where it stayed until a famous antique car dealer brought it back to Burgundy. It was then that the collector Mr R acquired it and began to restore it in 2011. The bodywork was a little tired and had some bumps, but the base was very healthy. The restoration was entrusted to a Citroën dealer in the Paris region who carefully redone the paint in this delightfully sixties shade. The interior has been refurbished while respecting the original one. The mechanics did not require any major work and was overhauled. Today it works perfectly and allows the little Citroën to reach 110 km/h without trouble! The master cylinder is new and so is the 6-volt battery. The roadworthiness test is up to date and valid. Recently, this charming AMI 6 was selected by the Citroën brand for the 100th anniversary of the "Born in Paris" exhibition in June, where it was a great success. This friendly 6 sedan, although manufactured in very large quantities, are rare vehicles in good condition and have disappeared from French roads for too long. This is the opportunity to buy a car in perfect condition, with an offbeat style!

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.
