Description

Sold without registration papers
Chassis No.: unknown

- Good basis for restoration
- Attractive estimate
- Original engine

Although the appearance of the interior pipe is very similar to the previous B12, the B14 is technically radically different from the 10 HP family. Presented at the Paris 1926 Motor Show, the chassis is lighter, the engine goes from 1,452 to 1,528 cm3 for more flexibility, the gearbox is reinforced and the suspension now uses four semi-elliptical leaf springs, oblique at the rear to improve roadholding. Four foot drum brakes, softened steering and a larger tank complete the picture. Without looking like it, with the B14 F André Citroën takes a big hit on its competition with a very competitive car on the market.... in a few figures, 400 models are released from bleach every day at the end of 1927. Citroën, with a market share of more than 30% of the new car market in just 10 years, is gaining ground over its competitors Renault and Peugeot.
The vehicle presented here is a nice 1926 B14 F. This one comes with an interesting two-seater Coupe bodywork. This B14 comes to us in an original condition that has never been restored. It seems that the bodywork was modified during the war. This car is complete with its original engine N° 9828 as well as a rear spider with bench seat. The interior is period correct and complete, and the general base is very healthy. This B14 is intended today for an amateur who will have the courage to restore it while keeping its unmistakable authenticity.

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.
