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 B14 presented here is a model put into circulation in June 1928. According to the documents provided with the car, it was in the Albi region when it changed hands in 1968. It was then registered as 77 BR 81. It is bought by Mr. Delbreil who keeps it until 2005! The car was then found by Mr. W while it was registered under number 373 CR 09. It is still in a very interesting state of preservation today. The upholstery is still the original one, kept under 1930s covers! What an incredible fragrance emanating from this interior! The car is perfectly authentic and has never been restored. Its engine is still the original one and the body number is visible on the door sill. It is an excellent restaurant base offered here for sale, which deserves to be preserved in its original juice by restoring only the mechanics.

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.
