The 7S Traction Avant was created with the obvious aim of expanding the range with a more powerful model. Derived from version 7B, it was distinguished by a more powerful 11hp engine. The 7 Sport is very rare in its roadster version. The certificate issued by Citroën Heritage states that this particular car was manufactured on the 12 December 1934. A copy of its old registration document mentions that it was registered in 1954 in the Loir et Cher region, before being bought by an enthusiast from the same district in 1968, and then in 1979 by its current owner. The bodywork was completely stripped before being repainted with an undercoat of epoxy, the entire upholstery was redone, as well as the mechanicals and electricals, entrusted to a Swiss specialist, Mr. Gysin. The rims and the carburetor come from a later version, and an alternator has been installed. The turn indicators and mirrors have been added to comply with the Swiss regulations. In addition to being a very rare Sport version, the car on offer is in a superb condition and runs very well. The car is equipped with an accessory luggage rack and will satisfy the most demanding of enthusiasts.
