Description

French registration
Chassis # 573454

- No reserve
- A custom job
- Unique
- Incredible work on the upholstery

Once its teething problems were resolved, the dynamics of the Citroen Traction Avant asserted the car's superiority and that kept the product going till 1955, before fading away to another revolution on wheels, the Citroen DS. But then that's another story ...
This Traction 11 BL "Punch" has undergone a custom conversion, which makes it a very exclusive car. It was unearthed by our collector when the car was on show for many years in a museum dedicated to mainly motorcycles in Southern France. For the exterior paint, a cream and brown two-tone theme was chosen after the body had been completely stripped and the interior was done in assorted colours. The seats are upholstered in brown leather with white piping, the door panels receiving the same leather with exposed seams.
