The Citroën Traction Avant was a range of mostly 4-door saloons and executive cars, with four or six-cylinder engines, produced by the French manufacturer Citroën from 1934 to 1957.
Whilst front-wheel drive and independent suspension had been well established in the mass market by Auto Union and others some years before, the Traction Avant pioneered mass-production of a crash resistant, unitary, monocoque body. Additionally, the car was also an early adopter of rack and pinion steering.
Although the car's name emphasized its front-wheel drive power delivery ("Traction Avant" literally means “front traction”), the car stood out at least as much by its much lower profile and stance – made possible by the absence of a separate chassis under the car's unitary body – sharply distinguishing it visually from its contemporaries.
In France, the Traction is known as "Reine de la Route" ("Queen of the Road"). The 15 Six was launched in June 1938, it reappeared post-war with a new engine as the 15 Six D.

The owner repaired the car for the purpose of being used in events like weddings, the same as of the 11 BL, being sold by the same owner. It has been always kept in a garage.
