For sale Citroen 2cv series one original red and grey Dolly, one of 400 made in this fantastic colour scheme.
This is a rare original series one red and grey colour scheme possibly the most attractive of all the Dolly colours that were available at the time and produced for one year (1985). There’s no definitive answer as to how many RHD examples were produced but estimates put the number somewhere around 250 to 400 cars, very few originals now remain.
The standard 2cv specification of 602cc engine, manual gearbox, Grey fabric interior. Michelin 125 x 15 tyres fitted to white wheels as all Dolly’s were when new with immaculate wheel trims.
As a full ground up restoration every part has been removed, inspected, replaced or refurbished, it has had around 1000 man hours put in to it including welding, paint and then final assembly. It is as close to original showroom specification as you can get along with a couple of modern upgrades Galvanised chassis, 123 ignition system and dry resign coil, burton shock absorbers, all brake components and correct seating fabric and rubbers make the ride as perfect as it ever was.
Many hours of research went in to building the car to get the details exactly right such as the wording Dolly in the decals being the correct grey.
We have been restoring 2cvs and derivatives for over 35 years with a total of over 20 cars saved and restored to complete beautiful and sympathetic examples of the amazing French marque.
