1973 Citroën AZU Serie B 2CV van project

Reluctantly selling this project to fund the restoration of our yellow/black Charleston.
It’s an ex EDF/GDF AZU serie B, so originally 435cc, although it now has a 602cc Acadiane engine and disc brake gearbox loosely fitted. Will all need to come apart to be fitted and renovated properly. It’s been off the road and dry stored since 1999/2000. French papers, but not in my name
I planned to rebuild it as a small ripple van, so it comes with all necessary panels for that, including NOS genuine rear wings, a choice of rear doors (large square windows or the small oval ones fitted), and several spare wheel covers.
The chassis is very solid, with the exception of one small patch underneath which will need repair. As usual for a 2CV the floors and toe board will need repair or replacement. It also needs a repair to the leading edge of the load bed, behind the seats. Inner rear wings and the rest of the load bed look fine from the outside – can’t tell from the inside as the bed has been lined with fibreglass. Body is generally good, doors are very good (fronts will need attention where someone’s bolted mirrors through them, but the lower edges are near perfect), windscreen surround and bonnet hinge are good, bonnet and wings are solid.
Rear brakes and master cylinder will need converting to LHM to use the disc brake gearbox (easy on this as it has the same rear axle/pipe arrangement as LHM, with no flexible hoses). You’ll also need to modify the handbrake mechanism. Otherwise it comes with an AK400 drum brake gearbox as well, and brand new brake linings and handbrake cables. It’ll also come with any other parts I find lying about and won’t need for the Charleston.
Many more photos available on demand.
Located in Normandy, France, about 1h30 from Cherbourg or Caen, 4h from Dieppe (cheaper!). Can possibly arrange transport to UK. Can also put you in touch with a specialist to sort import paperwork and registration (£100).
All questions welcome.
