1979 Citroën 2cv For Sale

£12,995 Lincoln ref # C4S-26609

This Citroen 2cv has been lovingly restored to a very high standard and will provide an excellent everyday classic or show car, which is economical and fun to drive.

The 2cv is a RHD, T registered 1979 model in the original blue Azurite with a grey interior and matching fabric hood. The 2cv is MOT and tax exempt and comes with a V5C registration document and MOT.

The designer of the 2cv was Flaminio Bertoni who also designed the Traction Avant and DS.

All three cars were extremely important for the development and reputation of Citroen. The 2cv was first displayed at the Paris Motor Show in Paris in 1948.

Many hours have been spent rebuilding the 2cv sympathetically to a very high standard. I have rebuilt many classic Citroens (and other classic cars), the previous cars have gone to very satisfied classic car lovers and gone on to win awards at shows. I’ve enjoyed and taken pride in rebuilding it and it will give me further enjoyment to see it used, loved and cared for. I am sure this 2cv will provide joy to the new owner, just like my Citroens have done for me over the past 35 years.

I have grown up with classic Citroens with my father having them throughout my life. I’m a classic Citroen enthusiast and have been in the 2cvGB club for many years. I have rebuilt many Citroens in the past and won awards for them. I’m passionate about Classic Citroens and get excited when I see one on the road.

This is part of my motivation to maintain and restore these cars: to keep them on the road, and for people to enjoy driving and seeing them.
