About this Citroen 2 CV A Series

A masterpiece of minimalist design, the 1948 2CV was made from mostly flat stamped panels, was cheap and easy to repair and held together with just 16 bolts! The roof and (initially) the boot lid were made of canvas. Even after the original 375cc air-cooled flat-twin had grown to 425cc and then 602cc, performance still remained modest at around 70mph flat-out, not that this was of any concern to the majority of it's devotees for whom the roomy interior, full-length sunroof and frugal fuel consumption were of far greater importance. It was a massive success, transforming the lives of the rural poor and over 3.8 million examples were sold before production finally came to an end in 1990. This lovely late 1957 AZLP model retains the charismatic ‘ripple bonnet’ and was acquired by the previous owner in 2004 to use at his French home in the Dordogne. It had already been fully restored, its current condition being testament to the quality of that work, which was completed over 16 years ago. He bought the car back to the UK to enjoy here in 2015, where it has remained part of a collection of beautifully maintained classics. Any service and repair work required has been undertaken by local Citroen specialist Pete Sparrow, who over the years has fitted electronic ignition, a replacement (correct) three-stud manifold and new seat covers front and rear. It has a correct 425cc engine, which is the original to the car and retains the centrifugal clutch system which is great fun and a doddle to use. The history file includes the V5C, some old French registration documents and bills for the work done since it arrived in the UK in 2015. It is on the button and in regular use and only for sale due to lack of space and the previous owner's obsession with another ‘peoples car’, this time from Germany!
