Evaluation: Restored in 2012 and7000 km ago with overhauled engine, refurbished chassis and body, new interior and new roof, but no documents to back this up. Discoloration on the carb and very old-looking manifolds but mostly tidy and redone engine bay. Good-looking body and roof. Like-new seats. A charming deux chevaux in more than good enough shape to enjoy.
Bottom Line: The Citroën’s 2CV is so minimalistic that even the “range-topping” Charleston model amounted to no more than fancy paint and a handful of extra horsepower. That said, the Art Deco-inspired two-tone paint is stylish, and every pony counts with a maximum performance of 29hp. There is no shortage of old 2CVs on the market in Europe and especially France, but this car is better than most and deserved at least another round of bidding.
