Ranking alongside the Volkswagen Beetle, Mini and Land Rover as one of the classic mass-produced cars of the post-war era, Citroën's quirky 2CV debuted in 1949. Intended to provide basic transport in a period of post-war austerity, the 2CV outlived its humble beginnings, going on to attain cult status as the favoured car of the environmentally concerned motorist. Although the original 375cc air-cooled flat-twin engine grew, eventually, to 602cc, the 2CV's performance remained modest at around 70mph flat-out, not that that concerned the majority of its devotees for whom the roomy interior, full-length sunroof and frugal fuel consumption were of far greater importance. By the time production ceased in 1990 more than 5 million 2CVs of all types had been made.

This delightful example was registered in 1987 and presents well in gleaming white coachwork with Bentley style quilted seats. This iconic French car benefitted from restoration in 2019.You cannot help but smile as you drive a 2CV and everyone tends to smile back at you. This is an inexpensive opportunity to own one of the most recognisable classic cars in the world. Consigned by Dominic Lake.
