1987 CITROEN 2 CV6 2CV6 Special - £7,500 ono
Recent ground-up restoration including new galvanised chassis, all stainless steel nuts & bolts, no expense spared with top quality parts used throughout. This 2CV had covered just 48,000 miles before being taken off the road in around 2002, when it stood dormant until just last year when it was fully stripped, restored and rebuilt including:
New genuine Michelin steel wheels & period-correct tyres.
New bumpers front & back, with matching over-riders up front.
New UK-manufactured galvanised chassis, stainless steel fittings throughout.
All suspension & steering stripped, refurbished and repainted before reassembly.
New correct shock absorbers fitted.
Braking system fully rebuilt including new brake lines throughout.
New 'Matt's soft tops' canvas hood & heated rear screen - top quality.
Full new exhaust system front to back with all new fittings.
Original matching numbers engine & gearbox fully checked and serviced.
Now 100% solid and rust free with chassis & underside fully protected.
MOT'd until August 2018, covered under classic insurance policy.
Whilst a few panels & repaired areas required new paint during the restoration, much of the original paint has been revived with a good polish & wax. As such, there are some signs of character here and there which add to the honest and genuine feel of the car. The original rubber floor mats are present on the interior & show barely any signs of wear. The original cloth seats are very presentable with no rips or tears, though these are 30 years old. Seatbelts front & back, easily seats 4 adults - especially fun with the roof rolled all the way back!
We recently took the 2CV on a 2 week holiday from Kent down to the South of France, covering nearly 2,000 miles without missing a beat. It cruises along very comfortably and is great fun on twisty roads with its characteristic Citroen handing! Copes surprisingly well with motorway cruising and averages over 40mpg.
Very reluctant sale due to impending house purchase, any inspection welcome.
