Brief History...

Citroen Traction Avant is an executive car (British term for an auto larger than family car) produced by the French from 1934-1957; approx. 760,000 were produced.

The Citroen 11CV Modelwas produced from 1934-1957.

The Citreon's were named according to the French fiscal horsepower rating, or CV. The 11CV was built in 2 versions, the 11BL (light), which was the same size as the 7CV, and the 11B (normal), which had a longer wheelbase and wider track.

Traction Avant translates to Front-Wheel Drive
