Description for Citroën 1962

The Citron 2CV (French: deux chevaux i.e. deux chevaux-vapeur, lit. two steam horses, two tax horsepower) is an air-cooled front-engine, front-wheel-drive economy car introduced at the 1948 Paris Mondial de lAutomobile and manufactured by Citron for model years 1948-990. Conceived by Citron Vice-President Pierre Boulanger to help motorise the large number of farmers still using horses and carts in 1930s France, the 2CV has a combination of innovative engineering and utilitarian, straightforward metal bodywork - initially corrugated for added strength without added weight. The 2CV featured low cost, simplicity of overall maintenance, an easily serviced air-cooled engine (originally offering 9 hp), low fuel consumption, and an extremely long-travel suspension offering a soft ride and light off-road capability. Often called an umbrella on wheels, the fixed-profile convertible bodywork featured a full-width, canvas, roll-back sunroof, which accommodated over sized loads and until 1955 reached almost to the cars rear bumper. FULLY REFURBISHED 1985. Recent (two years) new top, seat covers, correct hubcaps, new MICHELIN tires, paint, battery. Runs perfectly with no issues.
