In this particular case, we are no longer talking about the car but about myth and perhaps the art of living. The Citroën 2CV owes its birth to a visionary named Pierre-Jules Boulanger. A brilliant concept, it is a simple and robust car requiring very little maintenance. Its origins date back to the 1930s when Citroën engineers launched a project for a T.P.V. (Very Small Car). It is supported by figures such as Flaminio Bertoni and André Lefebvre. It is not uncommon to wait several years before taking possession of a car, as the order book is so full. Stopped in 1990 after a 42-year career, the production of this French automotive myth amounted to more than five million units and is still the sixth best-selling French car today. The 2CV presented here was first put into circulation in 1961. Painted in the magnificent mist green colour specific to those years of production, the interior is in red leatherette. The car was in the hands of the same owner for several decades and was used for short trips around his village and on his property. The collector and current owner bought it last year and put the Citroën back on the road: restarting the engine, cleaning the tank and cleaning the new tyres after a period of immobilisation. The car is incredibly healthy and has only charming surface corrosion. The interior is in original new condition and everything suggests that the car's mileage is very low. Never restored and a real "time capsule" as the English say, this 2CV can be used as such and will be admired during the rides at the wheel.
