Footnotes

  • Founded in 1919, Citroën introduced its first commercial vehicle at the end of 1921. This small truck used the Type A passenger car chassis and could carry a payload of up to 300kg. The following year two more light utility models were offered: the Boulangère and the Normande, both of which were based on the B2 production car chassis. This policy of producing car-chassied commercial vehicles continued throughout the 1920s and by the start of the Thirties decade Citroën had come to dominate the home market, selling some 40% of France’s commercial vehicles. The firm’s first purpose-built truck that was not based on an existing passenger car – the Type 45 – arrived in 1933, boasting a payload of 4.5 tons.
    The left-hand drive Citroën Type 23R truck offered here is one of the History on Wheels Museum’s most famous exhibits, having played a prominent role in two of the ‘Indiana Jones’ movies: ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ (1981) and ‘The Last Crusade’ (1989) as well as appearing in the television series ‘Agatha Christie’s Poirot’ (see pictures on file). Described as in running condition, the vehicle is offered with sundry invoices and French Certificat d’Immatriculation.
