Ranking alongside the Volkswagen Beetle, Mini, and Land Rover as one of the classic mass-produced cars of the post-war era, Citroën's quirky 2CV debuted in 1949. Intended to provide basic transport in a period of post-war austerity, the 2CV outlived its humble beginnings, going on to attain cult status as the favoured car of the environmentally-concerned motorist. Although the original 375cc air-cooled flat-twin engine grew, eventually, to 602cc, the 2CV's performance remained modest at around 70mph flat-out, not that that concerned the majority of its devotees for whom the roomy interior, full-length sunroof and frugal fuel consumption were of far greater importance.
First registered in the UK in February 1988 and imported to Australia in 2003 when the then owners relocated here, this late model 2CV was initially based in West Australian and more recently registered in New South Wales. The previous owners were enthusiastic members of the 2CV Club of Australia and used the car in various events. Today the 2CV is presented in the 'Beachcomber' colour scheme, with blue decals on white paint, often referred to as the 'France 3'. According to the history file accompanying the car, the 2CV received a new galvanised chassis and was fitted with a reconditioned engine while more recently the car benefitted from a complete overhaul of the carburettor. The Citroën comes with a history file and workshop manual and will be sold registered in NSW.
