Description

I have owned this 1954 CITROEN 11B NORMALE for nearly 30 years. I acquired it from the second owner who brought it in the early sixties from the town of Avignon in the south of France.
Last registered in California in 1974 this lovely old car has been garaged since it came to Los Angeles 50 years ago. The odometer shows 58465 kms (approx. 36307 miles) and judging from the previous owner's history and the wear on the original pedal rubbers this mileage is probably original. Most "11's" of this period were black but this car was born with the more pleasing optional light gray. Repainted in the mid sixties with a slightly more bluish gray. A few very minor dent and scratches. Optional chrome grill. Original jack and engine crank handle.
This is a totally rust free car that runs and drives fine. Gear shifting on the dash is an acquired art and second gear synchro is a common weakness on the "traction Avant" The shifting works fine but it is advisable to double clutch up and down for a gentle gear change. Many years ago I bought a brand new synchro with gearbox bearings, drive shaft seals, boots and gasket set to have for the future and these parts go with the car.
Included are many new parts. Lots of body rubber, lenses, door handles etc. A "Robbri" license plate accessory and a set of rare optional side vent windows (need chroming, see photo). There is also a brand new front bumper still in wrapping and two new bumper guards. Please check out the photos.
It has been my intention to install these parts and acquire a seat cover kit, door panels and a headliner from France and simply enjoy the car as a pleasant driver. Unfortunately as is often the case some unforeseen health issues have made me re-think my options. This is an exceptionally solid original car that would be hard to duplicate but it is time for me to move on.
You are welcome to visit in Tarzana (San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles). Please call 818 705 8655.
