Description

Thank you for looking, again, at this auction of my 1962 Citroen 2CV. Had to cancel the last auction to allow more time for visitors and receive a copy of the title.
The previous owner spent a lot of money restoring it and it's a beauty. Is it perfect like coming out of the factory, no. If that's what you want, there's a place in NY who will be happy to build you a brand new one for $20-30k. You are bidding on a 53 year old car, restoration was extensive but perfect? No. It does need a couple things before it's 100% done, please see Item condition section.
I'm not going to spend much time on describing what this car is about, I believe that if you're looking at this auction, you're doing it with a purpose, knowing pretty much everything there is to know about these cars and their historical importance as the 2CV and the DS both made it in top 10 most influential cars of the 20th century..
However, I'll be happy to answer any question you might have.
Why am I selling? Excellent question. Life happened, I used to drive this 2cv around with my kids for icecream or to a park, divorce took care of that. Change of job makes it now challenging to drive it to work so, I'm thinking that the time is right for someone else to enjoy it the way it deserves. It's a real joy to drive and the most fun you can have at 45 mph.
I bought this car 3 years ago, fell in love at first sight. It had been restored by previous owner, records show that over $17 700 were spent in the prior year of me purchasing it and it shows, this "Deuche" looks REALLY good. As nice as it is, these items still need sorted out:
1) Purchase the 2 rear/side turn signal lenses (lost in transport) $80 unpainted
2) a couple of hardware pieces to keep the top folded $50?
3) the headlights reflectors chrome is pitted which makes driving at night a real challenge. Period headlights are next to impossible to get and about $600 IF you get lucky to find a set. You could put a "modern set" for about $200 or do like me, drive something else at night ;-)
4) engine drips a couple drops here and there when idling.
5) parking brake needs adjusted
During my ownership, all I had to do was get the starter overhauled and get a new battery.
Engine tag says"AZ" 2CH#02603591. Frame tags say Type AZ model 2CH #8531366
The car will come with a spare ignition coil, uninstalled electronicignition module, a full cover and repair parts manuals in both frenchand English.
I'm not able to upload any more pictures on this auction so pleasemessage me your email address should you wish pictures of records or anyother area of concern.
Again, thanks forall your interest, bid high and bid often, whoever wins this car will be very happy. Reserve isway below expenses and it's more than very fair for such an early model year andcondition.
