The Citroën 2CV or 'deux chevaux' (two horsepower) was an
economy car produced by the French car maker from 1948 to 1990. It
was technologically innovative but uncompromisingly utilitarian and
of unconventional looks. Its deceptively simple Bauhaus inspired
bodywork belied the sheer quality of its underlying engineering. It
was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts
and is considered one of Citroën's most iconic cars. In 1953
'Autocar' wrote a technical review of the car, stating ...the
extraordinary ingenuity of this design, which is undoubtedly the
most original since the Model T Ford…. It was described by CAR
magazine journalist and author L. Setright as the most intelligent
application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car.

First registered on 29th October 1987, this charming 2CV has,
throughout its life, remained in the north Cambridgeshire area and
was owned by only two owners in the last 32 years. The vendor
reports that the car retains its original chassis which is in good
condition and the car has no rust. Supplied with an MoT test
certificate valid until 16th May, 2017 and showing some 44,600
miles, you cannot help but smile as you drive and, interestingly,
everyone tends to smile back at you; a wonderful way to own one of
the most iconic classic cars in the world. Offered at no
