1976 Citroen 2CV
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Unfortunately the last owner was a bit foggy on some specifics but this is the best I can offer to a prospective buyer: a beautiful absolutely rust free example that appears to have been restored by a 2CV expert in Quebec. Fresh engine (have receipts for near $7,000) but not sure if it is the original 435cc or a later 602cc engine. Either way, flat two cylinder, air cooled, and somewhere between 24hp (the 435), 35hp (602) or 29hp (as represented to me by the last owner). Either way, it just smoothly sails along with a top speed somewhere around 60mph. Or, in 'metric' around 100 kms.
Body is excellent, floors are perfect, paint (in a deep gray) is beautiful, all new interior, fabric top, wiring, electrics, trim, rust free trunk floor, it is fairly close to looking 'as new.' And starts instantly, runs very well, effortless shifting (4 speed with overdrive top gear), incredibly good ride, effortless shifing, adorable folding side windows, inertial reel belts, twin circuit brakes, electric cooling fan for hot weather 'round town driving, and 125-15 tires. And a convertible top/full sunroof that opens easily.
I guess it is a case of you love it or you don't. But, out of sheer coincidence, we now have three open classic cars that seat four....a British Morris Minor convertible, a German VW Super Beelte cabriolet, and this French Citroen 2CV. Take your pick.
(and yes, parts are easily ordered from a number of parts suppliers in both the USA and Canada. Car comes with a Haynes repair manual, add a set of metric tools and keeping this car running and driving should be within the skill level of most lawn mower mechanics)
