For Sale: 1975 Citroen 2CV in Alsip, Illinois

Vehicle Description

The Citroen 2CV (or "Deux Chevaux") as a French Volkswagen beetle. These cars have the same simplicity and utility as the beetle's but with a French flair. The build quality is not at all the same as that of the beetle, but the Citroen is an iconic car that generates more smiles per mile than almost any car I can think of. These cars are a wonderful entry point to French collector cars, and they are the simplest cars in the world on which to work. You can remove the two-cylinder engine by yourself, not with a lift but simply by picking it up

Parts availability is excellent and Citroens have a strong club community and put on a number of great meets each year.

The feeling while driving these cars is unlike any other car. They are softly suspended to the point that speed bumps are barely detectable. This is probably due to part of the one of their oddest original-design specs, that the 2CV be able to carry a dozen eggs across a farmer's plowed field without breaking any. The 2CV also needed to carry four adults in comfort, something that, amazingly, the tiny 2CV does easily.

At any car show, these funny cars tend to attract kids and adults more than other cars with many times their value. The 2CVs are fun to drive and handle well despite more body lean than any other car on the planet.

The engine is no speed demon but it is capable of getting the car to 65 miles per hour and delivering amazing fuel economy at the same time.

This gorgeous little 2CV Was totally restored, top to bottom, very solid and rust free, during the restoration process, body was taken apart, painted in urethane over a rust free body, all new wiring and weatherstripping, rebuilt engine and transmission along with suspension and brakes.
New complete interior with a new canvas top was also installed, correct floor mat, restored dash showing only just a bit over 16,XXX Kilometers.

Once this little car was fully restored it was then placed in an Oklahoma RT66 museum, where it was on display for many years until the museum closed in late 2018.
It is now available to be enjoyed at car shows and cruise nights.
