Gateway Classic Cars of Las Vegas is pleased to present a 1953
Citroen Traction Avant in a glossy black with a fresh black
interior with red accent stitching and red carpets showing 42400
miles. The Citroen Traction Avant was a range of mostly four door
saloons and executive cars with either 4- or 6-cylinder engine and
were manufactured between 1934-1957. They were a front wheel drive
with independent suspension design built on a crash resistant
unitary monocoque body with an early adaption of the rack and
pinion design steering. All the models featured front suicide doors
with conventional rear doors. The Traction Avant used a
longitudinal front wheel drive layout with the engine well within
the wheelbase for a favorable weight balance and improved handling.
The gear box was placed in front of the engine with the
differential in between the engine and gearbox. The arrangement of
the gear box resulted in an open floor plan and spacious interior.
Up until 1953 the only color available was black. This example was
restored with the exception being that the engine and transmission
were not rebuilt. It carries a 1911cc 4-cylinder engine with a
three speed manual transmission. The French designed cars from the
1930's to the 1950's carried forward a beautiful Art Deco design
with sweeping lines and fine details that other manufacturers
failed to match. Graceful yet elegant was how French Automobiles
traversed the roads of yesterday. Here is a chance to step back to
a more graceful time of automotive design and travel. This lovely
1953 Citroen Traction Avant can be viewed in greater detail along
with 100+ HD pictures and an HD Video at
