For Sale: 1953 Citroen Traction Avant in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

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.
