1988 CITROEN 2CV DOLLY EDITION
The superb 2CV was sold in many iterations from 1948 – 1990 (about 3.8 million were sold). Here is the Speciale / Dolly version which favoured bright colour schemes – this one in red and white. The canvas roof is the quality Matt’s Soft Tops version (UK).
I have fond memories of driving a new 2CV around Europe in 1985 and clearly remember seeing 110 km/h on the speedo one day – and that was downhill with a tail breeze.
The 2CV’s simplicity and lightweight design resulted in a fuel-efficient low-cost car which sold well from the outset. The engine is air-cooled with just 2 cylinders. It has a magnificent ride via long suspension travel – Citroen designers were apparently given the brief that this vehicle should be capable of traversing a ploughed field at speed with a basket full of fresh unbroken eggs – Citroen was tempting farmers away from the horse and cart.
This 2CV is now registered in South Australia having completed the compliance procedure. It is ready to go.
I can see this 2CV Dolly attracting a lot of interest – perhaps as a promotional car for a business. It’s an iconic car which is admired on every trip so be prepared to answer questions and engage in conversation wherever you go.
Now on display in our new showroom.
