Known History

As Peugeot CitroŽn DS Adventure have confirmed, this 11BL left the factory on 9 October 1951, and still has its original mechanicals. Purchased in the CŰte dīOr in 1994 by the current owner, it still had its original registration number: 301 Y 21, and had covered just over 92,000 km. The car is very well preserved, the bodywork has been repainted in its original colour, glossy black. Sound and well aligned overall, it only has a few small corrosion bubbles at the bottom of the doors. The chrome is slightly disfigured but can be saved with a little elbow grease. The cloth upholstery is original, protected by custom-made green faux leather covers, made by Knecht and Demey in Dijon. A Quillery accessory steering wheel completes the dashboard. This car was used regularly until the death of its owner, and it will need to be restarted and given a general overhaul. Particularly elegant in this "light" version, this Traction Avant has been in a homogeneous condition, and has visibly spent its life in caring hands, an example that would be preferred by most enthusiasts.
