Known History

This pretty and rare 2CV is a type A, one featuring the twin-cylinder 375cc engine, which was registered in 1954. The story that has been told to us by the current owner is quite interesting - its first owner never left the town of Cambrai with the car. He was a farmer living in Paillencourt, just next to Cambrai, and a plate riveted on the engine cover certainly indicates the garage that took care of the car at the time: Etablissements Courtin et Bťvierre Automobiles, in Cambrai. As the second owner indicated, he used beeswax on the car after every drive in the rain. Its second owner only kept it for a short time and the car's current owner acquired it in 1990, attracted by the state of preservation of the vehicle. He had the braking, the paint and the chassis redone in 2002 at the Fontaine de Cambrai garage after a few rust spots appeared. The hood was also replaced in the past. The car is now in a beautiful and interesting state of preservation. The upholstery, undoubtedly original, has stood the test of time and the only thing missing in the passenger compartment is the speedometer, which had been stolen. The 2CV is an automotive icon which is very much a part of the French national heritage and whose price continues to go up. The early cars are the most sought after and the one we are offering is particularly interesting
