|1925 Citroen Trefle type C|
Chassis Number 69413
Registration number: 5749XH22 (French Carte Gris.)
Named the Trefle, the French word for Shamrock due to the clover leaf seating arrangement of two to the front & one to the rear; this car comes to us from long term French ownership. More colloquially the French call it "Cul de Poule" which translates to Hens Bottom.
This car is a wonderfully gallic alternative to an Austin seven or similar. The great benefit being that unlike an Austin 7, I at 6ft 3" tall am able to comfortably get in & drive it.
The engine is a little gem of 856cc which starts easily & runs beautifully & willingly. One is never going to set speed records in such a car, but we did see 60KMH come up easily on a minor down gradient. The gear box is a three speed affair, easy to use arranged in reverse similar to an early RR 20hp. Reverse being where one might usually find third. First where fourth would be & second where first usually resides etc. The magneto has been converted to coil ignition for reliability.
The paintwork is burgundy over black & presents well. The interior seats are black with matching interior trim. The black hood is in excellent condition & erects easily.Disc type wheels are fitted to the four corners with a rear mounted spare.
The car is in stock & with us now.
