RHD Citroen Light 15 / Traction Avant. 1947 For Sale
1947 Citroen Light 15 RHD
Slough-built car exported from new to New Zealand and repatriated to the UK in 1994.
I bought this car from it's previous lady owner of nearly 10 years who had it regularly serviced, but was little used other than for the occasional trip out on a sunny day.
When I went to view it, she looked very sad (the car, not the lady!).
She wasn't even running as the petrol pump had packed-up but, looking thru the grime, could see that she was a really solid example of (in my opinion) the prettiest of the all the Tractions (slim body & small boot).
Yes, she has her paintwork imperfections (although nothing really major), needs a carpet and the headlining is the original, but the tub appears straight, rust-free and un-welded. She also starts & runs well, having great character, both from the outside and from behind the wheel.
I have realised however that, nice as she is, I am likely to use her about as much as the previous keeper..!
I have therefore fixed the petrol pump and presented her as nicely as I can, so would like to pass her on to someone who can make better use of her, either just as she is (which I kind-of like) or restore if they see fit.
I have taken her on some small runs of a few miles each, cruising up to just under 50mph.
Now, I'm a bit biased because I think she looks great and goes well, but I have nothing to compare her to.
I would therefore encourage any prospective buyers to 'at least' call me for a chat or, preferably, pay me a visit in Stratford-upon-Avon (CV37 6UW) and take her out for a run.
