1987 Citroën 2cv Bamboo- Beautifully Original For Sale
A beautifully original 1987 Citroën 2cv Bamboo special edition, one of the last French built before production moved to Portugal in 1988. Only 61863 recorded miles since new and garaged for most of its life. This 2cv sits on its original Citroën chassis which is in fantastic condition with no welding required thanks to years of dry storage and periodic Waxoyl treatments. The 'Vert Bambou' paint has a lovely shine to it and wears a few light scuffs and scratches with pride reflecting its 32 years of use. The engine runs beautifully and starts first time hot or cold. The gearbox shifts slickly as it should and the brakes pull the vehicle up swiftly with no pulling to either side. The ride quality is excellent with no play or noises from the suspension or kingpins. All electrics work as they should. The interior is very clean and tidy although the seat covers are looking a little baggy so the new owner may want to replace these to freshen it up. Some repair patches have been welded into the lower bulkhead (toe board) in the past- not pretty but solid. This is the only evidence of welding that I can find. All other usual rust areas are solid. The black vinyl hood is only a few months old. Recent work includes a full engine service with fresh oil and filter, spark plugs, ignition timing and valve clearances reset, new front tyres, a new exhaust system and MOT'd until May 2020. This 2cv is supplied with 3 sets of keys and a comprehensive service history with MOTs and invoices dating back to its first 1000 mile service in September 1987! It is becoming increasingly rare to find such an original and unmolested 2cv with so much documented history that hasn't been subjected to a complete restoration stripping the car of all of its history and character. This isn't a highly restored garage queen. This is a very tidy and charmingly original 2cv in fine mechanical and cosmetic order ready to hit the open road. Plenty more high resolution photos available on request.
