The following description is from the previous owner that I purchased the vehicle from very recently. I am now not able to continue with the project due to to my health and my parents having to move from the property where I was going to do the vehicle up. The house has to be sold quickly due to both parents now being in ill health also. So the vehicle has to be resold again.

Well, here is an interesting part-completed project.

PLEASE NOTE: The main picture, vehicle complete, is how the vehicle looked before being stripped down for renovation. As per description the vehicle now is stripped to the tub, as per the other 9 pictures. It is on its four wheels with engine and gearbox attached.

The previous owner has had this original Plum and Custard 'deux chevaux' for around 10 years. He purchased it running but in need of structural work. Having around five or six projects on the go around that time, it was left in the back of the barn awaiting its turn! After some time, It was still languishing in the corner and really needed the necessary work completing. I decided to farm out two projects to a good 'retired' body specialist and welder friend of mine, as he had other vehicles to complete.

The following rusty panels were removed and new replacements welded in.

Front bonnet hinge rail
Rear boot hinge rail
O/S and N/S floor sections
O/S and N/S sills
Rear light and bumper rail cluster panel
Full boot and spare wheel section

The inside of the 'tub' is now in good order and mostly in primer. Unfortunately, his good friend recently sadly passed away and he collected the CV and all related parts, from his now closed workshop late last year. Basically, the vehicle needs completing and as I have now moved house and no longer have my barns I need to sell some vehicles. I am no longer in good health and am sadly unable to carry on with my wonderful 'hobby' of over fifty years.

The 2CV is a good basis for continued restoration. The wings, doors, boot and bonnet are all in very reasonable structural condition overall and could easily be repaired. There is still remedial repair work to be carried out on the main outer structure but generally it means localised repairs only. Overall, the vast majority of the structural work has been completed. The interior is stripped out. The seats are in very reasonable condition. These CV's are such a simple and uncomplicated vehicle to work on with so much information on restoration readily available through clubs, associations, Facebook groups and mutual interest societies.
There appears to be both sealed beam headlamp units missing after collection and one or two odd other bits including one of the screens. The engine was running when taken to the workshop, but having had electrical connections stripped out for the remedial work, the vehicle cannot be tested at present. All mechanical and body parts are readily available for these wonderful CV's and at reasonable prices. I have the V5C and keys.

Any purchaser will need a trailer or large van to collect the vehicle. It is however on its four wheels, movable and lightweight.

Thanks for looking.

There is not a galvanised chassis on this vehicle.
