1988 Citroen 2cv ***FULLY RESTORED*** For Sale
This Citroen 2cv has been lovingly restored and will provide an excellent everyday classic or show car, which is economical and fun to drive. The 2cv Dolly is a RHD, E registered 1988 disc brake model in vibrant red and fresh white with a black pin stripe interior and red fabric hood. The Dolly comes with a V5C registration document and a full 12 months MOT. Many hours have been spent rebuilding the 2cv sympathetically to a very high standard. I have rebuilt many classic Citroens (and other classic cars), the previous cars have gone to very satisfied classic car lovers and gone on to win awards at shows. I've enjoyed and taken pride in rebuilding it and it will give me further enjoyment to see it used, loved and cared for. I am sure this 2cv will provide joy to the new owner, just like my Citroens have done for me over the past 30 years.

Myself: I have grown up with classic Citroens with my father having them throughout my life. I’m a classic Citroen enthusiast and have been in the 2cvGB club for many years. I have rebuilt many Citroens in the past and won awards for them. I’m passionate about Classic Citroens and get excited when I see one on the road. This is part of my motivation to maintain and restore these cars: to keep them on the road, and for people to enjoy driving and seeing them.
