1948 Citroen Traction Avant
This car is in a very nice condition
Needs not much to be able to enjoy it's former glory
The paint is a bit faded from sitting for years in a garage
After only one week of working on it
The car runs just like it did back 1948
The muffler will to be reattached of course
A good color sanding and the paint will be almost new again
This car is a real diamond that with minimal work will shine again

LHD versions were built in Paris, in Forest Belgium
In Copenhagen Denmark for the Scandinavian market
And the RHD cars in Slough, England
The Slough version of the 11L was called the Light Fifteen
The long wheelbase 11 was called the Big Fifteen
This confusing terminology referred to the British fiscal tax rating of the time
It was higher than the French, so the 11CV engine was 15HP in England
The 15CV model was called "Big Six"
In reference to its 6-cylinder engineA 1,911 cc (116.6 cu in)
Light Fifteen tested by the British magazine The Motor
1951 had a top speed of 72.6 mph (116.8 km/h)
It could accelerate from 060 mph (97 km/h) in 29.7 seconds
Fuel consumption of 25.2 miles per gallon 11.2 L/100 km was recorded
The test car cost 812 including taxes
A 2,866 cc (174.9 cu in) six-cylinder model was tested by the same magazine in 1954
For this car the top speed found was 81.1 mph (130.5 km/h)
Acceleration from 060 mph (97 km/h) 21.2 seconds
Fuel consumption 18.6 miles per gallon 15.2 L/100 km
The test car cost 1,349 including taxes
Models assembled in Slough had to consist of 51 per cent UK parts
This made them exempt from the import taxes
Imposed by the UK government to protect British manufacturers from foreign competition
The Slough-built cars used 12-volt Lucas electrics
Lucas headlights
Lucas alternator
And Lucas starter
The interior had a walnut dash board with Jaeger instruments
Connolly Leather seats and door panels
And wool headlining
The exterior was fitted with United Kingdom bumpers
Over-riders and a chrome grille
The Citroen chevrons was mounted behind
Some were fitted with a sunroof
Most of the Slough-built cars were right-hand drive
Although a small number of British specification LHD cars were also built
