I am very proud to offer this gorgeous blue Citroen 2cv for sale. This particular 2cv was used for a few tours around Paris by a small tour company that traditionally did tours in sidecars, but wanted to test the market with a 2cv. The sidecar tours proved more popular with their British clients, and so the owner of the tour company decided to sell their 2cv to buy another sidecar.Because of the importance of having an ultra-reliable and immaculate 2cv for their demanding clients, this 2cv is a step above the rest. The car idles extremely well, the brakes are silent, and there are no rust issues with the car. This 2cv is also one of the few to offer a centrifugal clutch, which is a fantastic feature for owners living in congested areas, or who just love to have a helping hand in driving their manual transmission cars. From a standstill, the centrifugal clutch allows the driver to come to a complete stop with the car in 1st gear, without having to depress the clutch. The car will idle perfectly, ready to go just by accelerating, much like an automatic transmission. As soon as the driver starts accelerating (without touching the clutch), the centrifugal clutch will work some magic, and propel the car forward. You still need to use the clutch pedal when shifting between gears, but not for coming to a stop. Once you've driven a 2cv with a centrifugal clutch, you'll want this transmission in every car that you drive! Not only does the car look like new, but it drives that way, too. The motor is the best that Citroen ever put into the wonderful 2cvs, with 602cc displacement and dual barrel carburetor, coupled with front disc brakes for the best stopping power. Given the cost of gas, it's great to know that you can cruise around in this 2cv at normal US highway speeds (top speed of over 70mph) while still achieving over 50-60mpg!
The soft top can roll all the way back to transform the car into a convertible for all 4 passengers, and can be opened from the inside of the car, even while travelling at slow speeds.
All lights, switches and instrumentation panels work perfectly and are original.
The car passed the rigorous French "controle technique" with a perfect score, which includes a 125-point inspection of all aspects of the car, including the entire brake system, emissions levels, fuel system, steering, seatbelt mounting points, all lights, oil leaks, suspension travel, bearing play, and lots more. The entire process takes approximately one hour, and is very, very thorough.
This spectacular car is already in the US with a normal, valid Ohio title. You do not have to worry about going through the customs clearing process or paying any hidden fees - the car is sold with a standard U.S. title which can be transferred to your name just like any other U.S. titled car.
Please do not hesitate to e-mail me with any questions you might have.
As you can see in my 100% positive feedback rating, all of which were for 2cvs, all of my buyers are delighted with their cars, as I only deal with the best of the best. I've literally inspecteds hundreds of 2cvs all over France in order to choose the select few that I import. I would be happy to supply references of several of my buyers upon request, some of whom have been driving their 2cv's for over ten years and still have the smile on their face only a 2cv can bring out!
