1948-1978 CITROEN 2CV specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Envisaged as a car to motorise the French peasant population, the 2CV went on to become a true world car. The deceptively simple appearance belied a car that was very clever, with interconnected suspension and a tough air-cooled twin-cylinder engine. The simply-constructed body was considered ugly when the car was launched in 1948, leading to the nicknames of the Tin Snail and the Duck. But it was these endearing looks that helped win the 2CV a legion of followers, and it stayed in production for 42 years.
