1955 Citroen Traction Avant 11B Legere


car description

Unbelievably advanced when it first appeared with monocoque construction, front wheel drive, independent suspension and a streamlined body – today it is much admired and lovely to drive. Compare it with most other 1955 cars (let alone 1934) and the differences are staggering. This particular example is beautifully presented in Citroen Jaune Rialto with contrasting light brown wings, benefitting from recently re-upholstered seats and door cards, running very well, one owner only since it was imported from France in 1978, lots of work done including, we understand, a brake overhaul and service in 2015, has been converted to 12 volts at some stage, has front seat belts, new battery and very good Michelin tyres. Comes with rare workshop manual, a Notice d'Entretien (drivers handbook), spares catalogue and good history file. Has been re-registered with age related number and has a full MOT.
