Documentatie

La plus joli voiture du monde. Designed in the late 1930s, built after the war until 1990. After the VW Beetle the longest built unaltered model.

After the death of André Citroën and the takeover of the company by tire manufacturer Michelin, the new management of car manufacturer Citroën decided in 1935 to develop a small car that should be suitable for the rugged French countryside: the TPV, or Toute Petite Voiture. Project leader and driving force Pierre-Jules Boulanger described the goal as “”an umbrella on four wheels””. Based on market research, it was decided that it should be a vehicle that could transport two farmers with 50 kilograms of potatoes or a barrel with 50 liters of wine. There is also a story that it had to offer the possibility to bring a sheep in the car. The car had to be so comfortable that eggs in a basket would not break if the car were to drive over a piece of plowed land. Other requirements were that the car had to be economical, reliable, cheap and easy to operate: a farmer’s wife had to be able to drive it to the market. Also, the farmer, wearing his Sunday hat, had to fit in so that he could go to church by car. The appearance of the car was not considered important.

Originally, only one headlight was installed for reasons of savings. However, after a prototype was hit during a test drive, because the oncoming vehicle thought it was dealing with a motorcycle, the model was equipped with two headlights.This lovingly restored 2CV is ready for many years of driving pleasure. One of the earlier Ducks, including a ribbed hood and small rear lights. Not perfect, but in good condition.

To get a good idea of the car, we advise you to come to one of the viewing days.
