Description:

1955 Citroën


THIS CONVERSION WAS DONE BY A QUALIFIED COACH BUILDER IN TORONTO CANADA IN THE EARLY 80’S. THE CAR STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL PAINT DONE AT THE TIME OF THE CONVERSION. OTHER THAN A FEW MINOR CHIPS AND CRACKS THE PAINT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME IN AMAZINGLY EXCELLENT CONDTION.

OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN VERY SPARINLY AND THR ODOMETER SHOWS 44,210 KILOMETERS OR 26,526 MILES.

THE CONVERSION WAS DONE AS CHAPRON DID WITH THE D MODELS IN THE 60’S AND 70’S. THE CENTER B PILLAR WAS MOVED REARWARD AND THE FRONT DOORS WERE ENONGATED. WITH THE INTERIOR, SPECIAL SEATS WERE CREATED THAT TILT AND ALLOW PASSENGER ENTRY TO THE REAR SEAT.

EXTERNAL HINGES WERE FITTED TO THE DOORS AND A PROPER TOP FRAME CREATED WITH A GOOD CONVERTIBLE TOP AND PLASTIC REAR WINDOW. BOTH DOORS AS WELL AS THE REAR QUARTER WERE FITTED WITH CHROME CAPPED ACTIVE WINDOWS THAT OPEN AND CLOSE PROPERLY. WITH THE TOP AND WINDOWS UP THE CAR IS PERFECTLY WEATHER PROOF.

MECHANICALLY THE CAR IS A TOTALY ORIGINAL TRACTION AVANT AND DRIVES AS IT SHOULD WITH NO PROBLEMS.

THE FACTORY TRACTION AVANT CONVERTIBLES SEATED TWO AND HAD A RUMBLE SEAT. THIS CONVERSION WAS CREATED SO THAT THERE WOULD BE A FOUR SEATER CAR OFFERING WEATHER PROTECTION FOR ALL PASSENGERS. THE ORIGINAL TRUNK SIZE AND LUGGAGE CAPACITY OF THE 11BL HAS BEEN RETAINED WITH THIS CONVERSION.

IT ATTRACTS ATTENTION WHERE EVER IT GOES AND IS ALWAYS THE STAR OF THE SHOW AT ANY CRUISE OR CAR SHOW. SHOULD YOU WISH AN APPOINTMENT TO VIEW THE CAR BEFORE BIDDING, OR HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT AT 416-419-1170
