Hello selling my " HOLY GRAIL" Citroen Traction Avant 15/6 1949. This is the unique bigger body 8" longer than the mass produced 4 cylinders. This car was limited production and very few left in the world ! This vehicle has most of his original paint and was never restored, saying that I believe it had his share of nicks dings and touch ups.Loved by the French police and gangsters that needed the extra horsepower, will travel 80 miles/hour. This is a rare car with a rare story, Here is the full documented story .The car was bought in France and stayed in France till 1960, a gentleman from Michigan whom immigrated from France inherited the car from his aunt whom bought it new, he had the car shipped to the US. There are only two owners and from the same family who owned the car. The car had only 6000 miles in 1960 when the second owner inherite, he decided to store and preserve the car in his garage, only put a few thousand miles on the car in the last 50 years. Not being driven enough created mechanical problems and the car ended up being repaired several times at Citroen specialized shops, I have full documentation of all work done to include complete new exhaust system, new front wheel bearings,brakes and brake lines. Rebuilt master cylinder, new fuel pump and water pump, new clutch, new crankshaft ring gear, new timing chain and cover, new head gasket and valve cover gasket, new piston fittings, new starter cable. new boot leather steering rack cover, new pistons. The compression test on all six cylinders is equal 125 psi, new distributer cap, plugs points and wires, new battery. When I bought the car from the long time owner witch took months of convincing that it was time to sell, I decided to order new old stock original seat covers ( they still looked great but were dry rotted) and had them professional installed. The previous owner had the whole underside sanded cleaned and painted, not undercoated but painted, he refused to repaint the car and left it original, I decide the same this accident and rust free never restored car. One of the mechanics decide to remove the double carburetors and install a easy to start single carburetor. I have all the components intake and carburetors, the intake has SPEED stamped in it which was only installed on police cars? I have all the tools, jack. The interior is incl. the headliner A+, the chrome is very nice, everything is in working order, the old wire harness was replaced with new. Has working heater with blower. Tires are 90% good, have new old stock steering wheel with horn button I will include, also numerous spare parts and documentatio, I am a private collector this car belongs in a museum very very rare with great documented history, title in hand here is your chanc, shipping at your expense will assist, $ 500.00 deposit balance within seven day, I am not going to give it away I spend a live time finding one thanks for your interest!
