HISTORY OF THE 1956 CITROEN 2CV'S: First introduced at the 1948 Paris Auto Salon, the 2CV Citroën designed by Pierre Boulanger, was the most unique and extraordinary design of the auto show. Considered by some to be astonishingly radical for the time, the 2CV was a low priced, rugged vehicle for the masses. Incredibly revolutionary, the 2CV was cheap, economical and very light. With a top speed of 40 mph, the 2CV had an engine that displaced 375cc, produced 9hp from its two-cylinders, and was air-cooled. Using no more than 3 liters of gas to travel 100 km, the 2CV was great for two peasants to travel to market on unpaved roads. The roof could also be lifted up so a hat could be worn while driving. By 1913, the TPV; ‘Toute Petite Coiture' or the Very Small Car , precursor to the 2CV, was considered drive-able and several prototypes had already been manufactured. Michelin and Citroen managers chose to hide the TPV project from Germany during the Germany occupation of France during World War II. Several TPV's were hidden at secret locations. One was disguised as a pickup, while others were even destroyed. Six years went by before while Boulanger had time to focus on more improvements. The car was considered to be a revolution in consumer transportation. Constructed of a dual H-frame chassis, the body had an airplane-style tube framework and a very thin steel shell. The 2CV engine was powered by a flat-twin air-cooled engine that was designed by Walter Becchia. More responsive, the swinging arm, fore-aft linked suspension system was much lighter, which enabled the 2CV to be driven at a competitive speed over a ploughed field. There was only a three-year waiting list after only months of it going on sale. The ability to remove the seats and panels created extra room for larger objects were just a few of the amenities that made this car practical. Only one color was initially offered when the car came on the scene in 1948, it was grey. In 1959, blue was added to the list of available colors, and then in 1960 yellow was added. The 2CV was one of Citroen’s most popular vehicles of the car manufacturer’s entire history, ending pruduction in 1990 with over 5 million units sold. The car will forever be remembered as a very important milestone in automotive history for its inexpensiveness, fuel efficiency, fun, and convenience.

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
