“the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car” L. J. K. Setright.
Yet another populist people mover that’s still pretty valid in our time. Perhaps not the most crashtestworthy [it would certainly not survive a gentle brush with a hummer / humvee] the Citroen 2CV is a remarkable little car. That it was immensely popular and successful is an understatement – it was in production for over 40 years across the world in many, many iterations.
These images are of a pristine 2CV6 Charleston, seen in Chicago, IL. With loads of character, space, and engine sizes that compare favorably with those in scooters and mopeds, would you consider this a worthy contender for an in-city runabout? If so, maybe these fine folks could help you out.
