Back Back 2CV Restoration - Cars for sale
These are the finest examples of the Deux Chevaux, low mileage, superb mechanicals, no rust, legal in USA, located in the States, no extra shipping costs from Europe, no import fees, no importation costs.
Since the cars are already in the US you can see and drive the car before you buy. No gambling with sending money to unknown overseas people who promise to send you a perfect car.
Experience shows that there are not too many good 2CVs left. Almost all cars that have been used in Europe need an extensive restoration job; even if the car looks nice from the outside, inside and under it is mostly plain disaster. When you get such an un-restored (or quick and dirty repaired) car you have to do extensive and very expensive restoration work. By the time the car is in a good condition you spent more money than buying a GOOD restored car from us (See buyers guide See buyers guide).
A good restoration takes a few hundred hours of patient work and the use of expensive material. The seller can make a better profit if this work isn't done. To prove our good and honest work we supply See detailed photos of previous restorations detailed photos of every restoration.

All our cars come with a new frame! (New genuine frame See) The cars get a new main copper-nickel brake line (New copper-nickel brake line See). All rust is removed during the restoration. All mechanical parts i.e. motor, transmission, driving gear, brakes and suspension are either restored or in good condition. All cars come with a disc brake system.
Typically the restored cars get a new brake system, new shocks, new king pins and steering levers, restored drive shafts with new boots, new tires, a new muffler system, new bumpers, a new roof, new special carpets, license plate holders. (What we typically replace See)
We really remove rust by CUTTING OUT the infected parts, (How rust must be treated See) not just covering up the mess with a repair panel!
To save the car from its biggest enemy - rust - all cars we restore get a new rubber based undercoat (Rubber based undercoat See) and a special grease and oil rust protection! (Special grease rust protection See)
Of course all our cars get all maintenance work including new points and spark plugs, fresh oil and a new oil filter, fresh brake- and transmission fluid, the valves are adjusted.

General technical data:
Motor: 2 cylinder horizontal air cooled with 602cc (36,7 cubic inches) and 28 HP (21 kW). Transmission: 4 speed, manual.

... you may find a cheaper 2CV but remember the old saying:
"You don't always get what you pay for - but you never get what you don't pay for!"

Perfectly restored Vert Bamboo 2CV6



The owners brought the 2CV up from California, when they moved to the Seattle region. The car was in pretty bad shape, but they decided to have me restore it for them. The very thorough restoration took a long time, but the result was a 2CV that looked nicer than when it came right out of the factory.

The 2CV got many new parts i.e.
Body: New frame, new floor panels, new rocker sills, new air vent, new bumpers with new overriders and rubber trims, new firewall padding mats, new interior liners, new windshield, new aluminum trims on doors, new rearview mirrors, new roof, new chrome trims on gutters, new front grill with wire mesh.

Mechanical: Factory rebuilt engine, rebuilt transmission with all new bearings, entire new exhaust system, new shock absorbers, all new wheel bearings, new kingpins, new steering arms, new stainless steel brake lines, entire new brake system, new wheels, new starter motor, new clutch, new headlight buckets with H4 reflectors, new battery with power leads, new electronic regulator, newly upholstered seats, new indicators.

The current mileage is 96700 km (60087 mi).

Nicely restored 2CV Dolly



In 2008, the current owner bought this 2CV Dolly from us. In the last 6 years, he only drove it about 5000km. He wants to put it up for sale now.

Note: The photos are from 2008.

 


Due to the weak US dollar and the significantly increased purchase prices in Europe, I wasn't able to obtain any vehicles in quite some time. That lead to the situation, that most of my inventory, even the not listed restoration projects, has a deposit on them. All these vehicles still need to be worked on. This will keep me busy well into the later part of 2014.
So for the time being, the supply from Europe has mostly dried out. However, I'm still looking to acquire 2CVs, which is very difficult but not impossible. So please stay tuned.

New Old Stock 2CV6 Bleue Celeste

Some years ago I managed to find a new old stock 2CV. The first owner, a collector, insisted to have the 2CV delivered straight from the factory. So it came with all the protection covers that a normal buyer would never lay his eyes on. The car was transported into his garage straight from the truck. After many years the owner sold the car to us. The following photos were taken early 2007 when the 2CV was picked up. Everything was as when it came from the factory. It was not even washed for the photos.

The 2CV had original 99km (60 miles) on the odometer when we first sold it. The second owner upgraded the 2CV with a 123Ignition, a speedometer in miles, Citroen hubcaps, a radio with iPod connector, and a 12V cigarette lighter. He drove the car exactly 3678 miles, before I bought it back from him.
Now the car is available for sale. The condition is breathtaking, no restoration or fresh paint, everything is original from the factory. The following photos were taken recently and show the current condition.

Video of the first start when a battery was connected and the 2CV rolled off the trailer on its own power

This new 2CV was transported to its first home where it sat in the garage for 17 years. After we bought it and brought it home, a battery was installed and the motor came to life for the first time after it had left the factory.

This New Old Stock 2CV was kept in a collector's garage, coming straight from the dealership. The car was never driven. This video shows the appearance the day we bought it and brought it home.

Restored Rouge Vallelunga 2CV 6 Club; perfect daily driver

This 2CV makes a great daily driver - it has always been. When I first bought it, it had a rusted frame and the usual rust on the floorpanels. So I replaced all the rust damaged panels and installed a new frame.
This was almost exactly 10 years ago. (Click here for a slide show of the restoration back then). The new owner pampered it and always kept it garaged. In all these years he hardly drove the 2CV. This lead him to the decision to sell this nice 2CV. He contacted me and I bought it back - knowing about the great condition the car is in.
The 2CV got an entirely new muffler system and new Mabor tires. I've serviced the motor and transmission, replaced old rubber seals that started leaking, or might start to leak later. The clutch was replaced and the brakes were overworked. All fluids are new, all maintenance work was done. Bottom line, this 2CV is not a showroom condition vehicle, but a very presentable and very reliable daily driver.
Like all our 2CVs, the car is turnkey, a perfect daily driver.

The original mileage is 95300 km (59560 mi)

Gorgeous like new cream Hoffmann Convertible - extremely rare with only 10,560 mi!

This car is in original condition. It was driven only one year before it was upgraded into the Hoffmann Convertible by the master Wolfgang Hoffmann himself. Since then the little car was on a temporary license that was only good for June and July. The longest time of the year the car was stored in a nice garage together with some other fine 2CVs.

The original (!) mileage is 10,560 mi (17,000 km)

Near New Old Stock Rouge Vallelunga 2CV 6 Club in original condition

This almost new 2CV has only 7,060 original miles (11,296 km). The car is in an absolute original and unrestored condition like right out of the showroom. The paint is original and shiny as if it came directly from the factory.
The 2CV was always kept garaged and only driven very occasionally in summer.
Earlier last fall, Griot's Garage asked us for a perfect 2CV in showroom condition to use for photos for their new catalog. So in December, the 2CV was used in a photo shoot for the new Griot's Garage Catalog. It will be featured on the front page in the spring catalog. This is a big honor for a 2CV. Griot's motto is "Car Care for the Perfectionist". Subsequently the list of vehicles they normally feature in their catalog, reads like the Who is Who of classic cars. Knowing this, I was flattered by their request for our 2CV.
