Citroen or Citroën: 1986 Hoffman 2CV Cabrio

If the original 2CV isn’t strange enough for your garage, you might want to consider a Hoffman 2CV…wow that sounded like a good idea when it was in my head, but now that I read it on paper..yikes.  Anyway, back in the late 1980s a German bloke named Wolfgang Hoffman decided to sell a kit car cabrio body using glass reinforced plastic, steel frame, and running gear from a 2CV that the buyer provided.  Typically, a kit car will transform the original into something exotic — a Beetle becomes a 356 Speedster, or a Fiero becomes a Ferrari, or a Eldorado becomes a Batmobile, but the Hoffman kit takes 2CV drivetrain parts and makes a…2CV.  Find this 1986 Hoffman 2CV Cabrio offered for $15,600 in Williamsburg, VA via hemmings.
