The Citroen (Citroën) 2CV (en français — deux chevaux) was a front drive economy car that had prototype builds starting in 1939 with innovative features like a flat-twin aircooled engine and seats hung like hammocks from the roof with
wife wires (really, this is true). Unfortunately a nasty global war broke out a few months later and Germany occupied France (yaddy yaddah) and the 2CV en masse production until 1948….but it lasted well into the 20th century. Find this 1965 Citroën 2CV Truckette offered for $16,250 in Woodland Hills, CA via craigslist.
The 2CV was built in epic numbers, so the idea of spending more than $15k on one sounds ludicrous, but the Fourgonnette version oozes cool onto the pavement like 10W30. The 425cc flat-twin should be good for around 19 horsepower when new, so you won’t use this car for your brick delivery service, but it would be good for someone delivering gourmet popcorn.
