1969 Citroen Ami 6 Break shooting brake station wagon. the best selling French car in its day, is now extremely rare and sought after. this car was an Estate car on the French Riviera. it was used when away from the vineyard and on vacation. it was well protected, and used very little. these cars are prone to rust and decay. but not this one. it was sourced from its Southern French estate and because of its amazing condition, shipped to Quebec Canada. odometer shows 56 km!! it was restored and given a fresh coat of paint in 2014. the car was then shipped into the U.S. (quite rare…….when was the last time you saw one of these in the states ??). there were grand plans for the car in southern california, but they never materialized, and the car was put into storage. the car has now been recommissioned with a fresh tune up, carb rebuild, new points, brake work, starter to make it a pleasure to once again reliably enjoy the road. with famous soft Citroen suspension, and plenty of eyeball, how can one resist not driving this practical and very rare car. mechanicals are the same as the popular 2cv, so parts are plentiful and easy to service. the ami, is an upgraded slightly larger, more upscale and more comfortable car. a knockout hit at any car show. reliable, practical and economical at the same time. lots of quirky little French styling cues and layout makes this car charming and endearling to everyone who sees or gets to ride in this piece of French history. certainly one of the very finest in the states. investment quality. certain to appreciate with time as well. enjoy your investment in the meantime. financing available online thru Lightstream.com. interesting automotive trades considered.
