Green Duck: 1987 Citroen 2CV

This next car had me to a double take on the model year. 1987? Surely this must be a typo — it looks closer to 1957 or 1967…but the legendary Citroën Duex Chevaux was sold in a Beetlesque single generation from 1948 through 1990 with only some safety and regulatory changes to keep up with the times. To put this in perspective, imagine if you could buy a brand new 1978 Pontiac Sunbird at a dealer today — that is how old the 2CV was in the late 80s when this example rolled off the factory line. Find this 1987 Citroen 2CV offered for $12,500 in Henderson, TX via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

This is a late model 2cv and part of the last few made in the French factory. This 2cv is also a special edition export model for Germany known as the Ente Grun or green duck edition.
The 2cv drives very well, it has the late model 602cc engine and inboard front disc brakes that use LHM fluid. I have used it as my regular town car and also take it on the highway once a week. While the car isn’t the most quickest, it can cruise at 65-70 mph.
Mechanically the 2cv is turn key ready. It turns on easily, shifts well, and drives comfortably.
Most of what it could use is cosmetics. It has some dents and normal wear from driving.The paint is in good shape for it age except on the trunk where it has some fading.
