Slow Classic: 1964 Citroen 2CV

The Citroën 2CV, or “deux chevaux” (two horses), was the epitome of French eccentricity, proudly boasting a design that seemed to defy the very laws of aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, and fromage dynamics. The 2CV was the people’s car for the French and provided simple mobility to the unwashed masses, with a staggering production that lasted from 1948 through 1990. Today’s 2CV is the last year of production that used the unusual suicide door setup, and it doesn’t look bad for the asking price. Find this 1964 Citroen 2CV bidding for $6000 with a few hours to go located in St Louis, MO via ebay motors.

From the seller:

1964 Citroen 2CV – rare suicide door model – in storage for the past 15 years and has not been driven.
Older restoration included an upgraded 602cc engine, new fuel lines and gas tank, new bumpers. Last weekend we replaced the battery and it turned over but there was no fuel to the carburetor. We ran a line from a gas can to the carburetor and she fired right up and ran strong. We have videos of it running if you’d like to see it. We cleaned the fuel pump but later found a small hole in the gas line by the tank.

Lights and turn signals work. This would make a great project car with the extremely rare suicide door body style.
