Hemmings Find of the Day – 1985 Citroen 2CV Special

Published in

Freshly restored and show-ready 1985 Citroen 2CV Special for sale. From the seller’s description:

2CV Spécial in Bleu Azurite. The restoration of this superb late model 2CV was just completed by Burton Car Co. in the Netherlands. She is in close to “As New” condition. She was purpose built from the ground up, using a large number of new components. Here are some of the highlights: The work started with a new factory chassis. The body shell was stripped, and received new floor boards, doorsills, and a lower fire wall, new fenders, new bumpers, new bumper brackets and over riders. A bare metal, high quality new paint job was applied inside and out. She received new turn signal assemblies, new halogen headlight units, a new headlight bar, a complete exhaust system, four new shock absorbers, new drive shaft boots, all new heater hoses, a completely new brake system, stainless steel brake lines, seat upholstery, cabin upholstery, sound deadening panels, and a new convertible roof. The windshield and rubber gasket were replaced, new rubber door seals were installed. She has new wheel rims, new tires. The engine and transmission are brand new Burton remanufactured units. She has new spark plugs and cables, and a 123 Electronic ignition system. Further, a new alternator, starter motor a new oil filler/breather assembly, and so much more. All the engine sheet-metal and heater boxes have been powder coated. A new battery was installed. She comes with two key sets.

The engine runs smooth and strong and starts at the first touch of the key. The transmission works great. Brakes and steering are excellent. She has disc brakes on the front, and drums on the rear. This is a very handsome 2CV with excellent paint and interior, and a soundly running car! The cars return great fuel mileage and are a lot of fun to drive. These late model 2CVs have plenty of power to keep up with modern traffic in the city, and will drive along happily all day long at 65 mph on the highway. They are famously reliable, and if you’d need anything parts are readily available and inexpensive. An English language owner’s manual comes with the car.
