As Seen on Craigslist – 1971 Citroen 2CV6

Like most unique (at least in the U.S.) cars, I know the Citroen 2CV has a distinct cult following.  And like VW Beetles, they certainly have their charm and certain benefits.  But personally, I have no desire to putt around in a dangerously underpowered tin can designed seventy years ago to motorize French peasants.  It might be fun for an afternoon, but I’m pretty sure I’d be finding a way to shoehorn a big-block Chevy under the hood within a week, just for the fun of it.  And then I’d wrap the thing around a pole within a week of that.  So I guess it’s a good thing this car holds no appeal for me, because it would result in both an expensive divorce and a fiery death.  However, if you are so inclined to pretend you’re a French beet farmer or something, this one looks quite clean and is offered by a very reputable dealer.  Just don’t pull out in front of anything faster than, say, a Model T.
