Engine 320510 - Factory convertible
The mark of André Citroën, always knew to be illustrated in Europe, like a mark with vocation populist, always putting a point of honor not to copy its competitors, and to support the innovation. The "Traction" is the first real example of these mechanical innovations that have revolutionized the daily life of French drivers. It may make you smile nowadays, but offering an affordable car, in large series, with the particularity of having the front wheels, and not the rear, driven was revolutionary at the time. It's the flexibility, versatility, and road holding more than the sportiness that make this car interesting. In addition, most of the traction cars had a monocoque structure, hydraulic brakes and independent suspension. The traction car was produced from 1934 to 1957, and was available in many generations, often in radically different versions.
Our example is in superb condition. The cabriolet is of a rare elegance, with a blue color dress, in contrast with its beige canvas top. The beige upholstery is in perfect condition. The chrome and the wheels matching the paint are also sublime. The model offered is indeed an authentic Traction convertible. It is ready to take the road. All the on-board instrumentation is functional. This beautiful spider is just waiting to be driven. Nice rides in perspective for this summer.
