CITROEN 2 CV Van 1957

vehicle overview

1957 Citroen AZU Fourgonnette Van. Two tone grey with blue upholstery. Thanks to its soft, long-travel suspension and high ground clearance, the 2CV possessed remarkable off-road abilities together with a very smooth ride. Less than half the price of a VW Beetle, it was a massive success, transforming the lives of the rural poor and selling over 3.8 million examples between 1948 and 1990. This charming 1957 AZU Fourgonnette came to the UK in January 2000 and was given to the last owner in 2005 as a birthday gift from his wife. He then set about the major repairs that were required to get it roadworthy, including work on the sills and floor, rebuilt brakes, new tyres and general service items, the work amounting to over £4,500. From 1954 the commercial van body AZ was re-designated AZU and came with the more powerful (12hp!) 425cc engine. The engine in this AZU starts on the button and drives well. The body is finished in period two tone grey which looks the business. The simple interior is in remarkably good condition with new seat covers, door panels and carpet. The load area although used is still very solid and ready to start carrying again. The tubular front bumper was usually only fitted on La Poste and EdF electricity vans, so that may shine some light on its previous life. The whole concept of purchasing a light commercial for private classic motoring combined with its advertising potential is one we have enjoyed for many years and proved to be an enormous success. Without doubt the most economical and successful form of advertising known to man!. Although now MOT and Tax exempt the van will be sold with a fresh MOT. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards available. Delivery can be arranged.
