I bought this low mileage 1978 Citroen Ami 8 in Grenoble. France in 2009. Ever since. it's just been great fun. economical (40 mpg can be achieved). reliable and so comfortable. 1978 is the last production year for the Ami before being replaced by the Citroen Visa. It is fitted with the bullet proof flat twin air-cooled engine (602cc - AM28) which happens to be the most efficient version available (35bhp). It also has the optional centrifugal clutch (replaced in 2010) also known as Traffic clutch (No need to clutch in when you bring the car to a halt) a must have for city driving!. Recently. I had an electronic ignition and a dry coil installed to further improved its legendary reliability. The front brakes have been replaced last summer. both discs and pads. as well as the starting motor (reconditioned). Mechanically. this Ami 8 is in perfect working order.

Cosmetic & Structural condition: Both chassis and body shell are in very good condition. No rot whatsoever!  There's a little bit of surface rust around the front wheel arches and around the gutter; that's it !


Odometer shows 87. 42 km (54. 20 miles). You might wish to know that this Ami was recently hired twice by Movie production company to appear  in the new X-Men  (release date: August 19th 2014) and Pawn Sacrifice (release date . sometime in 2015). Please note also that I never drove this beautiful Citroen in winter and that it always has been stored in our dry and heated garage. More photos available upon request.

Because of the drop of the value of the canadian dollar. this could be the bargain of the year in the Citro world of the USA. A very reasonable starting price and no reserved price. For serious buyer only: no thieves. no frauders. I had two bad experience last year.
