This Citroen 2cv Dolly has been lovingly rebuilt to a very high standard with excellent attention to detail. The Dolly will provide an excellent everyday classic car. or show car. nbsp;which is economical and fun to drive.  

  

The Dolly is a 1988 F registered model. with only 2 loving previous owners. in the colours of fresh white and vibrant red. with a black pin stripe interior and red fabric hood.  The Dolly comes with a V5C registration document. nbsp;a full 12 months MOT and full 12 months tax.

 

Many hours have been spent rebuilding the Dolly sympathetically to a very high standard. I have rebuilt many 2cvs (and other classic cars). the previous 2cvs have gone to very satisfied 2cv lovers.  I've enjoyed. and taken pride in. rebuilding it and it will give me further enjoyment to see it used. loved and cared for.   I am sure this Dolly will provide joy to the new owner. just like my 2cvs have done for me over the past 26 years.

Myself

 

I have grown up with 2cvs. with my father having one. and I'm a Citroen Mehari and 2cv enthusiast. and have been in the 2CVGB for many years. I have rebuilt many Citroens in the past and won awards for them. and have owned a Mehari for 26 years. still having my orange Mehari which was my first car. I'm passionate about the 2cv and get excited when I see one on the road. this is part of my motivation to restore 2cvs – to keep them on the road. and for people to enjoy driving and seeing them.  

                                                                    

General information

 

All parts are available in England via 2cv City or ECAS. The road tax is low. as is insurance.

 

The running costs are low with a high return of miles per gallon. of normal unleaded petrol. nbsp;from its reliable air cooled 602cc flat twin engine.

 

The value of 2cvs are continuing to rise. so this will provide a sound investment.

 

There is an active 2cv club (2cvGB) which holds many events. and can provide useful information on the 2cv.

 

There are photographs of the restoration which can be included.  

 

The Dolly is located near Lincoln. please feel free to arrange a viewing and test drive before purchasing.

 

I may be able to help during collection of the Dolly by collecting you from the train station or airport. Alternatively. I can help arrange collection using a professional car transporter business.

 

I am willing to accept 10% deposit to secure the car for you. and I will withdraw the Dolly from sale. This may be deposited via PayPal. cheque or cash. I will be willing to accept a bankers draft or cash for the balance.

 

I will be happy to talk to you and answer any questions. please email.

 

The asking price is £4995.

 

Thanks for looking. Jonathan.
