1952 Citroën Traction Avant

You're looking at a gorgeous 1952 Citroen Traction Avant, with tan and burgundy exterior that perfectly matches with the same 2-tone stunning interior. The Traction Avant, which translates literally as "front-wheel drive” in French, was the world's first front-wheel drive production car using a steel unibody construction. The car you drive today was most likely built the same way!

Traction Avants are fairly robust vehicles even by modern standards. Every four years, Traction Avant enthusiasts ship or drive their vehicles to an exotic location for the ICCCR (International Citroën Car Clubs Rally). In 2002, for example, a group of more than 30 Traction Avants drove from Los Angeles to New York City without incident. In a word, c'est magnifique!

I bought this beauty from a classic car collector, a long-time Citroën owner who has been nurturing this car throughout the years. I've already bought several cars from him and I am well-aware that his cars are always parked in a warehouse and meticulously maintained.

This Citroën has no rust whatsoever! The chrome, interior and exterior are in excellent condition. Imported about 15 years ago, it's been driven on a regular basis, and also featured in numerous car shows.

Odometer shows only 45,402 original miles (73,068 kilometers). I am holding a clear Mississippi title; however, mileage is indicated as exempt on the title due to the age of the car.

Mechanical
The car has a very original drivetrain, engine and transmission. Also has new shocks, clutch, and drive shaft. This car runs, drives, and stops as it should. This is a great driver with no issues. Everything is in working order.

Exterior
The exterior of this car is in amazing condition with nice and shiny chromes that stand out. All windows and doors open and close as they should. Undercarriage is very solid and rust-free. Overall the car is in amazing condition.

Interior
The interior is in superb condition. The headliner, dash, seats, carpet, and glass are all in great condition as if the last 65 years have never been there.
