1977 Citroen 2CV Van
Reg. no. WGT 476R
Chassis no. 19A5790
Engine no. AK20506067525
Pity the designers and engineers who had to try to fulfil the Citroen board’s requirements for the 2CV. Not only did they insist that a farmer should be able to drive across a ploughed field with a bucket of eggs on the passenger seat without breaking any, but also that he should have enough headroom to wear a hat while doing this. In addition, the car had to be cheap, as it was intended as transportation for the masses. Despite these strict parameters, and considerable disruption to the development programme caused by an invading Austrian, the 2CV went into production in 1948, and few would now dispute that Citroen’s designers and engineers got the car absolutely right. A practical vehicle by its very nature, a commercial version was a natural step and duly arrived, going on to sell well over a million. By 1977, the vans were called the AK400 – 400KG being the load capacity.
This 1977 van is in good condition, and received a new chassis about seven years ago. Our vendor purchased the car from its original owner and she describes it as a \'very tidy reliable vehicle\' which has been lightly used and always kept under cover. It comes with a V5c.
