1954 Citroen Traction Avant Light 15 For Sale

(same model as the French built Legere). For those unfamiliar with this model of Citroen, it was built from 1934 to 1957.  When this car was introduced, it was on the leading edge of technology with monocoque construction, four wheel independent torsion bar suspension, front wheel drive and Lockheed hydraulic brakes. 

This car was built in Citroen’s factory in Slough, England for export to South Africa. Driven in South Africa for 18 years (it has the original South Africa Auto Association badges front and rear).  The family then moved to Botswana for two years (it has the original Botswana Insurance Stickers on the inside of the windshield). The car was then taken to Quebec Canada where it was stored on the second floor of a barn for 30 years. In 2005 the car was removed from the barn and given to a member of the Citroen Auto Club of Canada in Toronto. It was gone through mechanically, re-wired and a beautiful interior installed.  I purchased the car in 2015 and brought it to California. New tires and drive-shafts were installed and the engine and transmission were gone through by a very good Traction mechanic in northern California. It is now reliable and drives and shifts beautifully. The cooling system is tight and a Pertronix ignition was also installed.  Because the car was built in England, it has an upgraded interior and has a 12 volt electrical system as opposed to the French built Tractions.  The paint condition is fair.

The car has won Best of Class and Best of Show awards at two Citroen West Coast Rendezvous and has won Best of Class at the Huntington Beach Concours and the Laguna Beach Classic Car Show. 

The car has 45,730 miles on the odometer and a clean, current California title.

Asking Price: $22,000

’71US/early eighties European model Mehari for sale

It was going through a complete restoration, when my health started deteriorating, so I can not finish the job. It is now over 80% done.

Over the years I replaced all body panels with brand new ones from France,painted vert Montana. except the interior – what I call the tub.

It comes with two engines- the original ’71, that was professionally rebuilt about 5-6 years ago, which means about 15000 miles on it. still runs strong, but I wanted a more modern one with an external oil filter, so I’ve brought one home as a short block from Europe about 2-3 years ago. It also comes with two transmissions – the original, truck or agricultural tranny and an AMI-8, disk brake unit that is already installed.

If someone is seriously interested, send me an e-mail to Lewis – sohordo@cox.net and I will mail you back a several pages, detailed description what was already none and what are the still outstanding issues. The rebuild is totally photo-documented, which is also available upon request from me. I have all the invoices of what I spent on it since Ive purchased it.I do not dare to add it up

The vehicle is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Asking price is 12,000 US Dollars.
