André Lefebvre, born in 1894, was a brilliant aeronautical engineer and responsible for many important early Citroëns, such as Traction Avant, the Type H, the 2CV and the DS. He spent 15 years with Gabriel Voisin, briefly sending time at Renault, before beginning his career at Citroen, lasting till 1958.

The Citroën 7C Traction Avant was in production for 23 years, beginning in 1934. During its production lifespan, 760,000 had been built; of those, 69,500 were 7C models.

The name 'Tracation Avant' translates to 'Front-Wheel Drive,' one of its many technical innovations, which also included hydraulic brakes, synchromesh transmission, overhead-valve engine, an all-independent torsion bar suspension, and a monocoque body.

This particular example was purchased by its current owner in Europe. Its 1,628cc overhead inline 4-cylinder engine is fitted with a Single Downdraft carburetor and produces 36 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox, hydraulic drum brakes, and an independent suspension.
