1952 Citroen Traction Avant Sedan

    This 1952 Citroen Traction Avant is a 15CV powered by an inline six-cylinder engine with a 2,867cc displacement and overhead valves. Around 6.5% of the TAV's had 6-cylinder engines. Also, TAV's were never sold in the United States. The transmission is located in front of the engine with clutch, flywheel and pressure plate in between. The current owner was an American G.I. station in France from 1961 through 1963, and owned an early 1952 model which he drove all around Europe.

    This Citroen was acquired from a warehouse in the Chicago area where it had resided for at least 3 years. Little is known of its previous history other than it had been owned by a Chicago restauranteur for four years. The French plates indicate that it was registered in the Paris area at one time.

    From 2009 to 2012, the car was treated to a nearly 100% restoration by its current owner.

    No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
