– Spanish registration documents

In the James Bond “For your eyes only” movie, Roger Moor as 007 escaped from his persecutors in a yellow “CV 6 – one of the most epically funny chases!


The French revolution and an automotive icon: “La toute petite voiture” (really little car)

The 2CV was the mid-1930s brainchild of Pierre-Jules Boulanger, the head of Citroën
Long before the Volkswagen was heard of, M. Boulanger decided that there was a market for a cheap, easily maintained, basic car to replace the horse and cart on French rural roads, and even on the fields. His specification was for an “umbrella on wheels”, a car that could carry 50 kilogrammes and four people at up to 60kph and cross a ploughed field carrying a basket of eggs. Since the seats were removable to allow animals to be carried, that has sometimes been elaborated to “a car capable of driving across a ploughed field with a sheep in the back and a pile of eggs on the front seat, without breaking the eggs”.
Simple, almost primitive and yet full of innovation, the unusual vehicle made friends right from the start. Designed before world war II, mass production began only in 1949 and then continued with relatively minor modifications for over 4 decades.
The proverbial reliability of the small Citroen is based on the principle that what’s not there can’t break:
However, the vast majority of the 2 CV felt prey to rust , so that well-maintained vehicles have today become rare, sought-after classics.
