Description

1955 Citroen 15/6 HYDRAULIC TRACTION AVANT. PRICE REDUCED!! Originally purchased by Thompson Corporation (TRW) to study the unique hydraulic suspension, it was later sold the Harrah's collection in Nevada where it was on display. When the Harrah's collection was partially sold off, this car was purchased by a short term owner, from whom I purchased the car. It has been the pride of the RALLYE COLLECTION SINCE. It has 13985 Kilometers ( 8,670 miles). Ordered with no color, it was shipped to the USA with a special shipping primer. This was a common practice on these cars as the buyer could choose his color when he took retail delivery of the car. The primer was intact when I bought the car and we had it painted in 1990. Technically it still has its original paint, as it was unpainted until 1990. The paint is very nice and has held up well for 27 years. Only maintenance and fluid changes have been done to this car. It is driven every year and at least one tank of gas is put through it each year. It drives like it did 58 years ago. The Michelin tires are new. Nothing has been done to make this car "better" or worse. It is very original. Even the interior is original, and it is exceptionally nice. There is some wear the carpet in the driver's area, as everyone wants to sit behind the wheel when they see this car. If you are looking at this ad, you probably know about these unique cars. There is "tons" of information about these cars on the internet. Built from 1934 through 1957, these cars had staying power. Although all Traction Avants look alike, there are several sizes and engines. This is the largest and very rare version. It boasts, 6 CYLINDER ENGINE, RACK AND PINION STEERING, UNIBODY (FRAMLESS) CONSRUCTION, AND OF COURSE THE HYDRAULIC SUSPENSION. The suspension was such a success that is has been used on most Citroens right up to today.. This car is kept off site, so CALL AHEAD FOR YOUR PREVIEW. 989 835 4430
