Road and Track Magazine Interviews Noel Slade

Interest in the vintage Citroen 2CV is soaring amid rising fuel costs and a near meltdown of the automotive industry.  And now the rest of the world is starting to take notice.

We’ve been restoring Citroen cars for the last 20 years.  But it wasn’t until recently that they caught the eye of the mainstream automotive market.

Last year, Road and Track magazine dedicated a two page spread honoring the reinvention of the Citroen 2CV, and the exceptional work performed right here at Eurocar Imports.  We are one of a handful of expert Citroen mechanics in the US with the ability to fully restore or completely rebuild vintage Citroen cars from the ground up.

A vintage Citroen 2CV can earn up to 40 miles per gallon around town and up to 50 miles per gallon on the highway.  The 2CV runs on regular fuel.  Beyond the mileage, the 2CV offers an unmistakable element of style, grace and sophistication.   Introduced by the French in the 1940’s, the Citroen was the premier choice of transportation for heads of state and French royalty.

We can restore or rebuild any vintage 2CV that comes our way, no matter what its condition.  There is nothing that is not available for the 2CV.  Some of the parts are aftermarket but are better than the originals. 

For vintage car enthusiasts looking to procure their dream Citroen, Eurocar Imports offers completely customized rebuilds which include a new galvanized frame, floorpans, jody box section, exhaust system, seat covers, carpeting, headliner, canvas sunroof, bumpers, a low-mileage engine with new- disc brakes, a rebuilt transmission, new paint in a color of the buyer’s choice, new chrome door trim and five new tires. 

We can also re-create the  2CV’s two-tone Charleston model. The yellow Charleston with black fenders is his most popular car. It also has chrome trim on the rocker panels and a passenger-side mirror. Consumers can also opt for an engine rebuilt to factory specifications.
