Citroen 2CV Charleston

Did you know…the Citroen 2CV came on the scene in 1948.  At that time, it was only offered in one color; gray. In 1959, blue was added to the list of available colors, and then in 1960 yellow was added.

The front-wheel drive Citroen 2CV was not a flash car; it was a practical car. The ability to remove the seats and panels created extra room for larger objects, plus the 2CV was able to travel over 50 miles on one gallon of gas.

The practicality of the 2CV made it very popular. It was inexpensive, fuel efficient, fun, and convenient. Between 1948 and 1990, 5,114,920 Citroen 2CV’s have been produced.
