Deux Chevaux – the Citroën 2CV

Such a simple car I can quite honestly admit that I thought the 2CV was just one car with no variations and little interest to me until I decided to take a dig about to see what was out there ad boy did I like what i found. I was completely shocked to find a convertible coupe that’s for sure and definitely didn’t expect it to look good!!!

The humble French farmers car rumoured to have been designed to “traverse the ploughed fields without breaking a tray of eggs held by the farmer’s wife” now I’m sure a lot of car designers would love such a simple design brief like that now a days LOL.

I believe this could be my next project if eBay can turn up a cheap decent example, I really feel it perfectly suites the ratrod/hotrod kind of look and have found some superb examples and renderings for your viewing pleasures and my ideas box alike.

I’m off to buy myself some eggs and looking for a plowed field to test them on 🙂
