“Little Book of Citroën 2CV” by Ellie Charleston

Little Book of Citroën 2CV

The Citroën 2CV has become something of a cult car with its unique and quirky design, and the “Little Book of Citroën 2CV” provides a brief but fascinating look at this enduring motoring icon, in a 160 page hardback book full of unique colour photographs. It looks at the history of our beloved Citroën 2CV from its pre-war conception through to the last car to roll off the production line in 1990.

The book explains how the Citroën 2CV was intended to be a versatile and affordable car for farmers and the common man and how the designers developed our unique “umbrella on wheels”. It also takes a nostalgic look at the many derivatives, including the four wheel drive version and all the kit cars built on the Citroën 2CV chassis.
