About the item

The Citroën 2CV derives its name from the French deux chevaux for its replacement of a “two horse” drawn carriage. The 2CV signaled a major innovative shift in the automobile industry, changing the face of car ownership for everyday drivers in the mid-to-late 20th century. The brainchild of Citroën Vice President Pierre Boulanger in 1948, the 2CV expedited the postwar spread of motorized transportation to rural France. The front-wheel-drive 2CV became a household name in France, lauded for its air cooled engine originally offering 9 hp, fuel-efficiency, and extraordinarily smooth suspension over long distances. Far from all-work-no-play, the Citroën 2CV evolved from a practical commodity into a stylistic icon, with a series of special edition models that took the French market by storm. Among the most cherished of these was the Dolly, introduced in March 1985, with iconic two-tone color scheme, stylish yet efficient roll-back sunroof, and Art Deco design. This gorgeous 1986 Citroën 2CV Dolly is emblematic of the whimsical appeal of the model to buyers at home and abroad. Sporting a red and white two-tone body with a gray interior and the distinctive roll-back sunroof, this car spent most of its life – appropriately – in France, before being imported by the consignor, a renowned American collector with a taste for charismatic automobiles. This Dolly has been well maintained and remains charming by anyone’s definition of the term. classic car
