1956 Citroën Traction Avant BL

Bid to:

Estimated price €16.000-€20.000 - Offered with reserve price. 

This 1956 Citroën Traction Avant 11BL is finished in burgundy over two-tone grey cloth, this example is powered by a 1.9L inline-four paired with a three-speed manual gearbox. The Traction Avant used a longitudinal front-wheel drive layout with the engine set well within the wheelbase, resulting in a very favourable weight distribution and aiding the car's advanced handling characteristics. The gearbox was placed at the front of the vehicle with the engine behind it and the differential between them, a layout shared with the later Renault 4 and 16 and first generation Renault 5.

The cabin is upholstered in two-tone gray fabric with matching door cards over black carpeting. Amenities include a dash-mounted rear view mirror, a dome light, crank windows. Exterior features include chrome bumpers, gravel guards on the fenders, front and rear doors hinged at the B-pillars, rear turn-signal lenses on the C-pillars.

16″ steel wheels with chrome hubcaps are wrapped in period correct tires. The unibody Traction Avant used rack-and-pinion steering as well as four-wheel independent suspension with front and rear torsion bars. Seller notes that the car is in great condition.
