Citroën 2 CV Sahara
Date of manufacture: 09.02.1961
This desert-adpated 2 CV Sahara has been owned by one German collector since late 2014. It was acquired from its sole and original owner in France. Its notably good condition testifies to 30 years of careful storage in a dry garage. Over the last 12 months, the current owner has invested approx. 15,000€ in servicing and maintenance work. This was carried out by a vintage Citroën specialist workshop in France.
