"A good car basically as in an older modified working condition."


A user-friendly B11 with features such as an additional mounted heating system, a 12-volt plug, and Citroen BX seats. Extra turn signals have been installed for added security. Yellow lights are installed in the headlights, as well as yellow auxiliary lights. On hot days, the windscreen can be opened to let in fresh air.

This B11 is powered by an early Citroen DS engine. It also features a somewhat newer transmission with a better gear ratio for today's roads and traffic. The previous owner had owned the car for 49 years.

Facts about the model

Det finns några bilar som satt avtryck i historien – och Citroën Traction Avant är en av dem. Modellen som var Citroëns första framhjulsdrivna tillverkades mellan 1934 och 1957. Bäst sålde fyrcylindriga B11 men den fanns även som sexcylindrig B15. Genom åren tillverkades den i en rad generationer men grundtekniken med självbärande helsvetsad kaross utan ram, framhjulsdrift och hydrauliska bromsar fanns med hela vägen.
B11 fanns dels som vanlig Berline, som Cabriolet, niositsig Familiale och transportbilen Commerciale. B15 med den större motorn såldes dock bara som Berline och Familiale. På slutet, strax innan presentationen av DS tillverkades en kort serie med gashydraulisk fjädring bak.
Samtliga hade toppventilsmotor med lösa foder. Från början låg effekten på 34 hk men växte sakta men säkert, och i mars 1939 höjdes den till 56 hk.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
