Black & Chrome 2cv


frontview of 2cv Black & Chrome

Somewhere in the nineties, I found myself an originally black 2CV. Slowly on I transformed the standard car into a black & chrome machine that makes heads turn when this Cabrio-Limousine-Classic-Car passes by.

Built in 1986, this car has a classic look.

I'll describe from front to back the parts I added or changed, the origine of the parts and a price estimation in Euro's (without indexation, anno 2000).

As a sales rep for a cardismantling company in Antwerp/Belgium I was able to spot a lot of parts on carlots during the week, and picked them up at weekends or holidays. Of course all of these items aren't really chrome. But if you shine and polish them thoroughly, even the aluminium or whatever it is, looks brilliant!

This unique car is not mine anymore, but I'm sure you'll be able to see it on different meetings throughout Europe, as the new owner is also a 2cv enthusiast.

Of course these prices are just estimates.
If you're lucky you pay less, or you can exchange for other parts.
If you're really desperate to have a specific part, you pay more!
(It shows on your face-expression - so they told me!)
