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.
Let me give you an overview of the special parts I added :
|paperclip overriders||AZAM-model / 60-ties||50,- Euro|
|black/plastic bumper strip
(instead of the tape)
|Older 2CV models||20,- Euro|
|chrome rings around blinkers||HY-van||5,- Euro/ring|
with H4 bulb and glass with E-homologation!
|last model of Charleston||50,- Euro/piece|
|chrome wiperarms and bolts||older 2CV models||10,- Euro|
|15" wheelcovers||GS/GSA Pallas||75 Euro,- / set|
|robri-replica-covers for fenders||?||125,- Euro/set|
|black interior / door panels||2CV Club & Special|
|bigger single seats
|+ simili leather headrests||GS / CX|
|carradio + speakers (ultra-flat)
(speakers fit in the doorpanel!)
|chrome strip underneath doors||Charleston||5,- Euro/piece|
|chrome strip around doors||Charleston||5,- Euro/meter|
(with "Citroen" over the lock)
|Chrome bumpers (back & front)||Dyane||60,- Euro|
1 EURO = 40 BEF = 2,1 DFL = 2 DM = 1 USD
Of course these prices are
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!)
To finish a full front & rear view of this unique car :
The money I got by selling this car, was invested in the CitroŽn-powered Super Lomax 424!
