1989 Citroën 2CV6 Dolly

Highlights


  • 50,349 genuine miles
  • Only 3 previous owners
  • Distinctive appearance

THE APPEAL


The iconic 2CV. Citroën’s recognisable, affordable family car that reigned for 42 years. Its inexpensive cost and servicing requirements helped it become one of France’s and Europe's best-selling vehicles and the first front-wheel drive car to reach 1 million units produced.

This 1989 registered variant is one of the last to be produced, with changes in European emission standards very few late 2CVs were made. It was purchased in 2021 by the current owner as a nostalgic reminder of their younger years. Registered with the DVLA as a Dolly and with some of the distinctive red colour scheme poking through in places, this 2CV now wears a black and grey Charleston livery and presents really well.

Overall, this car is very well put together, mechanically sound and in great health thanks to its previously dry stored life, it could benefit from some additional attention for perfection to be reached, however, it can still be used and enjoyed immediately.

SUMMARY


The characterful, quaint Citroën 2CV6 is a recognisable French icon. Initially released post-war to be an affordable solution for the French population, it soon became a global superstar before being retired after 42 years of production.

This later 1989 model is one of the last cars to come off the production line, just as the modern world was starting to overshadow the 2CVs simplistic approach. This remarkable car helped generation after generation get on the road and thanks to low ownership and low mileage life we expect this little Citroën will continue to do so for many years to come.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
