Often credited as the car that beat the horse, Citroën's 2CV first hit the market in 1948 - designed for simplicity, economy and yet packed with innovation, the 'tin snail' opened up the world of the automobile for the general public. The secret was arguably its unique long-travel suspension, which was designed to enable it to traverse ploughed fields. The result was a farmer's car that was unphased by the poor post-war roads.
By the 1980s, the car was still soldiering on - though the world had changed, the desire for fanciful, simple cars hadn't, and the 'Dolly' edition quickly became the biggest seller - thanks to its distinctive deco aesthetic and clever marketing. Production didn't end until 1990 - and even now, it's a hugely popular, easy-to-use classic.
This unique example has been beautifully cared for, following a comprehensive restoration - and boasts a rather unique yet incomprehensibly apt denim interior.

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.
Car & Classic 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.
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.
£0 to £9,999
£10,000 to £49,999
£50,000 to £99,999
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.
We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.
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.
