On February 6, 1954, Automóveis Citroën, the dealer in Lisbon, delivered a Citroën 2cv A to Direcçao Geral dos Serviços Pecuários. This government service was located in a beautiful building at Rua Vitor Cordon 4, it still exists, check it out on Streetview.

This service was established in 1919 to improve animal welfare and hygiene around animal products. One of the reasons was the outbreak of the Spanish flu and the many victims that the pandemic caused. Sounds topical.

The officials would not have just ruled from behind their desks, they had to go into the country. Simple transport was desired, which could take you everywhere, even on bumpy paths in the countryside. A 2cv fitted in perfectly. Nobody was in a rush. Fortunately, because with 375cc and 9hp a moped was almost faster ...

The next step in its life is the registration, in 1967, in the name of Joaquim Maria Luiz from Marateca, near Palmela. This town is located just southeast of Lisbon, on the estuary where the Sado River flows. This environment is a national park and internationally recognized wetland. A moderate, humid climate, with water with a high salt content. Ideal environment for metal to rust.

That is what happened. The 2cv was stopped by Joaquim after some time due to a problem with the engine. It is still partly dismantled. It presumably disappeared in the corner of a barn. The original gray paint has already been supplemented once for preservation, but it was not successful everywhere. Some places are still solid, others wafer thin.

But much is still very original. The single rear light and the rear left reflector, the small rear window, the oddly shaped front (inner) wings, the wheels with hollow rim, the thick fuel filler pipe, no tailgate. All typical things for the early A’s, this one is from the fourth year of production. It also still has the engine that is mentioned on the license plate, its first.

Great find. To leave it as it is, or to give it a new lease of life. We can assist you in that.

This AZAM6 was found in Liège in the 1990s. Even at that time quite a rare appearance. It was kidnapped and restored to the Netherlands. We don't know exactly in what condition it was, but at least it got new floorboards and some other parts. It drove in the east of Holland for some time, then in Friesland for 20 years. ...


Once, a long, long time ago (2001…) an AZAM came from France to Holland. It was really solid, but had some dents and surface rust. The pedal box was the only constructive part that was less good. It found a new owner through us. He took a few years to get it restored to his taste. He replaced the pedal box, completely ...
