The Attractions

The innovations that made the Traction Avant so successful and so long-lived in its day are the reason these cars are still so attractive and usable now. And there are no four-seater saloons with 70 years on their shoulders with more character than this one.

Here we have one of the last 11Bs with the practical wider and longer body. It is one of the last to feature the original suspension configuration. It is an extremely original car, fortunately never modified, but one that shows its considerable age in a fascinating way.

ASI-certified, it is an excellent example of these very important and fascinating saloons.
