HISTORY :

I had discovered this Traction in March 1995 in the excellent monthly magazine "Citroën Revue" under the title "To drive the new Traction". At the time it only had 35,000Kms on the clock. The well known Traction specialist, Philippe Chauvet, had obtained the car from her first owner, a Mr Dupont. Mr Dupont had stored the car during the second world war in the centre of France in order to return her following the war to Paris. When I contacted Mr Chauvet, he had already sold the car. I found it again 13 years later in a photo in a small advertisement, with a further 9000kms on the clock. After prolonged negotiations, a deal was agreed, and I left by train to go to Paris.

The car is still in the same state of conservation: exceptional! I returned at the wheel of what is going to be the oldest car in the museum. We covered 900km of route nationae, whithout any mechanical problems, in a Traction smooth and gentle, without mishap or any unexpected noises. An excellent journey.
