Mr Paul Primault was a retired forestry manager. In 1985, he decided to buy a Visa and visited the Citroen dealer in Chapelle Saint-Luc, near Troyes. They managed to sell him the GT, the most expensive but also the most responsive variant, even though our brave 73 year old man did not have speed as a priority.
He died ten years later, and his daughter inherited the Visa. She also did not appreciate the responsiveness of the car and decided to quickly part with it. She contacted her most local dealer, Mr Norbert Prive of Bar-sur-Aube. An enlightened connoisseur, he kept the car safely for 25 years. He used it sparingly, only making one long trip to the Eurocitro meeting at Le Mans.
Every year I host the Activa Club for a guided tour, which is how I heard about this car. Arriving to look at it, I received a warm welcome. Norbert combines good humour with great competence, after a life devoted to the marque. The purchase was made in complete confidence.
