|Registration Number:||EHW 914W|
|Otherwise known as:|
|Year Of Manufacture:||1981|
|Owned From:||10th May 1997|
|Owned To:||Jan 2004|
|Current Location:||United Kingdom|
|Notes:||A very original and surprisingly rust free example in this rare colour. Had a new Frome galvanised chassis fitted along with new front 1/4 floors, inner & outer lower bulkhead, s/h steering rack, new shocks, low mileage disc brake gearbox fitted, all braking system replaced, waxoyled etc!|
|Fate:||Sold to Graham Wilson's 2cv workshop in Callington, Cornwall.|
|Modifications:||I ran it with lowered suspension for a couple of years until i hit a protruding manhole cover & ripped the suspension tube mount clean off! Obviously i'd lowered it a tad too much!
That's how come it had to have a new Chassis, i ran it lowered again after chassis replacement, albeit not as low as before, i attended the 2003 Isleworth national meeting in it, managed the trip home to Cornwall in 3 1/2 hours, who says 2cv's are slow! Really wish i hadn't sold it!!!!
|Accolades:||It's greatest accolade that i'm aware of was being picked as 'car of the week' on this website!!!|
