Post 1955 Traction Avant 11cv
My neighbour just took me into his barn and showed me his Citroen Traction from around 1955. Been sate there for 30 years. I had a quick look over it and he has left me the keys to the barn to go back in daylight.

I don't want it and I am not 100% sure what he wants me to do with is (very local French) but I was just wondering what something like this is worth - are they ten a penny or do people search them out. Just in case he is thinking of selling it (probably thinks I will buy it as I am English and just bought to Vans). It does have the wheels but no tires and the engine seems to rotate (non bloqué). Any ideas :?: :?:

Some of the dashboard parts are the same in my AZU :shock:

Think I answered my own question. This is the identical model.

When PSA goes bust perhaps we can all club together and buy the Conservatoire. :lol:

Post Re: Anyone know about Tractions?
Where can I get the wheel nuts for a traction from.

My neighbour came round asking if I can get them so he can move the car back to either his place or mine.... its not coming to mine :roll:

He is missing the wheel nuts and has asked me to get some.... (I rent his field so i have to be nice and he may become the next Mairie :D )

Cheers
Ian

Just 5 for each wheel :lol:

Not sure he wants to sell or he wants me to get it on the road and then he will sell. Nothing is straight forward in our village.

I think in the shape it is in it is probably worth around 3 grand. He probably thins 15
