Post 1965 2CV AZ
Some months ago, I spotted a 1965 2CV AZ on the internet. It was advertised by a NL dealer in the middle of our country.
As I pointed it out to my brother, it seemed that he was interested too, so we both went to see the AZ . In the end we bought the car and now I am co-owner of a AZ plus a spare engine !
We want to restore it and make it roadworthy.
The colour is AC 118 ME , Gris Etna, where as the ME stands for Merville, the producer of the paint.
The engine is original, but someone took it out and put it in again without any care at all.
The engine is not stuck, but we will have to split it , because one of the cylinders is not getting any oil , so the seller told us. The extra engine is for spares for the original engine . Any way it is a new adventure and as my brother is a keen 2CV enthousiast himselve we will have a mutual hobby as to turn the ugly duck into a beautiful swan.
Some pics.

Leave the body as is, restore the chassis and running gear and above all else channel it like citroen intended!
Nice purchase.

Finally we started to strip the AZ.
The body was , as expected ; Floor parts, sills,trunck-floor, the part over the hood hinge and the bulkhead are rusted with parts entirely rusted away .

We expected the chassis in pretty good condition, but it turned out to be worse than what we thought.
So the challange for restoration is bigger now.
People tell us to buy a new chassis, but we are determed to try and safe it. If failled, we will consider a new one .
For now it is savable in our oppinion , time will tell if it will .

Last weekend we dug in deeper into the chassis and found that it is savable.
After removing dirt , leaves , some slugs and one or two mouse-nests it did not look tooo bad .
