1959 Citroën 2CV

400cc w/centrifugal clutch

1959 Citroën 2CV 469156. Nice early car with distinctive suicide doors and corrugated bonett.

425cc air-cooled motor; 4-speed manual transmission and Trafficlutch – you can come to a stop and leave it in gear without depressing the clutch pedal. When time you go, simply pull-away by pressing on the accelerator. Shifting into higher gears in the 4-speed transmission is done with the conventional floor-mounted clutch pedal.

Known to be durable and easily serviced; it’ll get you there in style …at a leisurely pace.

Here is a fine synopsis of the 2CV experience. Similar specification car also with the centrifugal clutch.

Honda Acty HH3-2003247 w/140k miles (237k km). 5-speed / 2WD. Simple little rig that should deliver 40+ MPG under normal driving conditions. Fairly comfortable at 100 KMH / 65MPH. 

A few small bumps and bruises but maybe its what you need for kicking around the neighborhood; taking your dog to the park; or your light hauling needs.
