This sensational 1948 Citroen 11B Light 15 "Traction Avant" (front wheel drive in English) is in exceptional condition, it has recently been restored from the ground up. The paintwork ,trim, chrome and engine compartment are like new, underneath is as good as on top! It runs and drives beautifully. This example is the rare French built right hand drive model, an unusual combination and one of only a few in Australia, it was delivered new in South Africa we believe as a French Consulate car. The "Traction Avant" was built from 1934-1955, it's unique monocoque design and front wheel drive technology was revolutionary. This 1948 Citroen "Traction Avant" has a 1911cc 4 cylinder engine and a 3 speed gearbox (the gear lever protrudes from the centre of the dash). The "Traction Avant" uses a longditudinal front wheel drive layout set within the wheelbase resulting in very favorable weight distribution and aiding the cars advanced handling characteristics and excellent ride. This car has had the pistons, conrods and cylinder head changed to the later ID19 model with modern style slipper bearings, stronger conrods and aluminium cylinder head, improving the performance and reliability substantially, the original parts are with the carif you wish to change it back!This amazing car is in exceptional condition and could not be restored to this high standard for anywhere near the asking price, a huge credit to it's past owner/restorer.
