Just benefits, not the burdens. A classic 2cv, with more modern technology.
A customer of ours dreamed of a ripple bonnet 2cv. Cool and classic, great details, nice and simple. But with 12hp on board you can’t really expect to burn rubber and he wanted to be able to keep up with the current traffic.
What to do? Find yourself a nice project car, combine it with the chassis and technical components of a modern 2cv. Disc brakes, 12V electrical system, modern drive shafts. These are real advantages if you want to drive less clunky and more reliable. Later he went a step further, and put a 652cc engine in it, to make it all go even smoother.
The body was restored and repainted in its original color, with the paint being slightly satinated for a more classic look. The technical parts were completely renewed and overhauled and have now done 4000 km. The interior, roof and many other details are also new. A galvanised chassis was used as the basis. Everything was put together with care.
You drive it for a while, have a lot of fun and then it starts to itch… there is already a new project in his shed. So now we are looking for a new enjoyer for this restomod.
