Non-Radio – the Little Citroens – 2CV6 and Dyane

Everybody should have a two-cylinder car, right? Here are some of ours.

Since first driving a Citroen 2CV in Spain while a teenager, I’ve liked these small cars. I drove on all over Germany and surrounds, then have owned a handful since returning stateside.

The pretty car is the XYL’s, and it is a 1983 model that was imported stateside late in 2018. The car is our second car while on Washington Island.

The red car is an even less common Dyane model from 1969, which is a current project. It is low mileage and mechanically very sound, new interior is in with a bit of trim to complete, and next will be the paint.

Both of the cars have 602cc engines, air cooled, and four speed transmissions. Both have aftermarket electronic ignition and are ready to drive coast to coast.

The 2CV6 came to us all pretty, and my work has been limited to fitting the electronic ignition and routine service.

There is a massively inclusive write up of the history of the 2CV series which you can find at https://infogalactic.com/info/Citro%C3%ABn_2CV
