An astonishing Citroen 2CV6 Charleston with just 22,759 miles and two owners from new.
Headlamp adjustment control knob, check-button for brake level warning lamp, inertia reel front seatbelts, day/night rear view mirror, hazard warning switch, ashtray, windscreen/floor air distribution control, rear fog lamp, choke control with warning lamp, oil pressure warning lamp, battery charge indicator, removable seats, folding rear bench seat, complete and half opening hood, interior lamp.  Factory options; Enlarged boot opening.
This delightful 2CV is finished in the desirable Charleston colour scheme of Rouge Delage/Noir (dark red/black), code EXY/EKA.  The stunning paint finish boasts a brilliant glossy shine and is a real eye catcher.   Structurally perfect with recent preventative works undertaken by renown Specialists, Deux Chevaux, and still on the original chassis and wearing factory supplied panels.  The incredible low mileage nature of this preserved example is clearly evident with a tiny faint undulation to the finish on the offside rear door, barely noticeable.  All the correct 2CV/Charleston badges are present and the glass is window etched with the original Saint Gobain factory fit items.  Unmarked bumpers and grill help to complete the factory fresh appeal, and the original winter muff grille is present.  The cloth backed vinyl hood remains in excellent condition with only one tiny nick to the outer material.  Even the original dealer plates remain fitted the front being slightly cracked.  An outstanding example of this fun and quirky classic.
The delightfully sparse interior of this French icon is in remarkable condition.  The grey diamond shape seat coverings are pristine and offer renowned Gallic esq levels of comfort!  The immaculate dashboard houses the original Veglia instrument binnacle and all switches, gauges and warning lights are all fully operational and are a delight to use, transporting the driver back to simpler motoring times!  A supplying dealer tax disc holder and manufacturer stickers in the front and rear screens remain in situ.  The floor is perfect and still protected by the original Citroen rubber over-mats.  Factory stickers still remain such as tyre pressure limits on door edge.  The boot floor is spotless and the pristine spare wheel and jack are still present.  Enchanting!
The two cylinder 602cc 28bhp engine with its distinct rumbling soundtrack is instantly familiar and offers a truly unique driving experience at a rather relaxed pace!  The column gear change operates exactly as it should and being like no other car today, is guaranteed to put a big smile on your face. 
The original painted steel wheels with bright spotless chrome hub-caps are presented in impeccable order and support the correct and expensive Michelin Radial X 125R15 tyres with good tread all round.  The vehicle stops quickly and in a straight line with the inboard disc brakes providing adequate stopping power.
Supplied by Citroen Main Agent, Minden Motor Company, and registered new on 4th January 1985, this remarkable example has had just two owners from new.  An original sales invoice made out to Mr A Bennett confirms a purchase price of £3,432 including the optional enlarged boot opening at £39 and Delivery Pack consisting of Chevron Mats (still fitted), bulb kit (still present) and three gallons of fuel.  A post order/pre delivery letter from the supplying dealer to Mr Bennett is in the history file informing him of a Citroen price increase adding a further £32 to his on the road price!  After nearly 30 years of ownership and a mere 21,216 miles covered under his ownership Mr Bennett made the difficult decision to pass this wonderful 2CV Charleston on for the next enthusiast and KGF Classic Cars were entrusted to seek a new owner to enjoy and preserve just as he has.  The second owner, Mr Eyre, purchased the car, named it Monique and ventured down the show circuit.  Unfortunately recent house expansion works will result in the imminent loss of garage space meaning this car is ready for a lucky new custodian.    The Citroen book packs, service record and dealership directory remain in the original A5 wallet, and even an original sales brochure comes with the car and tells the story of ‘The adventures of the Citroen 2CV6 and The Arctic Snowman!
The absolute mechanical simplicity along with a huge network of parts availability and owners club support makes this amazingly low mileage example the ultimate economical and dare to be different classic car.
