Few cars were built in the last century that had as much character as the Citroën Traction Avant. With this Citroën also came the definitive breakthrough of front-wheel drive. Over time he appeared in various versions. Maybe that's why quite a few have been preserved and luckily you will come across several in the summer months.

In the 'birth certificate' of this beautiful and lovable Citroën states that it was registered in the Netherlands in 1974. We are now 47 years later. In the showroom of Lijzenga in Damwoude, this idiosyncratic, beautiful, special car evokes a certain feeling. Is it because of appearance or maybe because of memories? Some classics drift from memory, but come back quickly when, as in this case, you come face to face with this enviously beautiful Citroën Traction Avant.
You rarely see as beautiful as this 89-DV-52, it has clearly been well taken care of. If you look at the details such as the special extra vent window, the proof of membership on the grille, you can see that the car has been pampered.
You can discover something about your classic hobby at any time. A look at this well-stocked one proves that Citroënshowroom. An enthusiast always scrutinizes his eyes, and sometimes that longing to own a classic comes spontaneously. They are much nicer and more fun. But the reality is also that desires often remain desires. And that's no problem. We can also enjoy it when someone else owns the car and gives us the opportunity to reflect on it for a moment.
