At a Glance:

Year Make Model Mileage SOLD FOR
1952 Citroen 11BL 63,000 (Not Warranted) £13,500.00 + buyers premium


French manufactured 1952. MOT exempt and historic tax classification. Small boot marchal headlights, grey cloth interior, black body. In my view the better looking traction variant.
Purchased through John Gillard (well known traction restorer) who restored it about 8 years ago for the previous owner. It was driven from London to Sidmouth by John when the vendor purchased it 2016. Very good condition body mechanically. Last serviced by the owner Sept last year. He has fitted a new distributor carburettor in the last 2 years. Converted to 12v electrics. Two sets of keys, one fits boot, door and ignition all matching one for petrol cap. Waxoiled in all cavities and underside.

Auctioneers Notes: This is, undoubtedly, one of the nicest Citroen’s of this period to come to our auction house.  The restoration still looks very fresh after 8 years and that beautiful cloth trim (seats, door cards, roof lining) is as nice as it was when supplied new.  Mechanically, the engine is quiet and pulls well, these cars are very advanced for their age, independent suspension all round, rack and pinion steering and front wheel drive – so she rides and handles like a more modern motor car.  She only comes the market due to the vendor’s health issues.  May be viewed by appointment
