Film of Citroen Factory c1934


Recommended Posts

Superb film of the Citroen factory in the 1930s. They're making the famous Traction Avant which were produced from 1934 to 1957. I think this was the first mass-produced front wheel drive car. Note that it uses uni-body construction as well as 4-wheel independent suspension. Citroen bought the body stamping technology from then Budd Company of Philadelphia. Note also the heavy use of aluminum. It's in French, but no translation needed.
