1958 Citroen 2CV Van info and parts needed

Recommended Posts

 

That appears older than my van. I believe the engine in mine is from around 1960.

Thank you sebastienbuick. I will provide this information to the person who will check the components of my generator once I figure out how to get the field coils out. There's been too much going on for me to get any garage time!

It looks like a great video. I wish I spoke French! Even with the language barrier, I think I'll be able to pick up a few things from this. Thanks again!

hello, it is true that it is not easy to understand when it is not good language.
if you want I can have a question to the person who made this video?

Thank you, once again, Sebastien. I won't have much time for car work for a while but I'll keep your kind offer in mind.

I have driven it and it runs great. There has been too much going on lately and that has kept me out of the garage! Also, my desire to work on cars goes down with the temperature. Not much work in the garage when winter sets in. Have you had much time with your Buick?

hello, ok yes indeed it is true that with the cold that happens we have less time to work outside :(.
yes this weekend I almost finished dismantling the screws of silentbloc (rubber between the chassis and the body) :)

As the season for outside car work ends, I was getting ready to store my toys for the winter. However, we had a nice sunny day so my wife and I went out to lunch in the 2cv one more time before winter storage. Great day!

No, I haven't worked on the dynamo yet. Probably will wait until the spring. I also don't believe that is a Silverado in the background but I'm not completely sure!

Here's one being used to promote a business. Looks like it could truck a lot of weight the way it is jacked up in the rear.

 

At least with my older, worn suspension, that extra lift in the back disappears pretty quickly with a load.
