Very cool, and a nice example.

Hard to believe such a simple little car can draw so much money, but considering the asking prices for old VW buses nowadays, it's almost a bargain.

It seems to have US DOT features and the emblems look more modern.  I wonder if it has some type of modifications to allow it to be imported?  The 1966 could be to avoid emissions regulations.  A lot of money for an unclear title situation.

It's quite likely an 1988, it's not a 1966. A 1966 is much more Spartan than this. The Dolly was sort of a more basic cousin to the Charleston, made for a few years in the 1980's.  1988 was the last year for French-built 2CV.

It was fairly common for newer 2-CV models to have an earlier Data Plate attached from a "legit" car from allowed model years. There appear to have been many non-USA vehicles currently titled under less than correct circumstances.

When you translate 88, from French into English. The translation is 66.🤔

 

 

So that's why French trains never ran on time.

My 1964 2-CV 435 cc topped out at 55 mph, and didn't like hills, but was a blast to drive.

Driving a fast car slowly is nowhere as much as blast as driving a slow car FAST !

Suspension travel is amazing to the point of rediculous,

and you could take fast hard turns on all 4 wheels and the door handles
