Hi all

 

Has anyone any idea what the identity of this lovely old Citroen is

I have looked on the interweb but can't find anything like it.

 

Cheers

It might have some Citroen mechanicals - look at the narrow front wheels/tyres and their camber indicating a 2CV or Dyane 6 set-up - but the rest is a kit or special. Citroen have made nothing like this, and I suspect the reproduction badge (which is a style from before WW2) is a token add-on. If this were a true Citroen it would have their "double chevron" symbol somewhere on the radiator. As the registration plate is Dutch maybe you can narrow-down the search to private special/kit car makers from that country.

Wow, that was quick.Thanks for that, and its not a Citroen at all. That explains why all that googling led me nowhere. The dutch plate is a red herring - its a Quebec car and here in Quebec we are not obliged to have a front number plate, only the back. I have no idea why, its the only country where I have ever seen this. As a result of this people put any kind of plate they like on the front, like this Dutch one. 

Cheers

That is an oddity, looks like its on 2CV running gear, given the weird angle of the front wheels on full lock
