In good company .... PCD Saxon .... what is probably one of the most revolutionary Hillclimb cars of its time (and ever) .... class designer chasing ultimate lightness .... specially designed wheel centres with only three wheel nuts being part of getting it down to an astounding 218 kg all up weight.

Our local classic car restorer Mal, the one who helped me strip and re-spray my Land Rover, acquired a 2CV van last year for nothing. It had been abandoned in a nearby pub car park after breaking down, and after several weeks a salvage company was contacted. Mal heard about this and a deal made with the owner that if he could remove it before lunch the following day it was his.

A full strip, some minor welding and a re-wire ensued revealing an otherwise mechanically sound vehicle. As it was so good Mal was encouraged to spend extra time on it and a full re-spray ensued. Apparently the vans attract higher prices now than the cars.

Great to see you bought a "shed" xmascontent , you are going to have a lot of fun with that, I have a lot of love for the 2CV having done many miles in an Ami 8 with identical running gear.

It's the perfect match for Kev. Creaky, old, well past its best but loved by many.

Amazing, if it's using a Suzuki engine then I think the whole donor bike weights in around 230kg. Almost looks as though there are no front brakes or very small rotors. Was it successful?
