Vehicle Story

This 1979 Citroen 2CV Charleston four-door is a French-built sedan with a full-length retractable canvas top, flip-up side windows, and reupholstered seating. Power comes from a 602cc flat-twin motor which received a recent carburetor rebuild and is connected to a 4-speed manual transmission. Finished in two-tone with an ivory body and burgundy fenders over a light gray cloth interior, this 2CV is now offered with service records, restoration documentation, and a clear South Carolina title in the seller’s name.

The French-built 2CV debuted as an economy family car with a history dating back to the late 1940s, and in the 1970s the model featured flip-up side windows and a full-length retractable black canvas top. This 2CV Charleston from 1979 was repainted in two-tone burgundy and ivory with a gecko pattern on the passenger side rear fender, accented by mud flaps and a European front license plate. The seller notes that that the body is rust-free and the rear fenders are fiberglass replacements. Both bumpers are color-matched in ivory, and brightwork consists of the headlight assemblies, side view mirrors, and door handles.

Color-matched 15” steel wheels feature polished center caps. The front end was recently aligned and received a bushing replacement per the seller.

The interior is fitted with reupholstered white diamond-pattern light gray cloth bucket seats up front and a matching bench in the rear, with maroon vinyl-clad door panels, a black upper dash, and rubber floor covering. The trunk floor is covered in a hinged sheet of plywood which lifts to reveal a spare tire in a storage compartment.

Instrumentation includes a 120-km/h speedometer and gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 86k kilometers, although true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

The air-cooled 602cc H2 flat-twin motor received a carburetor rebuild within the last 500 miles and the electrical system has been serviced. The motor carried a factory rating of 29 horsepower. Power is directed to the front wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel.

The sale includes documentation and service records.

ADMIN UPDATE: The seller states that the items pictured above are the documentation records and the specific Citroen fluids that will be included in the sale of the vehicle.

@Avant – is this a four cylinder car? ...

No, 2cv only came with 2 cylinders. This one is the "big" engine with 602cc but the first model came with a 375cc delivering... 9hp.

@Avant – in the engine compartment there appear to be some piping on both sides in front which are thoroughly rusted. do these need to be replaced? and what are they for? thanks. ...

Yes, they're the exhaust pipes from both cylinders (called "horned beast" in french because it kind of looks like a longhorn's skull). It's pretty thick metal so I didn't intend on replacing them before several years (no perforation at all and still pretty solid). It's a pretty cheap part though when the times come (34 euros, or 40-ish dollars, probably double it with the transportation costs) : https://mcda.com/echappements-ami-8/1573-pot-ss-boite-mehari-2cv-6-accadiane-ts.html.

@Avant – looking as best i could at the license plate, it looks like you used it as a daily driver, and it was not registered as and antique??? ...

Correct ! Neither the previous owner nor I registered it as antique. Honestly I didn’t even think about it, both the registration fee here and SC and the insurance are really cheap even as a « normal » car! In France I’d definitely have registered it as antique.

@Avant – this takes me back to the bushings issue. i dont know if there are bushing on rear wheels, i imaagne there must be. but what made you change the front wheel bushings??/ ...

I was feeling vibrations (beyond the normal classic ride), and took it to a specialist. The vibrations came specifically from the front, and now they’re completely gone.

@Avant – so did you install the muffler, or did it come to you like that. in othere words, do i need a new muffler and exhaust pipes???? ...

No it came to me like that. It doesn’t need to be replaced - actually has I not gotten the expat, I would have kept driving it with no other parts replacement or renovation planned.

@Avant – the muffler looks as tho it has holes in it? when was it installed? why is there not exhaust pipe running to the rear of the car. it appears to exit mid car?/// ...

No, there are no holes in the muffler? So you’re right, in 2cvs normally it exits at the rear end. Another AutoHunter found the answer: this is the « Méhari » mount.

@Avant – appreciate such quick responses. thanks. was this car ever in an accident. why did they do the rear fenders with fiberglass? ...

Sure, my pleasure, always fun to talk about my car! No accident that I’m aware of (other parts would have been damaged i guess); I it’s only a few square inches fiberglass ; per the previous owner they were bent beyond « normal repair » but not sure if it happened during transportation or earlier.
