The 2cv is quite a interesting story....There was a army general who was injured in battle in the 2nd world war. He damaged his back/spine & needed a car which could seat him comfortably.He sent letters to lots of different car manufacturers in the 50s & only citroen replied. They said they could raise the roof & lift his seat so that he could sit comfortably.So the car is a one off as the car was specially made for the general.I will get some more pics of it.It is a very early 2cv with a ripple bonnet.I will try and get some more pics of it soonCheersRawy

wow! You Grandad owns that ripple! I've only seen it in the metal once - it was on display at the 2cv world meeting, Kelso, Scotland back in 2005. I remember an article from Classic & Sportscar magazine back in the very early 90's just after it had been re-discovered after a long time in storage...Brilliant! :D
