Collecting this in a fortnight.......

Recommended Posts

....involves trains, and boats and planes............decided to flog off everything, and put all my eggs [where they won't get broken, according to advertising..] in one basket.attachicon.gifIMG_2029.JPG

French, wasn’t the 2cv the egg carrier.

 

And saw this the other day, beautiful thing. Well bought.

Gorgeous! The same colours as my old Pallas. Almost twins aside from the mirrors. 

 

 

Wishing you lots of luck. Such wonderful cars to drive and stare at.

C matic for added 'shite points.........

Oh god! Do you know what you’re getting into?

I’m not being a franco killjoy, as someone who’d have a rust free cx as a daily car tomorrow, but is the gearbox oil still available?

 

Edit - my first car was a 2cv, my second a (manual) CX Pallas. How’s that for a culture leap!

I think Total T is still available from the Citroën car club.  I wasn't a huge fan of the C-matic to be honest, but it definitely adds an extra je ne sais quoi to what is already a fascinating vehicle.

 

Excellent purchase!

Great then, enjoy the experience! I did have a few spares left, but managed to give them away at last year’s GSA rally.

 

If you’re new to CXs watch out for a leaky de-aeration chamber ( black bottle thing next to the reservoir). It was £4.50 last time I bought one, but I doubt citron sell them now.

I don’t think that year has a problem with oil pressure switches but they’re not a bad glove box spare for £5.

And if the heater fan stops working it’s either the resistor pack in the air intake trunking or a break in the wires under the central console below the aircraft style levers.

Good luck, I’m envious!
