Description: 1934 Citroën Traction 7 Sport Roadster No reserve Titre de circulation suisse Châssis n° 021208 Caisse n°AR06165 - Rarissime version Sport - Restauration de qualité - Important dossier de factures - Sans réserve La traction 7S fût créée avec un but évident d''étoffer au plus vite la gamme avec un modèle plus puissant. Dérivée de la version 7B, elle s''en distinguait par un moteur 11cv plus puissant. Modèle de transition préfigurant l''arrivée de la 11 Légère, la 7 Sport est rarissime en version roadster. L''attestation d''identification délivrée par Citroën Heritage nous indique que cet exemplaire fût construit le 12 décembre 1934. Une copie de son ancienne carte grise nous apprend qu''il fût immatriculé en 1954 dans Loir et Cher, avant d''être acheté par un amateur du même département en 1968, puis en 1979 par son actuel propriétaire. La carrosserie a été entièrement décapée avant d''être repeinte avec sous couche époxy, l''ensemble de la sellerie a été refait, au même titre que la mécanique et l''électricité confiés à un spécialiste Suisse, M.Gysin. Si les jantes ainsi que le carburateur proviennent d''une version ultérieure, et qu''un alternateur a été installé, les clignotants et rétroviseurs ont été ajoutés pour être en conformité avec le code de la route Suisse. On retrouve par ailleurs les nombreux détails spécifiques à cette version et qui en font tout l''intérêt. En plus d''être rarissime dans cette version Sport, notre exemplaire se trouve dans un superbe état de présentation et de fonctionnement. Agrémenté d''un porte bagage accessoire, il saura satisfaire l''amateur exigeant à la recherche d''un cabriolet qui ne manquera pas de faire parler les connaisseurs. Swiss title Chassis n ° 021208 Case n ° AR06165 - Rare Sports version - High quality restoration - Significant invoice folder - No reserve The 7S Traction Avant was created with the obvious aim of expanding the range with a more powerful model. Derived from version 7B, it was distinguished by a more powerful 11hp engine. The 7 Sport is very rare in its roadster version. The certificate issued by Citroën Heritage states that this particular car was manufactured on the 12 December 1934. A copy of its old registration document mentions that it was registered in 1954 in the Loir et Cher region, before being bought by an enthusiast from the same district in 1968, and then in 1979 by its current owner. The bodywork was completely stripped before being repainted with an undercoat of epoxy, the entire upholstery was redone, as well as the mechanicals and electricals, entrusted to a Swiss specialist, Mr. Gysin. The rims and the carburetor come from a later version, and an alternator has been installed. The turn indicators and mirrors have been added to comply with the Swiss regulations. In addition to being a very rare Sport version, the car on offer is in a superb condition and runs very well. The car is equipped with an accessory luggage rack and will satisfy the most demanding of enthusiasts.
