Description: 1938 Citroën Traction 11 B cabriolet
Carte grise française
Châssis n° 11B142788

- Version " large " séduisante et recherchée
- Véritable icône automobile
- Etat de présentation satisfaisant

On ne présente plus la Citroën Traction tant ce modèle a marqué de son empreinte l''histoire de l''automobile. Le cabriolet combine toutes les qualités routières de la Traction à une ligne très pure et un agrément d''utilisation supérieur à la berline, grâce à son habitacle découvrable. La version 11 B, qui bénéficie de la carrosserie large, est particulièrement attrayante car spacieuse, pouvant accueillir trois personnes à l''avant. Équipée à l''arrière d''un spider accueillant deux personnes supplémentaires, c''est une voiture extrêmement séduisante. Le cabriolet Traction que nous présentons fut mis en circulation le 30 juin 1938. Il s''agit d''une version 11 B donc " large ". Son actuel propriétaire en fit l''acquisition en 2009 auprès de Philippe Losson spécialiste Citroën reconnu. Bien que l''on ne connaisse pas l''intégralité de l''histoire de la voiture, nous savons que celle-ci a fait un séjour aux Etats-Unis avant de revenir en Europe. Elle faisait partie de la collection de Monsieur Donald "Red" Dellinger, agent Citroën pendant des années à Lewisberry en Pennsylvanie, dont la dispersion se fit aux enchères à la fin de l''année 2008. La voiture restaurée dans le passé est bon état général de présentation et arbore une agréable patine. Sa livrée associe une carrosserie bi-tons bordeaux et noir à un intérieur de couleur biscuit, un couvre-capote assorti et une capote beige. Elle est équipée de jantes Pilote ainsi que d''une boite de vitesse à 4 rapports en lieu et place de la boite 3. Utilisée régulièrement, la voiture fonctionne bien et offrira à son futur propriétaire le plaisir unique de rouler dans un must de la production automobile française.

Chassis n ° 142788

- The more attractive "wider" version
- A true automotive icon
- In decent condition

The Citroën Traction needs no introduction as it has left its imprint on the history of the automobile. The convertible manages to combine all the qualities of the Traction with a very pure design, but with even greater pleasure than the sedan, thanks to the fact that it is a convertible. The version 11 B, which has the advantage of the wider body, is particularly attractive because it is more spacious and can accommodate three people at the front. With the possibility of welcoming two additional people at the rear, it is an extremely attractive car. The cabriolet Traction that we are offering was registered on the 30th of June 1938. Its current owner purchased the car in 2009 from Philippe Losson, a well-known Citroën specialist. Although we do not know the entire history of the car, we know it spent some time in the United States before returning to Europe. It was part of the collection of a certain Mr. Donald "Red" Dellinger, a Citroen agent for years in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania, whose collection was auctioned at the end of 2008. The car has been restored a few years ago is today in a good overall state and has a pleasant patina. Its livery combines a burgundy and black body along with a biscuit-colored interior, with matching hood cover and beige top. It has Pilote rims and a four-speed gearbox instead of three-speeder. Used regularly, the car runs well and will offer its future owner the pleasure of driving an icon of French automotive history.
