Description

1925 Citroën 5HP Type C3 "Trèfle"
No reserve

Succession d'un amateur de Citroën

Carte grise française
Châssis n°50466
Moteur n°54147

- Authentique version " Trèfle "
- Joli projet de remise en route
- Etat de présentation homogène
- Sans réserve

La Citroën 5 HP est lancée au Salon de Paris 1921 sous la forme d'un petit torpédo dit " Type C " qui évoluera en C2 pour 1923 (avec un châssis renforcé) puis en C3 (empattement allongé) pour 1925. Celle-ci est proposée en torpédo et en cabriolet deux places ainsi qu'en torpédo trois places en trèfle. C'est cette dernière version qui est aujourd'hui la plus recherchée par les collectionneurs et qui est ici présentée.
Cet exemplaire est sorti d'usine en février 1925 et a rejoint la collection en 2004 alors qu'il était auparavant dans l'Essonne. En effet, pas de collection Citroën digne de ce nom sans un Trèfle, et c'est fort de ce constat que notre collectionneur avait sélectionné cette voiture, séduit par son degré de conformité à l'origine. La restauration ancienne dont elle a bénéficié lui confère un véritable charme et un état de présentation homogène. La voiture a cessé de rouler il y'a quelques années, mais sa remise en route, après les contrôles habituels, ne devrait être qu'une formalité. Nous avons d'ailleurs relevé qu'entre 2004 et aujourd'hui, la voiture avait parcouru 53 km ! Sous le capot, nous avons noté que le refroidissement avait été amélioré par l'adaptation d'une hélice à 4 pales. La capote est en bon état d'usage et complétée d'une housse et d'un couvre tonneau. Cette sympathique 5HP dispose d'intéressants équipements d'époque à l'image de l'essuie-glace manuel à double raclette, de l'éclairage de tableau de bord, du klaxon à poire pour la ville et électrique pour la route… autant de détails désuets qui nous replongent à l'époque des premiers automobilistes. Après une révision complète, cet intéressant torpédo pourra reprendre le chemin de la route, n'attirant que sympathie et étonnement sur son passage.

Merci de noter que les véhicules de cette collection ne seront pas exposés au Garage privé d'Artcurial, mais seront visibles sur rendez-vous du 18 au 23 octobre 2021 à Chilly Mazarin (91380)

MERCI DE NOTER QUE LA VOITURE EST VENDUE SANS CONTROLE TECHNIQUE.



French title
Chassis n ° 50466
Engine n ° 54147

- Authentic "Trèfle" version
- A nice project that needs restarting
- Homogeneous condition
- No reserve

The Citroën 5 HP was launched at the 1921 Paris Motor Show in the form of a small torpedo called "Type C" which would evolve into C2 in 1923 (with a reinforced chassis) then into C3 (extended wheelbase) in 1925. The last was available as a torpedo and a two-seater convertible as well as a three-seater trèfle. It is this last version which is today the most sought after by collectors and which is on offer here.
This example left the factory in February 1925 and joined the collection in 2004, after it had spent some time in Essonne. Indeed, no Citroën collection is worthy of the name without a Trèfle, and it is on this basis that our collector had selected this car. An old restoration gives the car a real charm and a homogeneous state of presentation. The car stopped being used a few years ago, but restarting it, after the usual checks, should only be a formality. We also noted that between 2004 and today, the car had covered just 53 km! Under the hood, we noticed that the cooling had been improved by the adaption of a 4-blade propeller. The soft top is in good used condition and completed with a cover and a tonneau cover. This 5HP has interesting period equipment such as the manual double squeegee wiper, dashboard lighting, pear horn for the city and electric for the road... so many obsolete details that take us back to the time of the first motorists. After a complete overhaul, this interesting torpedo will be ready for the road again, attracting empathy and astonishment.

Please note that the vehicles in this collection will not be exhibited at Artcurial's private garage, but will be visible by appointment from 18 to 23 October 2021 in Chilly Mazarin (91380)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CAR IS SOLD WITHOUT TECHNICAL INSPECTION.

Estimation 10 000 - 15 000 €

Conditions of Purchase

Artcurial SAS is an operator of voluntary auction sales regulated by the law articles L321-4 and following of the Code de Commerce. In such capacity Artcurial SAS acts as the agent of the seller who contracts with the buyer. The relationships between Artcurial SAS and the buyer are subject to the present general conditions of purchase which can be modified by saleroom notices or oral indications before the sale, which will be recorded in the official sale record.

1. GOODS FOR AUCTION
a) The prospective buyers are invited to examine any goods in which they may be interested, before the auction takes place, and notably during the exhibitions. Artcurial SAS is at disposal of the prospective buyers to provide them with reports about the conditions of lots.
b) Description of the lots resulting from the catalogue, the reports, the labels and the verbal statements or announcements are only the expression by Artcurial SAS of their perception of the lot, but cannot constitute the proof of a fact.
c) The statements made by Artcurial SAS about any restoration, mishap or harm arisen concerning the lot are only made to facilitate the inspection thereof by the prospective buyer and remain subject to his own or to his expert's appreciation. The absence of statements by Artcurial SAS relating to a restoration, mishap or harm, whether made in the catalogue, condition reports, on labels or orally, does not imply that the item is exempt from any current, past or repaired defect. Inversely, the indication of any defect whatsoever does not imply the absence of any other defects.
d) Estimates are provided for guidance only and cannot be considered as implying the certainty that the item will be sold
for the estimated price or even within the bracket of estimates. Estimates cannot constitute any warranty assurance whatsoever. The estimates may be provided in several currencies; the conversions may be rounded off differently than the legal rounding.
e) Only the authenticity of the vehicle is guaranteed, any buyer should take into consideration any reservations made in the description.
f) The vehicles are sold in their current condition. The information in the catalogue is not binding. Indeed, the condition of a car may vary between the time of its description in the catalogue and the time of its presentation at the sale. The exhibition taking place for several days prior to the sale and allowing awareness of the condition of the vehicles, no complaint will be accepted once the sale by auction is pronounced.
g) For administrative pupose, the designations of the vehicles use the information given on the official vehicle registration documentation.
h) The bidders are deemed to have read the documentation relating to each vehicle, notably the technical inspections which are available at the auction sales company. However, some vehicles may be sold without having been submitted to the examination of technical inspection because of their age, of their noncirculating condition or of their competition aspect. Vehicles with foreign registrations are offered without French technical inspection. The public will have to inquire about it at the time of the preview and sale.
i) The buyer is exclusively responsible for the change of registration of vehicles, notably within the time limit set forth by law.

2. THE SALE
a) In order to assure the proper organisation of the sales, prospective buyers are invited to make themselves known to Artcurial SAS before the sale, so as to have their personal identity data recorded. Artcurial SAS reserves the right to ask any prospective buyer to justify his identity as well as his bank references and to request a deposit. Artcurial SAS reserves the right to refuse admission to the auction sales premises to any prospective buyer for legitimate reasons.
b) Any person who is a bidder undertakes to pay personally and immediately the hammer price increased by the costs to be born by the buyer and any and all taxes or fees/expenses which could be due. Any bidder is deemed acting on his own behalf except when prior notification, accepted by Artcurial SAS, is given that he acts as an agent on behalf of a third party.
c) The usual way to bid consists in attending the sale on the premises. However, Artcurial SAS may graciously accept to receive some bids by telephone from a prospective buyer who has expressed such a request before the sale. Artcurial SAS will bear no liability / responsability whatsoever, notably if the telephone contact is not made, or if it is made too late, or in case of mistakes or omissions relating to the reception of the telephone. For variety of purposes, Artcurial SAS reserves its right to record all the telephone communications during the auction. Such records shall be kept until the complete payment of the auction price, except claims.
d) Artcurial SAS may accept to execute orders to bid which will have been submitted before the sale and by Artcurial SAS which have been deemed acceptable. Artcurial SAS is entitled to request a deposit which will be refunded within 72 hours after the sale if the lot is not sold to this buyer. Should Artcurial SAS receive several instructions to bid for the same amounts, it is the instruction to bid first received which will be given preference. Artcurial SAS will bear no liability/responsibility in case of mistakes or omission of performance of the written order.
e) In the event where a reserve price has been stipulated by the seller, Artcurial SAS reserves the right to bid on behalf of the seller until the reserve price is reached. The seller will not be admitted to bid himself directly or through an agent. The reserve price may not be higher than the low estimate for the lot printed in the catalogue or publicly modified before the sale.

In case of challenge or dispute, Artcurial SAS reserves the right to designate the successful bidder, to continue the bidding or to cancel it, or to put the lot back up for bidding.
g) Subject to the decision of the person conducting the bidding for Artcurial SAS, the successful bidder will be the bidder who would have made the highest bid provided the final bid is equal to or higher than the reserve price if such a reserve price has been stipulated. The hammer stroke will mark the acceptance of the highest bid and the pronouncing of the word "adjugé" or any equivalent will amount to the conclusion of the purchase contract between the seller and the last bidder taken in consideration. No lot will be delivered to the buyer until full payment has been made.In case of payment by an ordinary draft/check, payment will be deemed made only when the check will have been cashed.
h) So as to facilitate the price calculation for prospective buyers, a currency converter may be operated by Artcurial SAS as guidance only. Nevertheless, the bidding is made in euro only and Artcurial SAS will not be liable for errors of conversion.
