@fitheach The car looks surprisingly modern for 1943. The extra seats in the back are fun, but you better hope there's no rain coming. 😃
Those rear seats would hardly get any use here, you'd either freeze or get soaked. I also wonder what the buffeting would be like once the car got up some speed.
Still, it would be a cool car to have for summer time in the city.
@fitheach Gotta hold onto those hats. 😜
Ah, they had some fearsome hat pins in those days.
Close but not the same. Saw this at the San Diego auto museum.
Museum? I still see people driving them. 😃
In a way they were France's answer to the Volkswagen Beetle. They were/are spartan inside by modern standards, but fairly roomy. Unlike the car from 1943 they had plenty of headroom for both front and rear passengers.
I'd say the 2CV is a design classic. In that sense it deserves its place in a museum.
