Rust in peace...

  1. I've got a '61 4CV, as do my folks. Dad's about got his restored. I'd like to get mine over here to use as a city car. His had an original 28 hp 750cc engine, mine has a 105 hp 1.4 liter. Front suspension is pretty good. The rear, however, is uber-scary.
     
  2. this isn't a Citroen 4cv this is a Renault 4. BTW my dad had a 4CV and a Dianne probably the most fun car one can trash around the twists.

    The Renault 4 and the Renault 4CV are different cars. The one in the first pictures here is a Renault 4CV, like mine and my folks'. The Citroen you are thinking of is the 2CV.

    I was building mine more like this one:

  4. If it wasn't for the sad condition of the car, I would call it an impressive photoshoot

    You are totally correct, for some stupid reason I mistake a 4 for a 2, I 'm sorry. Altough I'm sure that most of the european's here will know the 4 better as the 4L or quatre L
     
  6. talking about citroen 2CV..
    did you know they accomodate real easily a ducati engine?

    saw a 2CV kitcar recently aquiped with a 916 engine.
    it was a three wheeler, named merlin
     
  7. I've seen one with a V8, totally different suspension, mega-wide tires. It cruises through my area every now and then. It's such a boss machine.
