Quirky classics up for sale at Shannons Sydney Summer Classic Auction
Enthusiasts looking for a European classic will have some interesting choices at Shannons Sydney Summer Classic Auction on February 20.
From France there is an original left hand drive 1959 Citroen 2CV sedan imported privately after it had undergone an extensive and expensive ground-up restoration in the UK.
The car has been used as a promotional vehicle by its Australian owner, is currently on full NSW registration and comes with a file detailing its restoration.
Offered with no reserve, Shannons expect the 2CV to sell in the $12 000 to $16 000 range.
Also offered with no reserve from Italy is a well presented and largely original 1965 Fiat 1800B sedan that has been in an Australian private collection for the past six years. The 1800 model was introduced by Fiat in 1959 as Italy’s improving Post-war economy increased the demand for larger, more expensive cars and the 1800B introduced in 1961 saw the car’s 1800cc engine develop an increased output of 64kw.
