Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

Fea­tur­ing a rare orig­i­nal in­te­rior
