Pete Spar­row has been work­ing on 2CVs for 30 years, restor­ing, mod­i­fy­ing and up­grad­ing them. ‘Own­ers are in­creas­ingly us­ing th­ese cars for longdis­tance drives,’ he says. ‘ They want to im­prove re­li­a­bil­ity and us­abil­ity so sub­tle engine mods are pop­u­lar. The most com­mon up­grades are the fit­ment of elec­tronic ig­ni­tion, spring and damper changes, plus re­place­ment chas­sis. ‘Engine ca­pac­ity in­creases are pop­u­lar too. We of­fer 650cc, 720cc and 760cc pack­ages.’
