DOWN ON THE FARM
We often hear of pre-war French cars that have been altered for agricultural use, and one has just reappeared in a British barn. After WW1, Citroën started exporting cars to the United Kingdom, and Mike Ellis from Petersfield has a 1924 Citroën B2 – one of 89,000 made between 1921 and 1927.
Post-war, the rear bodywork was removed and the chassis shortened to make a tractor. It was bought by an owner in Fareham, who kept it under cover for 15 years before selling it, a year ago, to Ellis. Sadly, he now has too many projects, so plans to sell it on, complete with a spare chassis. E-mail: email@example.com
