DOWN ON THE FARM

Classic Sports Car - - Lost & Found -

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: mi­keel­lis@mail.com
