Heller Citroen 2CV
Posted by PatrickW on Saturday, June 24, 2017 4:01 PM

Built in France before WW2 exported all over including thousands into the UK. Unique suspension system years before anyone else, drive anywhere, originally used on French Farms and vineyards to cover rough ground without breaking an egg!

Corrugated bodywork for strength in such thin steel, two cylinder air cooled engine driving the front wheels, the first manufacturer to have all the works under the bonnet with no transmission tunnel to get in the way, flat floor perfect for space, for passengers and carrying loads, with removable canvas seats and full length canvas sun roof.

This one of Heller's cv's in 1/43.

All I know is that seeing this WIP I decided to do some research on those cars and what a fascinating bit of history that was. They were way ahead of the times in some areas of their design 

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

NO! They haven't told me about this the dirty tricksters. I'll stop using them and Fotki have already squeezed me for money so I'll stop altogether!

01/07 Opted for the $2.49 per month, but it won't pass me to paypal to pay for it! Great photobucket site-Not!

I've got a far better deal with Fotki, they actually speak to you! PB still don't answer.
