Citroën Traction Avant Cabriolet 1937 (closed top)

The Citroën Traction Avant was an automobile produced by the French manufacturer Citroën and was quite a revolution.

About 760,000 units were manufactured from 1934 to 1957.

The Traction Avant was the first front wheel drive (= ‘traction avant’ in French) car in large scale production. Cord had built front wheel drive vehicles a few years earlier in limited quantities at high prices.

In addition to the 4-door body, the car was also produced as a 2-door coupé with a rumble seat (strapontins), as a convertible (cabriolet, cabrio) and as an extended length model, the ‘Familiale’ with three rows of seats.
