1972 Citroen Dyane 6 602 cc from UK and Ireland
Economy motoring from a bygone age, that has relevance today
Rust in the floor pan... well most panels really.
A distress purchase in my youth when I needed a group 1 insurance car in order to remain insured after a series of... ahem... shunts.
Bought for eighty quid with 10 months left on what must have been a dodgy MOT. Rotten floor / chassis, which rendered the car scrap at MOT time, but this car launched me onto a series of boxer engined Citroens.
What a laugh - beige body, red door and blue tailgate, so resprayed it myself in desert cam. Stencilled camels on the doors, and tricolours on the boot and bonnet in a faux Foreign Legion look, and had a barrel of laughs - these cars are legends - you can fix them with a knife and fork!! A ten milly ring spanner and a screwdriver is the complete tool kit - Citroen - bring them back please!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
