Dinky Toys 24T; Citroen 2CV
One of the cars on the website where I actually owned the 1:1 version. I had it from about 1983 through to 1986 when my wife passed her test and demanded something a bit more normal. I had a 1979 2CV6 Club, which had the cloth seats, the square lights (Dollys had round ones) and a fold-back rather than roll back front on the roof. Sort of a posher version, mine was pale jade green with matching striped seats.
Manufactured between 1948 and 1990, more than 3.8 million 2CVs were produced. The car spawned many variants, notably these include the 2CV-based delivery vans known as fourgonnettes, the Ami, the Dyane, the Acadiane, and the Mehari. In total, CitroŽn manufactured 9 million 2CVs and variants.[
The Dinky was made from 1952 to 1959, it is modelled on the 1951 model year Citroen car. It has now been incorporated into the modern Atlas Editions Dinky toys range as produced by Norev.
