Demand for Citroën’s 2CV shows no sign of slowing down. Bradford specialist 2CV City has reported record levels of business as the deux chevaux’s homeland begins to buy back into car that it shunned in the ‘Eighties and ‘Nineties.

Owner Tony Shields told the BBC that the majority of shipments go back to France, which recently took 30 new chassis. 2CV City also caters for the likes of the Dyane and H Van, the latter enjoying a resurgence with mobile caterers.
