For Sale – 1956 2CV Truckette

No bondo on the car….just a few metal cracks and paint is original grey with spray can touch up.

The Truckette was maintained by Lon Price of Santa Cruz and runs well.  Will reach 55 mph and brakes well…Six volt system works well…

The history of the Truckette is that it was owned by a Hollywood vehicle rental company and featured in several movies.  One movie was a Playboy on video with Shannon Tweed, wife of Gene Simmons of band KISS, a video copy goes with the car. 

I have shown the car at the local annual Pacific Grove Little Car Show for past seven years and was voted “ most smiles per mile” trophy by event visitors one year.. (before the annual parade drive around Monterey Bay.)

I have a binder of documentation on the Truckette with photos and video of show drives and other events.  Many French props and books and car parts go with the Truckette including the wiper, hubcaps, the original chevrons, bulbs etc.  it has five new Firestone tires….did you know Firestone tires are $40.00 a tire ….much cheaper than Michelin..!

My wife and I are over 82 now and time to hand off our toys to younger folks now…..Potter 19 sailboat I have had new since ‘72, Bayliner Skagit power cruiser boat, both on trailers, ‘76 BMW motorcycle R100/sidecar rig, ‘56 4CV Renault, Volvo 1800S , Kabota tractor and many other items….so we are now down-sizing this year.

I have Truckette videos and photos of the car shows and drives around the Monterey Bay for anyone interested….(and parts and work records)….and also great props for car shows..

Price: $8,000 US.
