Osenat Fontainebleau Auction Report – July 2023

Eight Citroëns crossed the auction block on July 10 at Osenat Fontainebleau. The results indicate some interesting trends. Overall prices seem to be down from previous years. An exception was a Traction Avant 15-6 (6 cylinder model) that sold in the same range as two SMs.

A rare M35 was a bargain at 41.400 EUR (though only a serious collector would want it with a single rotor Wankel engine). A CX Gti Turbo 2, granted with over 200,000 kms, sold for a mere 10,200 EUR. And for 2CV enthusiasts wanting a convertible — a German Hoffmann conversion sold for 18,600 EUR.

Serial number: 705903 Engine: PR0057
Est: 25,000 – 30,000 EUR

Very good original condition. Bodywork is in good condition, with some old paintwork. Interior is original and very well preserved. The mechanics had been completely overhauled by the Chauvet workshop between 2006 and 2009, during which time the car was converted to 12v and a power steering system was installed.

Apparently in beautiful condition, in an unusual shade of grey. Interior slightly modified with new, softer seats, still upholstered in grey mohair velour but with no visible seams, and a carpet lined with Dunlopillo padding, (like the DS). Has been in the owner’s possession for 57 years!



1982 2CV6 Hoffmann Cabriolet
Lot 37
Est: 10,000 – 15,000 EUR
Sold for: 18,600 EUR

Was converted by the current owner in the 1980s and is in excellent condition. A former coachbuilder, he carried out the operation himself. As the conversion was never registered with modification noted, the car still has the 4-seat registration of a traditional 2CV.



1968 Dyane 6
Lot 38
VIN: 561 078
Est: 5,000 – 8,000 EUR
Sold for: 4,800 EUR

Delivered new in Spain in 1970, where it spent almost its entire life. The bodywork and interior were refurbished in 2019. The current owner acquired it in 2020 and has continued with regular maintenance though noted that the mechanics need to be overhauled, due to sealing problems.



1971 SM
Lot 49
VIN: 00SB5862
Est: 25,000 – 30,000 EUR
Sold for: 30,000 EUR

Apparently in fine overall condition. Originally in tropical blue, the car was repainted some twenty years ago in a different shade of blue, and the paintwork is still in fine condition. The interior has beautiful patina. Equipped with rare resin rims

Est: 25,000 – 30,000 EUR

Leased by a Citroën tester from the current owner, a Citroën dealer. At the end of his contract, the tester bought the car back from Citroën. After having used it a little, it was taken back by the dealer. The current owner has kept it ever since for his own personal use. In very good condition, the mechanics have been well maintained and are in perfect working order.

Est: 10,000 – 15,000 EUR – offered with no reserve.
