Traction Cabriolets stir our interest.  They remain undervalued compared to other convertibles of that era and a comparative bargain in the Citroën community compared to ID and DS Cabrios,    If it sells in the estimated price range someone is probably going home with a very good deal.

Want a bit more flair?   Also for sale will be a 1936 Panhard Dynamic Coupe (estimated to go for 50.000 -70.000 €).
