Specific Item Information: This N scale replica of this classic French cult car is decorated in the same bright green with black roof and chassis as its larger counterpart. Registered E671 PUA and manufactured in 1987, our little Citroën 2CV6 Speciale BAMBOO features lots of chrome to window surrounds, headlights, door handles and a metallic strip along the sides of the body. A final added touch sees BAMBOO graphics printed in white out of green on the side doors and rear offside. A real fun car, with lots of attitude!
Model Information: Factory painted and assembled, the Oxford Diecast line of metal vehicle models are 1:148 (British) N-Scale.
Prototype History:
The Citroën 2CV (French: pronounce "deux chevaux" i.e. "two fiscal horsepower", often nicknamed Deuche or Deudeuche) is an air-cooled front-engine, front-wheel-drive economy car, manufactured by Citroën for model years 1948–1990.

Conceived by Citroën before WWII as TPV ("Très Petit Véhicule", very small vehicle) to help motorise the large number of farmers still using horses and carts, the 2CV was only industrialised after the war and introduced at the 1948 Paris Mondial de l'Automobile. It has a combination of innovative engineering and utilitarian, straightforward metal bodywork — initially corrugated for added strength without added weight. The 2CV featured low cost, simplicity of overall maintenance, an easily serviced air-cooled engine (originally offering 9 hp), low fuel consumption, and an extremely long-travel suspension offering a soft ride and light off-road capability. The fixed-profile convertible bodywork featured a full-width, canvas, roll-back sunroof, which accommodated oversized loads and until 1955 reached almost to the car's rear bumper.

More than 3.8 million 2CVs were produced, along with over 1.2 million small 2CV-based delivery vans known as fourgonnettes. Citroën ultimately offered several mechanically identical variants including the Ami (over 1.8 million), the Dyane (over 1.4 million), the Acadiane (over 250,000) and the Mehari (over 140,000). In total, Citroën manufactured almost 9 million 2CVs and variants.
