Hemmings Find Of The Day: 1966 Citroën 2CV Truckette
By Dan Strohl
If indeed there are only 150 Truckettes like this 1966 Citroën 2CV Truckette in the United States, then I should count myself lucky: This is the third that I’ve seen in the last month, though the only one that I’ve seen recently in the Hemmings.com classifieds. From the seller’s description:
The Truckette was originally designed to be a commercial version of Citroen’s immensely popular 2CV. Perfect for the streets of urban France (especially Paris) where parking is tight, commercial vehicles are taxed by their size and larger vehicles are restricted from entering specific areas. During the late Fifties and throughout the Sixties and Seventies, the Truckette was the vehicle of choice of most butchers, bakers and candlestick makers throughout France. The Truckette also caught on with small families as the Truckette could be fitted with an extra rear seat and side windows. Very few, if any, Truckettes were imported by Citroen and almost all of the USA Truckettes currently in the USA were imported by Citroen enthusiasts! The Citroen Concours of America notes that there are only between 100 and 150 in the United States now!
