Citroen Traction Avant 1950

General description : Nostalgia Classic Cars has the pleasure to offer you one of the most revolutionary and influential cars of the 20th century, a 1950 Citroën Traction Avant. This charming French sedan comes in a refreshing dark blue colorway, thus breaking the established black-or-white TA cliché. What makes its color stand out even more is beautifully restored chromework, with a protruding art deco hood ornament as the piеce de resistance. The interior features complementary grey cloth seats, panels, and carpeting, while the engine has covered just 58.302 kilometers.

Built from 1934 to 1957 in several different variants, Citroën Traction Avant was a pioneer in three important automotive milestones. It was the first mass produced car driven by front wheels, with four-wheel independent suspension, and most importantly, it had unibody construction. These three features were a huge breakthrough in the mid-thirties, making this Citroën a true revolutionary, and the most advanced car of its era. However, those were no novel improvements, as they had a great impact on the future of the automobile.

Despite it's age and pre-war looks, Citroën Traction Avant is a remarkably reliable car. Today, its best virtue is that it can be a beloved garage queen, but also a comfortable daily driven classic. This Citroën is iconic in many ways, and a rare find in such a beautiful color and condition, so book your visit to our showroom fast!


1950 Citroen Traction Avant is listed for sale on ClassicDigest in Dubai by Nostalgia Classic Cars for $49000.

About Citroen
French industrialist André Citroën had been building arms for the French army during WWI by the end of the war he was left with great industrial facilities but no product for the post war market.

In 1919 he founded Citroen that became the first mass-production car company outside the USA[3] and a pioneer of the modern marketing as well as factory backed services network. Mind you, even Eiffel Tower served as a billboard for Citroën from 1925 to 1934 -Mon Dieu, monsier!

Soon Citroën earned a reputation for innovation and revolutionary engineering. Staying true to their slogan "Créative Technologie" Citroën has many "firsts" under their belt:

Europe’s first all-steel-bodied car, the B10 In 1934.

The world's first mass-produced front-wheel drive car,Traction Avant, (also one of the first cars to feature a monocoque-type body)

The world's first hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system, introduced with the revolutionary Citroën DS / ID models in 1955, as well as the first production car with disc brakes.

Swiveling headlights in 1967, and finally variable assist power steering in 1970

With Citroën purchasing Maserati in 1968 a door opened for a high speed GT-model that would compete with Ferrari, Aston Martin et. al, when introduced Citroen SM was the world's fastest fwd-car.
