Cute Kit: ’66 Citroen 2CV Aero Hoffman
Do you remember when some enterprising savvy business person designed a Rolls-Royce grill for the front of a VW Beetle? Or perhaps a Meyers Manx is a better comparison. Well this is something like a Manx only by a German on a French car. In 1988 Wolfgang Hoffmann developed the design of a cute convertible body for the faithful and plentiful 2CV. Only a few were actually built by Hoffman; maybe 250. All of the others out there were home-built. The kit contains a fiberglass body with steel frame, two side windows, soft-top, trunk lid and all necessary screws, bolts, hinges etc. The Aero Hoffman Register (insert smiley face), says that there are about 1,200 registered, mostly in Europe. By the way, Hoffman built a few other bodies for the 2CV: a limo, pickup and van. We have no idea if $8,000 is too much for one of these, but it would make a neat summer cruiser for a fraction of what a Fiat Jolly would cost. Click here for the listing.
