1911 Dedion Bouton CS2

Chassis number:  CS2 No2

Registration number: DEZ1911

A stunning edwardian.  This car was sold to its first owner in 1911 for the sum of 8,000 Gold Francs. In 1939 the car was taken to pieces and hidden in a dung heap on a farm to prevent it being confiscated by the Germans to be melted down for its metal.  In 1955 when the proprietor of the Citroen garage where it had been stored died, it was left to the foreman of the garage who put it back together and was used in local fairs and festivities.

In 2002 having run out of money, he advertised the car and it was bought by Mr Holderer who sent it to the local body builders Mercasier de Fleach with the plans from the Amical Dedion to build a new correct body. This car has spent its whole life in the Limousin region of France until being purchased by the current octogenarian onwer who is now ready to part with it.

In simply stunning condition the car starts readily & drives beautifully.  The marron paintwork is in very fine condition with beautiful black & cream accents.  The car is needless to say festooned in Brass wherever one looks.  The seats are brand new in black & a new mohair tonneau & hood completes the ensemble.  An original eliot speedometer is fitted to the dash board.

The car is easy to drive & delightful to able down back lanes & B roads in.   Huge money has been spent to put it into its current conditin.  A French Carte Gris accompanies the car.
