The CitroŽn Traction Avant (front drive) was built from 1934 until World War II and then until 1956. The first series was constructed in 1934 as a 7 CV with 1302 cm≥ and with 1628 cm≥. It had an automatic transmission and was not fully developed. CitroŽn is doing badly and the 7 CV was the rescuers in times of need. Special about it was next to the monocoque body, independent suspension and hydraulic brake, the installation of the transmission before and of the engine longitudinally behind the front axle. By loss of the cardan shaft, the car became lighter. The first in the series weighed as to the 900 kg.

The engine of the car shown is a four cylinder 1911 cm≥ and 43 kW (58 hp). In the case of the three-speed manual transmission only are synchronized the second and third gear. There was the car with short and long wheelbase, which enlarged the space opulently. 1952 the cockpit was reworked and a flasher with relay introduced, before one had to raise the semaphore arms. There was until 1952 the model with the spare wheel on the hatchback and the wipers above. Thereafter, with the bag model was created a larger trunk space. From the front you can see it on the wipers down on the hood. As special comfort can rotate the front window to the outside.
