2CV and Related Books.

(Reviews and Bookstore)

 The reviews of the books given below are my personal opinions, although I hope you will find them valid. If you have any comments, on books listed here, or others which may be of interest, I'd love to hear from you.

 For further information about the book, or if you wish to purchase the book, follow the "more information" link below the title to one of the Amazon online bookshops. Wherever you live, you can purchase books from Amazon.com in the USA, and Amazon.co.uk in Europe, I have included links to both because it will be quickest to order from the location nearest to you if the book you want is available there.

Prices given are intended as a rough guide (the recommended price, advertised price, or the price I paid for mine). Currencies vary, and different retailers may set different prices.

I have also included some non - 2cv books, namely some on Microcars, which I find particularly interesting.


Citroen 2cv Restoration

Nigel Thorley /Paperback / Published 1996
ISBN 1873098405
$15.96
8.99

       2cv restoration

This book follows the restoration of a 1986 2CV6 Dolly, as "serialised" in Car Mechanics magazine over a number of months. Although the work carried out was specific to the needs of the car shown, it could be applied to any 2cv restoration or repair. Topics covered include fitting a new chassis, sheet metal repairs, interior renovation, engine servicing, and electronic ignition, all illustrated with full colour photographs. Despite a few technical inaccuracies, mainly throught the restoration team not being 2cv specialists, the book should povide a useful starting point for anyone considering such a restoration project.

A 170 page black and white softback book containing a collection of facsimile roadtests, reports from the motoring press and magazine articles about the 2cv. The book contains articles from the early years, including the car's debut in 1948 and roadtesting the Slough 2CV,  through to the car's re-introduction to the UK in the early 1970s, and even a number of  articles written in the 1990s, following the end of production. A useful source book packed with historical information, and highly recommended

Citroen 2cv: The Family Album

Andrea Sparrow, David Sparrow / Hardcover / Published 1993
ISBN 1874105138
$19.95
12.34

As the title suggests, this book is an "album", full of high quality colour pictures of the 2CV and derivatives. Although more artistic than technical, this is quite an informative book, and one worth browsing through. Quite expensive, but a useful part of my collection.
