Auction Block: 1974 Citroën 2CV 4×4 Special By Jack Hanon

Originally known as the “Paris-Agadir,” the “Rallye de l’Atlas” (or “Atlas Rally”) is a grueling off-road event spanning over 1,800 miles of unforgiving Moroccan terrain along the North African country’s southwestern coastline. Traversing the hostile environment required an immensely rugged and capable vehicle, so when French racer, Jack Hanon decided to try his luck in the immensely taxing six-day race event, he opted to build out his own purpose-built off-roader.

Starting with a Citroën 2CV Sahara—the world’s first dual-engined 4×4 vehicle, of which only 694 were built—Hanon lopped the French car in half and mated together two 2CV frames. Good for a collective 130hp, the 2CV’s front and rear GSA flat-four mills received bespoke tubular engine cradles, while lifted, long-travel independent suspension affords the four-wheeler a full foot of ground clearance. Born out of more than 3,000 hours of labor, the car also sports a gutted, race-ready interior, complete with race seats, roll-cage, and rally instrumentation. In 2014, the car underwent a full restoration, returning it to its 1985 rally-spec. Now, this incredibly unique custom 1974 Citroën 2CV 4×4 Special By Jack Hanon is headed to the auction block at Bonham’s upcoming MPH December Auction where it’s expected to fetch between $20,000 and $33,000.

Purchase: $20,000+
