From the seller on eBay:
“Beautiful Citroen 2cv Charleston, Black/Burgundy, 1985
Simply The Best. Paris built, 19800 miles from new.
A maroon/black Charleston just like this sold at Shannons Auctions in Sydney for $40,000 earlier this year. This one is as good but only half the price. The car is on its original chassis and has all its original bodywork, apart from one new front wing. The paintwork is fantastic and the interior is immaculate. It also has a new hood, diamond-check seat covers and headlights (which had minor corrosion on the reflectors). The car has spent most of its life in storage in the UK and has only done 19800 miles from new. There is service history from 2002, prior to which it was owned by a dealer who kept it for show. Since it arrived in Australia in April, I have spent around $3000 to tidy it up, give it a full service and fit new tyres. It is now in immaculate condition and the engine makes a lovely quiet purr. It is extremely rare to find a Citroen 2cv in such remarkable, original condition like this, complete with its original 1985 handbook, service booklet and wooden block. Inspection is welcome in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, or give me a call on 0411342194. You won’t find one better. The car comes complete with import approval, NSW Blue Slip and NSW registration until 28 April 2011. Oh yes, and it has black rubber mats and/or dark gray carpet in case you’re wondering.24 August 2010 at 9:39 pm #4062CVikingParticipant

Are you saying the photo you linked to is a photo of this car? And what are we looking for?25 August 2010 at 8:35 am #4082CVikingParticipant
Yes look on Ebay. It is always a worry when 2cv’s are sold with original chassis. This one is from 1985 but the claim is that the 2cv was kept inside most of the time.
Water is trapped underneath the useless rubber matts and slowly find its way to the inside of the chassis eating away. If I was to pay $ 20 odd kilo for a 2cv I would expect a new chassis.
