A Citroën what?
A Citroën MAZU?
Well, this is my mum's AZU, put the 2 together and you get MAZU.
When you know that in Dutch Mum = Ma, then MAZU makes even more sense...
After some changes of mind the future owner of this car decided she'd really like a 2cv van. I was running this van at the time and it was considered suitable.
When found it didn't look too good but it was not that bad. The 435 engine and gearbox were replaced by a 1973 602 engine and gearbox. All lights were fixed, the brakes were rebuilt and it ran pretty fine.
It still needed some exterior work though. At first the idea was to make it a running restoration. But the future owner wanted a truly NEW 2cv. The requested specification was a bit altered, it would have to have disc brakes and a stronger engine as well. And it should look like a 50s 2cv van!
All the mechanicals were transferred over to a 1973 AKS P.O.
During the spring of 2001 the work is continued. After properly cleaning suspected areas with a high speed rotating wire brush, additional rust is found. So more cutting and repairing is called for.
Plans for this car have changed. My mum now has trouble driving cars without power steering, so i've decided to keep this car for myself and make something very special out of it.
The mechanicals for this car will come from another car. More info can be found here
