The car is in very good condition. Only problems are the left rear door from which the door bottom has rusted away, and some very thin front wings. The car is complete to the last detail, which is remarkable after 65 years.

This is one of the oldest long wheelbase Traction Avant survivors. Sofar only one older car has been found (also featured on these pages). This car is very special because it's very original. Most cars undergo modifications during a 65 year lifespan, but this car has survived remarkably unscarred.
