A special-edition model of the iconic Citroën 2CV, the Dolly was unveiled in March 1985 and originally limited to 3,000 examples. The immediate success of the practical yet charming 2CV led to a second release of 2,000 cars in October of that year, and a final batch in 1986, bringing total production to around 10,000. Powered by a 602 cc, air-cooled flat-twin engine coupled with a four-speed gearbox, the Dolly quickly became the people’s favorite with a cult following. The stylish French two-tone design was easily recognizable in towns and cities not only across the UK, but worldwide.

This example was sold new to a woman in Scotland who enjoyed the car locally and accrued limited miles over a 32-year period. In 2019, a prominent figure in the automotive and racing world purchased the car with the intent to transport his children to and from school. An introduction to the “old car scene” in a fun and unpretentious manner, this Dolly has been enjoyed not only by the consignor’s family but countless other people during its years in its current custodianship.

Displaying just over 19,000 miles at the time of cataloguing, this 2CV Dolly is being offered for sale once again. Moreover, the consignor plans to donate 100% of his sale proceeds to Ukraine Voices of Children to support families that have been affected by the war in Ukraine. The consignor remarked, “I hope our Dolly can help these families and bring them some comfort, a fine testament indeed to the joy it has brought our family over the years.”
