Partial and full restoration of a Citroën 2CV

There were an incredible number of 2CVs produced, but not every “tin snail” has remained in the same good condition.

For example, there are those famous “barn discoveries“. That are often 2CVs that have been tucked away somewhere and then forgotten. These finds have become very rare in Belgium, but they still do occur in other countries. In any event, because they have been undisturbed for decades, it is often difficult to get these original cars to start again.

And, of course, there are all sorts of enthusiasts who have meticulously maintained their 2CV, but the weather conditions in our country have still got the better of the car…

Do you own a Citroën 2CV that needs to be taken in hand properly, either partially (for example the engine, gearbox, bodywork, chassis, etc.) or in full? Then you’ve come to the right place at the 2CV Mehari Factory.

But even if you don’t own a Citroën 2CV yourself, there are still variuos ways of enjoying this classic: you could hire a Citroën 2CV or buy a Citroën 2CV.

Partial restoration of a Citroën 2CV

At the 2CV Mehari Factory, it is possible to restore your car to its original condition, in stages.

For example, we might decide together with you to start by dealing with the engine and gearbox so that the car drives well and reliably again. A few months later you can come back in again and we’ll renew the interior, which has probably seen better days after 30 years.

Working like this enables you to enjoy your 2CV during the summer and then make improvements to it during the winter.

Another option, of course, is that you may want to restore the car yourself, but have the rolling parts prepared by us. We can do this for you and overhaul and replace parts where necessary. That way you can have a solid foundation. So there are plenty of options!

We work like this:

You make an appointment with us and come along with your car. We look at the 2CV with you and listen to what you want to be done. Then we look at the car with a critical eye and tell you what we would recommend for it.

Next, we come up with a plan of approach together, taking account of your budget and the timing involved.

So all work is carried out in full consultation with you and in accordance with your wishes.

Total restoration of a Citroën 2CV

Do you own your dream car, but at the moment it’s still just an “ugly duckling“?

The 2CV Mehari Factory can totally restore your 2CV to its former glory, in line with your requirements.

When we take on a total restoration project for a 2CV, we always take your budget into account.

That applies to everything: the mechanical side, electrics and bodywork (welding and painting)

This is how we work:

You make an appointment with us and come along with your car.

We look at the car together and listen to your requirements. We will also advise you about what we think should be done to restore your car back to peak condition.

Based on your wishes, we produce an indicative price quote for the work you want.

Once you have approved our price quote, we make a restoration agreement covering all of the work, budgets and arrangements.

While carrying out the work, we take lots of photos of your car and give them to you afterwards. And if you’d like to come and take a look while the work is going on, that’s no problem! Just let us know beforehand so that we can present your car to you in the best conditions.
