L’entretien de ce véhicule a été fait régulièrement, la voiture est en bon état d’usage, et en dehors de la jauge à carburant et du compteur kilométrique, quelquefois récalcitrant, tout fonctionne correctement. L’an dernier nous avons obtenu le record mondial pour une Citroën, en vendant un des 3 cabriolets 15/6. Il est très difficile de trouver un équivalent et cette belle voiture est une très belle opportunité pour le vrai amateur de Citroën désirant acquérir une pièce unique et remarquable. Unlike some 15/6 Cabriolet made most recently on the basis of sedans in the 50s, this copy was made from one of the 1st Citroën Traction 15/6 1939 sedan with an G engine (turn left as so the first 2000 15/6 delivered by the Citroën factory from late 1938 and directly after the war). As evidenced by the album of photos taken throughout the completion of this magnificent vehicle, the work was spread over two years, from 1977 to late 1979, on behalf of Mr. Henri Dounot, which provided the sedan car from 1939 in perfect condition; it is good to note that perhaps it would carry no more of
this "type of sacrifice" at present. The body work was done by Chartrain (Levallois). The finishes, preparations and cellulose paints midnight blue, were performed by renowned vehicles restaurateur André Lecoq. The upholstery, exceptional quality, was made by Antoine. Details were particularly carefully, especially the finishes at any point within the Citroën spirit wanted then infuse this Queen of the Road, designed by the end of 1938, small bumper "mustache" and not big bumpers ribbed dressing 15/6 of the 50s, not chrome grille and Citroën chevrons attached to the back of it, no additives headlights added or other unnecessary accessories. This is also precisely why the historian Olivier de Serres cited this superb achievement in the first editions of his book "The Great Book of Traction Avant" (see page 171 of the March issue 1987), with the words: "This is the exact look of convertibles 15 of 1939, with G engine, painted grille, pilot wheels and minimal accessories." After little used for several years, until 1989, Mr. Dounot was transferred to our collectionnor, who therefore has it since early August 1989, almost 27 years now. He and his wife have many
used the following 15 years, trips to clubs (ICCR Clermont-Ferrand, ICCR Chevetogne, rallies special body Citroën ...), or just for fun, not hesitating to cross several times the different passes of the French or Swiss Alps. The maintenance of this vehicle was normally done, the car is in good working condition, and outside the fuel gauge and odometer, sometimes lazy, everything works fine. Last year we got the world record for a Citroën, selling one of the three convertibles 15/6. It is very difficult to find an equivalent and this beautiful car is a great opportunity for the true lover of Citroën wishing to acquire a unique and remarkable piece.
