At the time the FFI numbers were painted on the bumper or wing along with a Tricolour signifying military use, an example is pictured In later years the 7C travelled to North America for the annual world Citroen rally in New England, and in 2009, moved to Jersey in the Channel Islands, with the occasional trip to French rallies as well as local events and displays.
Overall the car is in very good original condition being well maintained over the years. The interior is original, as is the engine, the gearbox was exchanged in the early 1950’s and is good with no whine, or faults with gear changing or staying in gear. The floor pan is in excellent condition with no rust, on import in Jersey it passed the DVS vehicle check with no known faults, and has continued to be well maintained over the years.
The body work is original, and in very good solid condition, the paint work is nicely patinated, but again in overall good condition , there is a small amount of micro blistering to the rear wing. All of the instruments and switches are original, period indicators are fitted.
The interior has the original seats, and headlining, which has a small tear to the front, but could be easily repaired.
The original 7C engine is fitted, and has been regularly maintained, very recently, the brake hydraulics ,shoes, and front wheel bearings have been renewed, a new coil, points condenser have been fitted along with a new mechanical fuel pump and battery. It is set up ready to go for the forthcoming season.
