Citroen 2cv Charleston

After the death of André Citroën and the takeover of the company by tire manufacturer Michelin, the new management of the car manufacturer Citroën decided in 1935 to develop a small car suitable for the rugged French countryside: the TPV, or Toute Petite Voiture. Project leader and driving force Pierre-Jules Boulanger described the goal as "an umbrella on four wheels". Based on market research, it was decided that it should be a vehicle that could transport two farmers with 50 kilograms of potatoes or a barrel with 50 liters of wine. The story also goes that it had to offer the possibility to bring a sheep in the car. The car had to be so comfortable that eggs in a basket would not break if the car were to drive over a piece of plowed land. Other requirements were that the car especially economical, reliable, cheap and easy to operate: a farmers wife had to be able to drive it to the market. Also, the farmer, wearing his Sunday hat, had to fit in so that he could go to church by car. The appearance of the car was not considered important. Serial production of the 2CV began on July 11, 1949. In the beginning, it was mainly supplied to farmers (primary target group), care providers such as general practitioners and well-known French artists (free advertising). The French rural people were immediately enthusiastic, which increased the waiting time to three years. In 1952, the Netherlands was the first export country for the 2CV. However, in the beginning the car was sold poorly in the Netherlands, probably because of its appearance. The last 2CV was produced on July 27, 1990. Later versions, like elsewhere in Europe, became cult vehicles.

Opel Olympia

The Opel manufacturing company was started in 1862 as a bicycle manufacturer and became the biggest bicycle builder of Germany in a relatively short time because of the good design combined with the superb quality and a competitive pricing. Opel started with the production of cars already in 1899 and was one of the first car manufacturers in the world. Also with the cars they worked along the same principles: nice styling, good quality and competitive pricing. In 1929 Opel was taken over bij General Motors who at that time already was striving to produce cars worldwide. From a technical point of view, the model was a special car. It was one of the first production cars with a completely self-supporting body and a model with crash zones. Two models of the first series were released: the Cabrio-Limousine and the Limousine. Both models had a 1.3 liter four-cylinder engine that reached a top speed of 95 km/h. Production of the first series ran until 1940, during which time nearly a thousand were produced. During the Second World War Opel was forced to focus entirely on the production of war material. After the Second World War, it was very difficult to start up any production in Germany because there was a lack of everything, from money to metals. Opel production was slowly restarted. In 1947 the Opel Olympia was re-launched in its same pre-war form. The engine did get more power, namely 37 HP. Only about 3000 cars of this model were built. The Opel Olympia was the first Opel model to be produced on a large scale. Introduced in 1935, the Olympia was named after the Olympic Games to be held in Berlin a year later. The model became a great success despite the aftermath of the deep crisis of the 1930s.

Opel Kapitan

The Opel manufacturing company was founded in 1862 by Adam Opel, and was originally active as a bicycle manufacturer. Opel was so successful in this that they quickly became one of the largest bicycle factories in Germany. This was partly due to the styling in combination with the excellent quality and the competitive pricing. It was not until 1899 that the first Opel car was produced. In 1929 the company became an Aktiengesellschaft and was sold to the American General Motors group, a company that was founded in 1898 and was already active worldwide in car production in 1929. The Opel Kapitän was the top-class model of the Opel factories between 1939 and 1970. Opel Kapitän models are usually equipped with a six-cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 2.5 to 2.8 liters. The Opel Kapitän was the last model constructed by Opel before the Second World War and was presented to the world first at the Geneva Motor Show in 1939. It was also the first model to come off the production line after the Second World War in 1948. This Opel Kapitän was build in 1955 and it came to Netherlands in 2012.

Ford Mustang Cabrio

The Ford Mustang is one of the iconic models of the American car brand Ford. The Mustangs name comes from the American fighter plane Mustang P-51 and was coined by the man responsible at Ford for the styling of the first Ford Mustang: John Najjar. The first Mustang came off the production line on April 17, 1964. The Mustang was an immediate sales success, partly due to its attractive base price of only US $ 2368, - in 1964. Its sporty appearance was also greatly appreciated. The Mustang also sold relatively well in the Netherlands in the 1960s until the 1973 oil crisis caused sales of these types of cars worldwide to collapse. The Mustangs were assembled for the European markets from 1965 to 1967 in the Dutch Ford factory in Amsterdam. The Mustang model is still produced by Ford and is still a very popular car in America. The current Mustang model is an electric car. The Mustang has played an important role in countless TV movies. The most famous movie is probably the movie Bullit in which Steve McQueen plays the lead role together with a fastback version of the Mustang. This famous chase through the streets of San Francisco really put the Mustang on the map as a super sporty car!This Ford Mustang Cabriolet is one of the first model, the so-called 64½ model which was made from 1964 to 1967. This convertible was built in 1965 at the Ford factory in Dearborn, Michigan. It is factory equipped with a 289 cubic inches V8 engine with an automatic gearbox. According to the manufacturers specification, this 289 cubic inches (4.7 liter) 8 cylinder has an output of 200 hp, which was of course very respectable at the time. The torque of these V8 engines is also famous. In addition, they are known for being fairly trouble-free and easy to repair. This car is finished in Springtime Yellow with a black interior and a black hood. In this color, the Mustang is really a beauty to see, a real eye-catcher! The Mustang has been restored and is optically and technically in very good condition, both outside and in the interior, but also in the trunk and under the bonnet.
