Default 1954 Traction Avant Light 15

Am thinking of selling my Traction Avant this year. I've had it for about 4 years and enjoyed it but I only drove it about 5 times last year and I have my eye on another car to purchase later this year.

Its not perfect but its in good condition and the previous owner spend serious money on this car ($19k). I've rebuilt the front suspension, re-sealed the gearbox, replaced the front carpet etc.

I'm not desperate to sell it, so if I find I can't get a reasonable price I'll probably keep it.

Here is a photo of the car in 1973.

Yes its quite a cool car. I like it, but cars need to be driven and since I didn't drive it so much last year if I an get a decent price for it probably makes sense to find it a new owner.

It will probably take me a bit of time to do a few tidy up jobs before I advertise it, so if the storage gods look kindly on you, it might still be around.

Traction will go up on carsales later this month when I get back from the USA. Thought those on TK may be interested in some pictures I took for the ad.

Hi Bryce, that car is in quite stunning condition - certainly one of the best Tractions I have ever seen. It reminds me a little of a Mercedes 170, but I am quite sure that it would be a much better car.

Regarding the photos - just a little observation. You have obviously just washed the car, but the water on the concrete looks a bit off putting. I would probably re-take the outdoor photos without those water stains. I know it's stupid on my part..........Regards Styria

Beautiful car Bryce, love the colour.
Please post the link when you do advertise it.

I have to agree with Styria,
A grassy setting is always best for great photos of a car.
Its calming, and makes the car "pop" in the pics.

Fair point, for now I will probably crop out some of the background so the car is the main focus and then take some more photos when I get a chance. I want to get the car online before I will have a chance to take better photos.

That is absolutely fantastic. Just clears the deck and makes everything far more manageable. Regards Styria
