1922 Citroën 5-CV Torpedo Cabriolet

Item Details

A 1922 Citroën 5-CV Torpedo Cabriolet in the original yellow paint. Manufacturer’s serial no. 20561. A collectible roadster designed and made in France during pre-depression years with styling at the height of fashion for its day. The vehicle features a two-passenger coupe body style with a convertible top, luggage and cargo carrying capabilities and all original parts shown. Due to age and origin of the vehicle, mileage was not able to be determined nor is a VIN applicable. Included are several diagrams, cross-sections, pamphlets and spec sheets gathered and passed along over the years by previous owners. Provenance is stated as purchased from the Paris Museum by a prominent Cincinnati family during a tenure in the mid-1960s; it was later brought to Ohio, where it has remained since. Lineage can be traced back to two additional owners after that beginning with a purchase in the early 1970s, and then by inheritance through to present day.
