Model 2CV 12cm
The 2CV is one of the most famous French cars ever produced and has a huge fanbase of classic car enthusiasts worldwide. Built to be robust enough to be used by the farmers of France it spread to towns and cities all over the globe. Still in use in Madagascar, particularly on the streets of the capital Antananarivo as a taxi it is a great way to get around this hilly city.
The crafts people I work with in Madagascar produce lovely models of these charismatic cars and I am proud to sell them on this site. Each one is crafted from recycled materials by tinsmiths in the villages around the Madagascan capital Antananarivo. The parts are cut without use of a template before being soldered together, making each car completely unique. For this reason I have photographed each separately and put them on as individual listings.
Doors and boot open.
Soft drink or Beer can decoration on the roof
Made completely of recycled metal
Ideal for office, home, garage, café
Lovely gift for Birthdays, Christmas or Fathers Day
I have personally met the people who make the cars and and pay a fair price for the crafts they produce. Information booklet included with each car.
