  7. How much is required for deposit ?
    A deposit will show to me your seriousness, sincerity and commitment to purchase. It will qualify you as a serious client committed to buying.
    The deposit will be about 40% of the price of the 2CV, more if you ordered options, which have to be paid before to be conducted.
  8. There are some GB "righties" 2CV in the US. Are your 2CV Left Hand Drive or Right Hand Drive ?
    They are Left Hand Drive as they come from France.
  9. How do you guarantee the legality of your 2CVs when attempting to license them in the USA ?
    My 2CVs are not new cars but are second hand cars with new components. Although 100% of the parts could be replaced for new ones, thus producing a new 2CV, they are still not considered new but only rebuilded with modern components from 2CV legally licensable in the USA. All papers, stamps, plates and proof of ownership are showing it clearly enough to avoid any problem when I claim the 2CV from the customs and go with my client to the Car registery office.
  10. I realise that your sales do not focus on 2CV derivatives, however, would you be willing to sell a delightfully ugly AMI to a US customer if one is available ?
    You are right, my sales do not focus on 2CV derivatives. However, I can sell an AMI to a US customer if one is available : it is quite like a 2CV and the export rules are the same as it is the same chassis and engine as a 2CV.
  11. Is a Charleston (or a France3) just a paint color-scheme that can be applied to any 2CV or is it the car that would be considered Deluxe ?
    Charleston and France 3 are both 2CV6, either Club or Spécial version, each painted with its own color scheme.
    They are quite not Deluxe. I say "quite" because can we really consider an interior light, a fabric top opening from the inside instead of from the outside and front separated seats instead of the bench type as making the difference between Normal and Deluxe ?
    Mainly when you know that the plug for the light is always there on the electrical wiring or build-in bolts are always there too for screwing the little device needed to open the top from the inside instead of from the outside or that you can swap a bench type seat with separated seats ?
    Just buy the small light, the small top device and the separated seats, plug the light to its connector, screw the top device inside the body, slide the seats in position and, voila!, here you are, your Normal 2CV is a Deluxe !?
    Anyway, I allways add at least an interior light and a fabric top opening from the inside, just because it is more handy.
  12. Do you put a French F sticker on the car ?
    Yes, it is something I must do regarding the US Custom rules (althought if I did not I suppose no policeman would put me in jail or even would notice the sticker is missing...).
