that's how it is with me too: I am always 2$ short of free shipping! so of course I always find something else I "need" to get it, and then that item is basically free just like you say.

 

I would like to know where to get it for 25$ shipped...that's the kind of price I have been waiting for.

That's what I was waiting for, too. I couldn't believe that I'd won the auction when I checked. Probably a one-time thing, but it is just another example of the wondrous deals to be had on eBay if one persists and is vigilant.

And here we are, one year to the day, and I've finally got this kit. I'm still waiting for build-ups of this kit. I've only seen a couple so far.

I just got that kit; it's a great one. I keep thinking it would make a really unique tow vehicle for a Revell midget.

Very cool idea, I think you should go with that ;)

I would respectfully disagree. Unique tow vehicle, yes - but the amount of power available from the engine does not make it a good tow vehicle. All other things aside, The 2CV tended to have a "flower power, environmentalist, hippie" kind of stigma attached to it. I guess it would be less so with the van variety, but it would still be severely underpowered for towing even a midget. Not to mention being the laughing stock of the pits. Actually, the only way you could associate a 2CV with racing without loosing face is by actually racing it.

Oh, yeah - right.  This tread was supposed to be about the van. Guess I goofed out on that. sorry

I would respectfully disagree.

Ahh,  the joys of building plastic models, and being able to do what may not work in real life ;)

No problem!  Just take that little CV van, pop a Ferrari V12 in the back and we're good to go!

 

A sorta funny aside.  I have a 1932 Ford Vicky that I built on top of a VW chassis as if it was a fiberglass kit car. At one show the head judge told me that although the car was nicely built, it would never win an award because it wasn't feasible!

 

Same contest, the winner in my class was a '39 Ford with a Ferrari V12 in it!

Neat little van; I wonder if any ever got imported to the U.S.?

 

I might go seek one of these out when the mood strikes and the money allows.

Charlie I don't think they ever sold them in the US, but there are enough of them here!  There was a company in South Jersey that was importing CVs the last time I looked at eBay Motors.

I've just bought one of these kits. We have hundreds of 2cv's here in the UK, someone nearby has put a 1600cc beetle engine in the front, but he's also uprated the brakes thank god!

Also a near neighbour who owns Racelogic(the inventors and suppliers of electronic paddle shifting for race and sportscars) races one of these on a regular basis and recently came close the winning their own version of the Le Mans 24 hours but for 2cv's....

I hope to start my 2cv van soon, but am tied up building Manx & Bugle beach buggies at present ( Under Glass - Manx 4X4)

Ah the quandary!   Cars in Europe and Australia that nobody gives a hoot about there, but I'd love to have one in the USA!  I'd love to have a CV,  an old Mini or an Aussie Valiant for fun. Rare here in US, and would be costly to ship here!

I was in Argentina in 2012 and I saw these little vehicles EVERYWHERE! I've spent the last half an hour going through my photos and I can't believe I don't have one. Apparently, the Argentine small business owners love them though.

They were built there from 1960 until 1980' they had what they badged as a 3CV, which unlike 2CV,s built elsewhere, had a hatchback design

I think I'm going to put my Fourgonette up for trade, I just need to check that all the parts are there. Anybody wants one keep an eye on the Trading section tomorrow.
