Eighty Years of Citroen in the U.K.


John Reynolds


In tracing the story of Citroën in the United Kingdom between 1920 and 1980, Eighty Years of Citroën in the United Kingdom reviews the history of Citroën Cars Ltd., which is the predecessor of the present trading company Citroën UK Ltd., and recalls the right-hand-drive vehicles built at the Slough Works between 1926 and 1966, and all those models subsequently imported from France between 1966 and 1980.

Pre-war, Post-war and even wartime production is fully catalogued and illustrated by over 250 archive press and publicity pictures together with contemporary advertising material, and also by a new series of specially commissioned full-colour photos showing some of the very best surviving historic cars. The complete span of right-hand-drive vehicles featured includes the conventional rear-wheel-drive cars of the Andre Citroën era 1919-1934, the Traction Avant of 1955-1975 as well as the Citroën-Maserati SM of 1970-1975 and the later GS/GSA, CX and BX models.
