This particular Citroën 2CV has the body of a 1956 2CV with rippled bonnet and suicide doors (model year 1957 with proper boot lid) but is built on a 1980 chassis with the advantage of safety features fitted such as disk brakes. While the 1956 model had a 425cc engine with 12 horsepower (hp), the 1980 had a 602cc engine with 29 hp. This car has a Burton (one of the largest supplier of 2CV parts) built engine bored out to 652cc with an output of 38-40 hp allowing the 1,300 lb car to easily keep pace with cars on the highway reaching a top speed exceeding 75 mph. The suspension on this car was also modified and lowered slightly to improve handling and stability thus alleviating some of the fun and charming but very tipsy behavior of the original. The body of the car was restored by an official Citroën garage in Milan, Italy and the mechanicals were done by 2CV and Burton specialist Officine Ricaboni of LODI.

Period 1950s features include (1) Marshall fog lights, (2) an original 1956 Monte Carlo Rallye competitor plate (a 2CV did compete in the Monte Carlo Rallye), (3) Quillery (French producer of auto accessories) F (France) rear badge, (4) Galco Gallet Swiss-made dashboard mount racing stopwatch, (5) 1956 vignette (road registration), (6) Air France plaid suitcases, and (7) 1956 Michelin road guide, Paris Match magazine, and Le Figaro newspaper. Custom features include (1) an all-leather interior installed when the car was in Milan, (2) dashboard with speedometer, gas gauge, windshield wiper control (circa 1963), (3) Jaeger tachometer (accessory circa 1960), (4) restored Quillery steering wheel (circa 1961), (5) bumpers with optional protective over-riders (circa 1962), (6) wheels painted in “Rouge Brillant” with whitewalls, and (7) rear replica Rallye Monte Carlo plaque. ​
