Classic Cars Tehran (2)

We discovered this aged, battered, but ultimately "beautiful" example of the iconic 2CV on a backstreet somewhere near the famous Tehran Bazaar, where it was still being used as a workhorse (or two workhorses) fetching and delivering goods.



Not sure about the colour scheme though.

According to Wikipedia, in Iran the Citroen 2CV was called the Jian. The cars were originally manufactured in Iran in a joint venture between Citroen and Iran National.


Some great pictures of American classics taken by my friend Will Yong here

Great find Chris. While I'm a huge fan of the Citroen 2CV, it's the Reanult Fuego that really does it for me. Seen any not up on blocks down there?
