    I think that there is a guy in the Eastern Suburbs importing 2CVs from the UK. They have always had a recent paint job. There is always some details that aren't quite kosher.

    Firstly, the low kilometres refers to what is on the speedo, not the kilometres the car has travelled. The UK cars invariably had speedos in miles per hour, not kilometres. So, the speedo has been changed. Since they only display up to 99,999, it could have done anything. The fact that the carby has been overhauled belies the mileage.

    The grill is from a 2CV of the 70s, not 1988. The France 3 blue swirl decal on the side was only on the 1983 model (Americas Cup year). The chrome Citroen scroll came from ? There is something not quite right with the engine serial number plate. Its not in the position I would expect it to be. The rust free status may or may not be correct. A recent paint job covers the evidence.

    That all said, $9,500 is a good price for a 2CV. A good one normally goes for $12,500 to $13,500, so you have some leeway if there are problems. Everything is repairable on them, so even in the worst case, you will still have a 2CV, even if you have to throw some money at it. The car won't depreciate.

    If you like the car from the photos, take a punt and buy it. They aren't making any more of them and you can keep it going forever. You can even ditch the petrol engine and convert to electric if that turns you on.

    Looks like this car here http://www.flickr.com/photos/frontdrive34/3860892791 which seemed to live in Bronte for quite a while but has been gone for many months.
