I bought this on ebay last week, an interesting bit of advertising!

Here's the advert to go with it! Well, the first one anyway.



Looks like there was an English style advert too but for the G Special.

apparently Dunlop took Citroen to court around the time they had just bought out the Denovo ( run flat tyre ),
saying citroens could not steer safely after a blow out at 60mph, as that is what citroen originally advertised,

citroen then prooved they could at 80mph, Dunlop went away with there tail between there legs

Cheers Vince. It's coming along slowly, realised that there's still some more welding to do for the MoT over the weekend but I'm working on the mechanical bits now as the metal work is getting a bit samey!
