Truck Thursday: Three-axle Citroen CX pickup

I got slighlty bored with the Bay of E, so I started browsing Polish car auctions sites. No other specific reasons really, other than perhaps the cars are a bit different, cooler in a sense. Also, the mighty Dollar is damn strong, and I just happen someone who is familiar with shipping procedures. Just sayin’, but that’s neither here nor there. Anyway, this browsing is obviously going to lead to some amazing finds, such as this three-axles Citroen pickup.

This ’78 CX was obviously converted into a pickup truck, specifically to be used in filming and movie productions. It sports a 2.5L diesel and manual transmission, but unfortunately hasn’t ran in four years. The seller reassures that it ran well, when it did ran last. Right.

It’s over eighteen feet long and weights in at 4600lbs. No word on suspension details for the third axle, but c’mon, how complex could it really be? I would be a great base for a motor home. The auction starts at… less than $300!!

    Quite a few CX were modified into utilitarian vehicles… Go here for many examples: http://www.forum-auto.com/automobiles-mythiques-e… Including a four axle version and many build photos showing how those modifications were carried out.
    Make sure to scroll down for the good stuff!

    So, do shipping costs have to be included in the LeMons $500 limit? I think not.

    Nothing says "good idea" quite like taking an already stodgy suspension system, and adding a third axle to the equation!

    p.s. Where do I get one???

  4. Tanshanomi says:

    I am in favor of any car that has a platform in front of the grille designed for passengers to stand on while underway.

    Zero to Sixty in… Nope.

    Isn't that a '70s Dodge pickup parked across from it? This Citroen could inspire a whole book full of Polish jokes.

    I can guarantee you, you've have little hassle from the judges on just about anything imported from Poland, provided it was never sold in the States.

    Look up 'Tissier' and you'll see all kinds of wonderful six-wheeled Citroens!

    The dual rear axle model was used a heavy load courier model for transporting heavy loads fast.
