1972 Citroen Ami 8 Estate

A thoroughly restored Ami 8 with just 3 owners from new.

In long-term ownership with its second owner, a Citroen mechanic, our Ami shows 28,600 miles on the clock which is believed to be genuine but cannot be proved. Restored in 2020 by its current owner the process was a thorough one – mechanically a new 123 electronic ignition has been fitted, with a new resin dry coil and a new battery. The cylinders, pistons and piston rings have been replaced, the engine mounts and gearbox mount are new, the valves have been cleaned and checked. The engine breather has had all the internal rubbers replaced. A new oil pressure switch fitted, new petrol pump, new dump tubes, new oil, filter, spark plugs, air filter and timing and tappet gaps set. The clutch and back-plate bearing are all new. The brakes have new rear cylinders and rear shoes, new front discs and pads, handbrake pads and new brake fluid. The suspension has had the knife edges dismantled, cleaned and greased and canisters oiled with new dampers all-round. The shell has been welded in places with all welds dressed and sealed. New floors and sills have been fitted, the underside has been under-sealed and oil injected into the sills and other cavities to future-proof the car. The chassis was excellent and un-welded and has now been internally oiled. Bodily the car has been completely re-painted and the front quarter window insets have been converted to allow sliding windows, with wind-down main windows. New window channeling, LED fog lights and reversing light and a new petrol cap. New fuel pipes are for unleaded with a new fuel filter. The exhaust system is new. New old-stock headlamps and new Toyo tyres all-round.
