The Avant was also the first car to be factory fitted with radials. Michelin had a close association with Citroen.
That's half the story Karl, actually during the development of the Traction Avant Citroen went bankrrupt in 1934 due to the very high costs of its development & their biggest creditor was Michelin! So they were owned by Michelin from 1934 to 1976.
Under Michelin naturally Citroen was run as an extended R&D department so it was a testing bed for Radials & other new technologies which Michelin was working on at that time.
well, Adi Dubash had that combi, for a long long time and for sale.
Maybe, They were at one time stored at the Morvi's bunglow at KP, but then brought back to Mumbai and then finally after 6 years of trying, SOLD.

I seriously doubt the jag and lincoln being advertised for sale in autocar, Ive been a subscriber from day one, and have never seen the ads. Could you tell me which issue? The Jag doesnt seem to be a part of the collection anymore, and the Porsche was sold a long time back.
