1922 Citroen 5CV Cloverleaf

André Citroën started business as a gear manufacturer and it was not until 1919 that he produced his first car.  The 5CV was introduced in 1922 with the Cloverleaf bodywork, an 856cc engine with a detachable cylinder head, quarter-elliptic springs all round and coil ignition.  Though somewhat slow and lacking good brakes, the Cloverleaf gained its reputation for being virtually indestructible.

Production continued until 1925, the year in which a journey around Australia was completed in a Citroën Cloverleaf.
