There’s something about our vintage Citroens… whether it’s the traditional carriage shape or the shiny polished brass, you’re sure to make an impact and get great photos. As with all our vintage cars, Harriet has been restored by us, so you can be sure she’ll look her best on your special day.
What Makes Harriet Special?
Spacious interior for up to 3 adults
Traditional white wedding car
Great as a solo car or in a package
Harriet is a Citroen Deluxe Saloon and was built at Citroen’s factory in Slough, (then Buckinghamshire) England in 1928.
Harriet was originally a London car being moved in the 1980’s to Suffolk for restoration, then down to Gloucestershire some years later – the restoration having been abandoned by this time.
When we purchased the vehicle for spares in January 2008 we decided it was too good to break up so we pushed on with the restoration originally started some 25 years earlier.
Our Citroens are the rare British equivalent to the French version. However unlike the French motor cars, the British built vehicles were fitted with a luxurious interior (to include a veneered dash board and door cappings), additional instrumentation and an option on ‘servo’ (power) assisted brakes! Not bad for a 95 year old motor car.
Only 5 Remaining Worldwide!
Harriet is recorded alongside Alice, our other white vintage Citroen and Dorothy, our Burgundy version of the same vehicle as 1 of only 5 survivors worldwide.
Safety, reliability and comfort are our top priorities so Harriet, like Alice and Dorothy, has had some very sensible and concealed modifications made to enable her to meet our strict standards.
We have restored the exterior and refitted the interior with immaculate ivory leather and luxurious seats. The doors open wide, past 90 degrees, so getting in and out is easy, even with a large wedding dress!
Harriet is fully weather-proofed, with a heater to enable year-round operation.
