The 2CV “Fourgonnette” (or Truckette) played as important a part of the 2CV story as the car. Ultimately, over a million examples were built, which accounted for nearly a third of the total 2CV production. It was first shown to the public at the 1950 Paris Motor Show and was available the following year. The popularity of the car with shopkeepers, tradesmen, and farmers made an easy transition to the Truckette. The mechanical elements of the 2CV were used as the basis for this small truck. It was ideal for the streets of urban cities where parking is tight and commercial vehicles are taxed by size. The changes on the Truckette followed those of the 2CV car. It was replaced in the 1980s by the Dyane-based “Acadiane.” This Truckette was used by the Belgian Postal Service to deliver mail.
