Citroën HY with closed body, well-known and loved

ER Classics Desktop 2022

This Citroën HY with closed body is from 1966 and a beauty due to its simplicity. The HY remained in production for no less than 35 years and there were many versions of the assembly line.

He now has the task of reflecting the quality of a brewery in Dockum that brings special beer to the attention under the name 'Kâld Kletske'. 

The brewmaster Tim Cuperus is convinced of the quality of the restoration of the Citroën HY with a closed structure and of course the quality of its fresh beers. The performance of the HY is similar to the human 50+, not fast but very reliable. 

In the Dockum brewery, cosiness prevails. The word "rush" is an unknown phenomenon. For the Kâld Kletske it is a real eye catcher with a large crowd of enthusiasts, the proof is that pictures are made of it almost daily. The quirky is clearly present, one Citroën HY is not just a car, and the 'Kâld Kletske' is not just a beer.
