About Roof Hard Tops
Although most modern motor cars have a Citroenhard top roof, when the automobile was first developed, they were open. The hard top car was only introduced around the time of the First World War. Many of the Citroenhard top roofs were detachable in the early years, being connected to the car by being bolted onto the body.
Over the years, as fully closed bodies became the most popular choice, the central roof support post was removed to give the car a more open aspect and permanently attached Citroenhard top roof cars became the norm.
Although the vast majority of Citroenhard top roofs are permanently attached, there are still some makers that produce removable hard tops and, of course, there is a range of convertible cars where the Citroenhard top roof is retractable. When required, the roof of the car is retracted into the vehicle’s boot.
For those who do not want a convertible car but would like the benefit of fresh air and sunshine, a useful compromise is a sun roof. A sun roof can also be retractable and is cut into the vehicle’s roof to offer some of the benefits of a convertible Citroenhard top roof without the additional expense and maintenance associated with a hard top convertible.

The Citroën 2CV was designed for driving on French roads, so it was incredibly sturdy, and tests were carried out by driving through ploughed fields with trays of eggs on the seats. Although changes in design happened, some version of the Citroën 2CV was in production from 1949 all the way through to 1990.
- In 1968, Citroën bought control of the Italian car firm Maserati. That purchase led to the design of the Citroën GT, which came with hydro-pneumatic suspension and a V6 engine. It did well in terms of sales, but production of the last version, the DS23 Pallas Electronique, was stopped in 1975 after the '73 oil crisis.
- In 2019, the Citroën DS was voted in the UK as the 'coolest car ever', with writers and marketers calling it the Brigitte Bardot of cars. In second place was the E-Type Jag…
