About Roof Linings
One of the most important features of a car’s upholstery is the Citroenroof lining. The Citroenroof lining serves several functions. The first of these is purely decorative. The Citroen roof lining should match the rest of the interior décor of the vehicle.
Secondly, the Citroen roof lining provides a protective barrier between the interior of the car and the car’s exterior metal roof. This ensures that the head/s of the driver and any of the passengers is prevented from coming to harm if they come into contact with the roof as a result of the car hitting a bump or being involved in a collision.
Thirdly, the Citroen roof lining serves to keep the inside of the car insulated against noise from the outside. Because it is padded, often with a foam backing, the Citroen roof lining is able to drown out external noise.
Finally, the Citroen roof lining keeps the heat of the car in its interior and insulates against the cold air from the outside getting into the car.
Because of all of these important functions, a car’s Citroen roof lining should be kept in good condition. If it is damaged, it should be replaced and there are a large number of vehicle upholsterers who are able to fit a new Citroen roof lining for a reasonable price.
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
- The founder of the company, André Citroën, is renowned as something of a genius when it comes to marketing. He specifically targeted adverts for the 1922 Citroën Type C at women owners, and soon after the car became very popular, earning the nickname 'Petit Citron' after the distinctive lemon yellow paint job.
- French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
- If you went into a Citroën showroom in the 20s, there's a good chance that you would have been given a letter that was personally handwritten by Andre Citroën himself, proclaiming the benefits of the car models. This one act of marketing genius is credited with being responsible for thousands of closed sales.
