Citreon U55 Cityrama Currus

Back in the late 1950’s with optimism for the future following the war and normal life and tourism taking hold in Europe, particularly France Cityrama a tour operator commissioned Currus to build some bespoke coaches. Looking into a fantastic future these were sculpted out of glass with a nod to the Flash Gordon comic books of the time over a truck chassis, just look at that detail sticking out from the roof. With a retractable glass roof to allow cooler air in and two floors it was and is like nothing else and allowed the passenger to see everything clearly. Perfect for a sight seeing tour of Paris.
