A-Series Citroëns were made in Argentina for many years but they were all but identical to the French models. However, the 602 cm3 version of the 2CV was called 3CV.
Production started in 1960 and continued until the late 1970s. Due to the political and economic conditions that prevailed in Argentina, Citroën ceased manufacturing cars in 1980 although vehicles continued to be assembled from parts on hand and CKD kits until the time of the Falklands War when because of French support for the British, the factory was confiscated and given to INDUSTRIAS Eduardo SAL-LARI S.A. (I.E.S.).
IES built numerous variations on the 2CV theme.
