Nothing really to go wrong with that car.

If it's all there then it all works when it's mechanical, manual everything.

Looking at the clocks i'm sure that if they didn't have to put a fuel gague there they wouldn't have even bothered with that!

I don't think though that the car would get any points for getting anywhere when fully loaded.

oh really archaic!
I like those early BX14 Breaks no black rubbisch, just one color, no reeling on roof.

My absolute favourite would be a Mk 1 Break, but BX 14 Break was released first time in April 1986 (--> Mk 2?) as XB XY (very mystic!).

I had to do my 14 Break by my self, even with the very long translated gear box the car is strong enough, just 1st gear is too long for diffificult terrain.

I wonder why Citroen sold the 14 Break just in F, I, GR.

Today(!) you can buy a Berlingo 1.4i which is more than 300kg heavier and slightly more (<10%) torque.

BX 16 TGI Break (but with BX14 engine (KDY) + c/r 10.3:1 + longest gear box (AX Diesel) + OEM steering assitance)
