PARIS. Action de NF75. brown, green, black. # 3904000. No 3705672. Vignette of the Citroën marque, and an open road. André Citroën started his own gear-making company in 1913. In 1919 he, with Jules Salomon, used American-style mass-production methods for a 1.3 litre, 4-cylinder car. In 1921 no less than 10,000 were built. The range expanded and by the mid-1920s the cars were being produced also in England, Germany and Italy. The company was, with Peugeot and Renault, one of France's 'big three'. In 1935 André Citroën was in serious financial difficulties, and sold his interests to Michelin. Michelin sold these later to Peugeot, which still controls Citroën today, although has allowed a successful marque to continue.
