Citroen DS full Restauration

Starting Bid: 18 000

fully restored Citroën DS
A few years fully restored, both mechanically and cosmetically. As a result, the car is also in perfect condition and drives as if it had just left the showroom. The car has an annual value report from a recognized expert. The last estimate was made on 17 February 2019 and was then estimated at 58,000 euros. The recognised appraiser Meunier Philippe declared the car to be in good condition.

The DS was presented at the Paris Motor Show on 6 October 1955 and struck like a bomb (“La Bombe Citroën”). The car had several characteristics and applied techniques which had not been combined in one car until then. On the first day, 12,000 orders were placed for the new car and by the end of the week this had even risen to 80,000, a number that placed the factory for major production problems. It was only in the course of 1956 that delivery could actually begin. In the meantime, many orders had already been cancelled.
At the end of 1956 a simpler version came on the market: the ID.

The ID/DS was delivered by Citroën in various versions: saloon (sedan), estate car (estate car), and convertible (convertible). Several bodybuilders also built ambulances on the basis of the ‘break’. Henri Chapron, who made the convertible and the ‘prestige'[1] for Citroën, also built various compartments, convertibles and saloon cars under his own name. In addition, dozens of other coachbuilders in various countries built special models based on the ID/DS. These modifications were made relatively easily thanks to a unique combination of features of the ID/DS; front-wheel drive, self-supporting platform chassis, separate body parts, hydraulic system, capital-rich target group, and the large circulation and long production period of the model.

The DS came third in the “Car of the Century” election in 1999 and was voted “most beautiful car of all time” by a panel of eminent car designers commissioned by the British magazine “Classic & Sports Car”.
