Description: 1962 Citroën DS 19 cabriolet
Carte grise française
Châssis n° 4200446

- Un des premiers cabriolets DS avec " ailes cendriers "
- Intégralement restauré il y a 10 ans
- Une icône de l''Automobile française

La DS, sculpture de Flaminio Bertoni, est la grande surprise du Salon de l''Automobile 1955. Etonnante et séduisante, elle fera l''unanimité à son volant tant ses développements techniques sont inédits et avant-gardistes. Il faut attendre 1960 pour que la marque décide de faire produire son propre cabriolet usine par Henri Chapron. Au total, 1 365 cabriolets usine furent fabriqués avec le moteur DS 19 ou DS 21, de 1960 à 1971. Le cabriolet DS19 que nous présentons est un bel exemplaire mis en circulation le 6 aout 1962. Il s''agit donc d''une version rare, correspondant aux premières déclinaisons " cabriolet " sorties en 1961 et munie des "ailes avants cendriers ". En 2008, cette voiture fut achetée par son actuel propriétaire, collectionneur passionné et pilote amateur, auprès de Losson Automobiles, spécialiste de la marque Citroën en général et de la DS et de l''ID en particulier. Cet exemplaire a fait l''objet d''une restauration complète en 2006. Les travaux, conséquents, ont entre-autre porté sur le moteur, les systèmes hydrauliques, la tôlerie, la peinture, la sellerie ainsi que la capote. Cet authentique cabriolet arbore une peinture extérieure gris métal associée à un intérieur en cuir bordeaux. Il est doté d''une boite hydraulique. Les DS cabriolets représentent un certain art de vivre et savoir-faire à la française. Ils sont recherchés car à la fois beaux, confortables et rares. Notre exemplaire, en bon état général de présentation et de fonctionnement, est une belle opportunité d''accéder au plaisir de conduire qu''offre la DS, cheveux au vent qui plus est.

Merci de noter que la voiture est vendue sans contrôle technique.



French title
Chassis # 4200446

- One of the first DS convertibles with "ashtray wings"
- Comprehensively restored 10 years ago
- An icon of the French automobile

The DS, a sculpture by Flaminio Bertoni, was the big surprise of the 1955 Paris Motor Show. Stunning, yet seductive, it was without any doubt at the very forefront of technological progress. It was not until 1960 that Citroën decided to produce its own factory-approved convertible by Henri Chapron. In total, 1,365 factory convertibles were manufactured from 1960 to 1971 with either the DS 19 or the DS 21 engine. The DS19 convertible that we are offering was registered on August 6, 1962. This rare version is one of the very early "cabriolets" launched in 1961 featuring the special "ashray" front wings. In 2008, this car was bought by its current owner, an enthusiast and a gentleman racer, from Losson Automobiles, Citroën specialists in general, and in particular of the DS and ID. The car was completely restored in 2006. Substantial work included those on the engine, hydraulic system, sheet metal, paint, upholstery and the convertible top. This genuine convertible features a metallic grey exterior paint, combined with burgundy leather interior. It is equipped with a hydraulic box. DS cabriolets represent the French art de vivre and know-how. These sought after convertibles are beautiful, comfortable and rare. The car on offer is a great opportunity to access the great driving pleasure of the DS, hair blowing in the wind.
