Description: 1965 Citroën DS 19 cabriolet
Sans reserve

Carte grise française
Châssis n° 4294071

- Seulement trois propriétaires depuis l''origine
- Une émouvante sortie de grange
- Un beau projet de restauration
- Sans réserve

Le cabriolet DS19 que nous présentons est une émouvante sortie de grange. Il s''agit de l''un des derniers cabriolets " usine " de sa série, mis en circulation le 30 avril 1965. Fait important, l''historique de cette voiture est limpide, elle n''a effet connu que trois propriétaires à ce jour et fut conservée dans les mêmes mains de 1968 à 2016. Elle fut livrée neuve en 1965, achetée par une entreprise de la Somme avant de rejoindre la Normandie en 1968. L''histoire de cette voiture est singulière, car c''est à la suite d''un choc arrière dans les années 70 qu''elle fut immobilisée dans l''attente d''une restauration qui n''eut finalement jamais lieu. Cette DS fut donc remisée en Normandie et resta ainsi de nombreuses années sans rouler, se dégradant avec le temps et l''immobilisation prolongée. Son compteur affiche un peu moins de 80 000 km, ce qui pourrait très vraisemblablement correspondre, à son kilométrage d''origine. Ce rare cabriolet " sortie de grange " qui est à reprendre dans son intégralité, représente un très beau projet de restauration. Elle propose une livrée associant une couleur extérieure grise à une sellerie de cuir rouge. Notre DS est équipée de la boite hydraulique et serait dotée de son moteur d''origine. Les DS cabriolets sont très prisées des collectionneurs et leur cote actuelle permet d''envisager une restauration de qualité. Un tel exemplaire ne saurait laisser insensibles les amateurs de la marque aux chevrons.

- Only three owners since new
- A touching barn find
- A beautiful restoration project
- No reserve

This DS19 cabriolet that we are offering is a very touching barn find. It is one of the last "factory" convertibles from its series, and was first registered on April 30, 1965. Importantly, the history of this car is very clear, as it has had only three owners to date and has been in the same hands from 1968 to 2016. It was delivered new in 1965, bought by a company from North of France, before moving to Normandy in 1968. The history of this car is special because following an impact in the rear in the 1970s, it was kept aside, with the plans to be restored, which never happened. It then remained garaged in Normandy, and thus remained so for many years without being driven, degrading over a period of time. Its odometer displays a little less than 80,000 km, which would very likely correspond to its original mileage. This rare "barn find" cabriolet, which has to be completely restored, represents a beautiful restoration project. It is in a livery that associates a grey exterior color with red leather upholstery. Our DS is equipped with the hydraulic box and might have its original engine. DS cabriolets are very sought after by collectors and their current market value allows a high quality restoration. For true fans of the brand, such an interesting car cannot be ignored.
