Description: 1969 Citroën DS 21 Rallye Coupé"raccourci"
No reserve

Carte grise française
Châssis n° 49396913

- Un pan de l''histoire de Citroën en rallye
- Auto en bel état, prête à prendre part à des rallyes historiques
- Une des (très) rares DS raccourcies d''époque
- Sans réserve

Ce sont les qualités de tenue de route notamment dues à la suspension hydropneumatique qui feront de la DS une redoutable arme en rallye.
S''inspirant du prototype utilisé par Bob Neyret, vainqueur à son volant du Rallye du Maroc, Marcel Lavalle a construit en 1969 sa propre " DS courte ", avec un châssis raccourci de 52 cm. Pilotée par son constructeur, avec J.P Chastin comme copilote, la voiture a pris part à de nombreuses épreuves en 1969 et 1970, en France dans les rallyes du Mistral, d''Antibes, du Pétrole-Provence, du Vaucluse, la Coupe des Alpes et le Critérium des Cévennes, et dans le calendrier international, le Tour Auto du Portugal.
Elle a ensuite passé de nombreuses années dans le garage d''un collectionneur de la région d''Avignon, avant d''être achetée par Roger Reynier. Ce dernier a alors décidé d''effectuer des travaux de carrosserie et la voiture fut repeinte en bleu de France. Il a également souhaité offrir une cure de jouvence au moteur en le confiant à Philippe Chauvet, qui s''est chargé de la préparation, la mise au point étant réalisée par Marc Fanciullo, avec pour résultat une puissance de 119,4 cv au banc. Cette remise en état s''est accompagnée d''améliorations, notamment sur le tableau de bord.
Dans sa configuration actuelle, ce prototype DS a participé avec succès à de nombreux rallyes de régularité et de régularité sportive, et aujourd''hui, son propriétaire verrait d''un très bon œil un amateur prendre sa succession. Peut-être vous ?

Chassis n ° 49396913

- A part of Citroën''s rallying history
- In good condition, ready to take part in historical rallies
- One of the (very) rare shortened DS
- No reserve

The handling qualities particular to the hydropneumatic suspension system made the DS a formidable rally weapon.
Inspired by the prototype used by Bob Neyret, winner of the Rallye du Maroc, Marcel Lavalle built his own "DS Courte" in 1969, with the chassis shortened by 52cm. Driven by Lavalle, with J.P. Chastin as co-driver, the car took part in numerous events in 1969 and 1970, in France in the rallies Mistral, Antibes, Pétrole-Provence, Vaucluse, Criterium du Cevennes, and internationally the Tour Auto in Portugal.
The car then spent many years in the garage of a collector next to Avignon before being bought by Roger Reynier. Reynier decided to carry out work on the body and the car was painted French racing blue. He also wanted the engine to be overhauled and gave it to Philippe Chauvet, in charge of the car''s preparation, with the development work carried out by Marc Fanciullo, resulting in a max power of 119.4bhp on the dyno. This overhaul was carried alongside other improvements, notably to the dashboard.
In its current configuration, this DS prototype has successfully participated in many regularity rallies and sporting events, and today its owner would very much welcome another enthusiast to take on the baton. Maybe that could be you?
