Lady owner since 2002
Finished in Wedgwood Blue
Marine Blue leather
In all, there were 1,365 factory cabriolets built: 770 DS19s, 483 DS21s, and 112 ID19s. Never common, the popularity of the cabriolet has never waned. Citroen was still receiving orders long after official production ceased in 1971, True cabriolets like this one have doors four inches longer than the saloons and use double latches.
The car on offer is an exceptionally rare, fuel-injected DS cabriolet. The car has been enjoyed by a thoroughly enthusiastic lady owner since 2002, who has religiously serviced the car at least once a year. It has benefited from a comprehensive restoration by a marquee expert in the Netherlands, with copies of the invoices on file.
Finished in Wedgwood Blue with sumptuous Marine Blue leather interior and a matching dark blue mohair soft top, it remains an exceptional example. A modern stacking CD/radio tuner is fitted discretely in the boot and is operated by a remote fob from inside the car, so music can be enjoyed without any visible modifications.
In recent years, the Citroen DS Cabriolet prices have climbed into six figures, as the value of well sorted cars has appreciated; a fresh restoration like this must be considered irresistible, as it has been maintained to the highest standards.
