About this Citroen DS

Launched at the Paris motor show in 1955, the Citroën DS shocked the world with its aerodynamic design and innovative technology and it is reported that in the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken and almost 12,000 in the first day! A symbol of French ingenuity, it was a spaceship by the standards of the time and it was manufactured from 1955 through to 1975.

The Citroën DS featured many innovative features and was the first mass-production car with front Disc Brakes, Hydropneumatic and Independant Suspension including an automatic self-levelling system, Power Steering, a fibreglass roof which reduced weight and consequently its centre of gravity and new radial tyre technology which the engineers exploited through its parent company Michelin.

There are very few cars manufactured today that can match the ride and comfort of a Citroën DS and it was an unlikely winner of the Monte Carlo Rally in 1959 and controversially again in 1966 due to the hydro pneumatic suspension coping so well over rough terrain.

The Citroën DS was placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's '100 Coolest Cars' listing in 2005 and was also named one of the most beautiful cars of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers.

The South African assembly of the DS began towards the end of 1959 at Natalspruit on the outskirts of Johannesburg and after 20 years in 1969 production moved to the old Jeep factory in Pretoria on a temporary basis as the following year it relocated again to the former British Leyland factory at Port Elizabeth in the Cape Province in 1970. By then just the DS20 and DS20M were being produced. The only real difference between the South African and French built cars were the Vinyl Seats rather than leather and a few other minor locally sourced parts.

By the time Citroen closed their operations in South Africa in 1979, almost 11,000 DS models were produced, but unfortunately all records have been lost and the exact number of each DS model built is unknown.

This lovely South African built Right Hand Drive Citroën DS 20 - Chassis No: 0569030803 and Engine No: 0569030803 is 'Matching Numbers' car and is finished in Black with a really beautiful Tan Vinyl interior and excellent mechanics and chrome work. It is a totally rust-free example and is fitted with the 'Five Speed' Manual Gearbox making it a very rare car indeed.

According to the paperwork, it was first registered on 1st January 1970 in Johannesburg and is showing 66,465 Kms (41,300 miles) on the speedometer, although due to no early history with the car we are unable to confirm its actual mileage from new, but we were advised that it is genuine and looking at the condition of the car overall, it would suggest that it most probably is correct.

The car was purchased in 2014 by a well known car collector in South Africa and it has formed part of his collection for the last 7 years until we purchased the car this summer and shipped it to the UK in October. The previous two owners to him were both members of the Citroen Car Club of South Africa and the car is quite well known in Citroen circles and has competed in a number of Club Rallies.

Upon delivery to ourselves, we sent the car to Citroen DS specialist DS Workshop in Barnet and they have carried out a full checkover and re-commissioning of the car including a major service with many new parts having been fitted including new brake Discs and pads, a new set of Tyres and much more. Their invoice for £6,306.38 is attached in the Documents and gives a full list of all parts replaced and works carried out. They did tell us that this car is a very rare 5 Speed version and is in really good original condition and also one of the nicest examples they have driven for a while! The Engine and Gearbox are both excellent, the interior is beautiful and the Hydropneumatic Suspension works as it should and the paint and bodywork is exceptionally nice with only the odd blemish.

We are now in the process of registering the car here in the UK with the DVLA and upon sale the car will come with our own customer care package including full HPI/provenance Checks, a new MOT and our own 6 months Mechanical Breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
