1969 - Citroën DS 21 Prestige Ex PDG de Citroën Monsieur Bercot
We would like to inform buyers that this vehicle has been little used the last years as it is part of  the Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS Museum. It is therefore sold as presented, without any technical inspection and will require a general overhaul before being driven on the road. We invite you to contact our team in order to consult the files of each vehicle presented. French registration Chassis number: 4643579 Exceptional history Rare prestige version Original condition The vehicle we present is a DS 21 Prestige manufactured on September 23rd, 1969. It was used as a model for a series of photographs accompanying a press release addressed to dealers, in order to present this model to a wealthy clientele. It was used as a company vehicle by Pierre Bercot, Citroën's number one from 1958 to 1971. The registration certificate, updated in 1983, is still held by Automobiles Citroën and is still registered in the name of Automobiles Citroën. This model in Comfort finish, soberly equipped, humble and innovative at the same time, is in the image of Pierre Bercot. This man and this car are inseparable. Hired by Michelin in 1937, he was appointed assistant to Pierre Boulanger to support him in the management of the chevron brand. A discreet man and promoter of innovation, he took responsibility for the VGD program (which led to the DS), giving André Lefebvre carte blanche to create an avant-garde vehicle. Today, this model is in its strict original condition, having never been restored, its exceptional history alone justifies the most beautiful restoration.
