French registration title Very nice DS 23 equipped with electronic fuel injection and the very rare optional air conditioning! The 130 hp engine is coupled to the amazing hydraulic gearbox. The car has been restored several years ago with a veil of paint in its original Tholonet beige colour, with a very nice gold velvet interior (rarer than leather). If the paintwork is a bit old and shows some imperfections, the chassis and the undercarriage are in excellent condition and show absolutely no trace of corrosion as the car has always been stored in a garage, as is the interior which is also in perfect condition.  Put on the road on 21 May 1973, it was bought new in Lyon, then sold in 2005 to a Citroën dealer in Eure-et-Loir (Nogentle-Rotrou). Displayed in his Citroën showroom, it remained in his possession until 2009 before being presented at auction at the 24 Hours of Le Mans museum for the official sale celebrating the brand’s 90th anniversary, where it was acquired by its current owner who has kept it and maintained it to this day. 4th hand, it now has just over 107,000 km. Regularly maintained by the Garage Daunat Classique or the Atelier Bernasse (89), its operation is impeccable. The spheres, the fuel gauge, the reflection of the silencer and the recharging of the air conditioning and the replacement of the tyres by Michelin XAS were carried out at the beginning of the year. A final inspection will be carried out at Daunat before the sale. The air conditioning is perfectly operational (York compressor recently replaced, circuit checked and recharged) which is very interesting on this model! Without any doubt the best Citroën DS for its road handling, its powerful and torquey engine, its hydraulic gearbox and its few options. Its clear history and its very reasonable mileage, its strict conformity to the original (which is becoming rare on DS) and the health of its engine and its chassis / body make it an opportunity not to be missed!
