Trade-in car. This is a particularly original 1972 Citroën DS 21 Pallas. This DS has been in Holland since 1998 and all that time has been in the same hands. Before than it resided in the sunny South of France. The hot sun has faded the original paintwork somewhat. Faded but still authentic. The brown leather interior trim is completely original and has a lovely patina. The carpets are used but neat. Over the years the headliner has given in to the force of gravity. The previous owner however has ingeniously called that process to a halt by judicious application of a few wooden latices, which in turn only enhances the DS’s irresistible charm. Mechanically the car is sound. The 4-cylinder 2.2 petrol engine runs wonderfully well and still has ample power. The manual 5-speed gearbox shifts smoothly and accurately. The car’s mechanical prowess is down to years of dedicated maintenance and its low mileage of 76,700 km. This DS’s fine bodywork has nice and thin and correctly aligned body panels. As of now these panels have not been treated, so as to preserve the DS’s authenticity. We have to cast our minds back quite a while to recall finding such an original Citroën DS 21 Pallas.
