Description

Chassis # 4294071

- Only three owners since new
- A touching barn find
- A beautiful restoration project
- No reserve

This DS19 cabriolet that we are offering is a very touching barn find. It is one of the last "factory" convertibles from its series, and was first registered on April 30, 1965. Importantly, the history of this car is very clear, as it has had only three owners to date and has been in the same hands from 1968 to 2016. It was delivered new in 1965, bought by a company from North of France, before moving to Normandy in 1968. The history of this car is special because following an impact in the rear in the 1970s, it was kept aside, with the plans to be restored, which never happened. It then remained garaged in Normandy, and thus remained so for many years without being driven, degrading over a period of time. Its odometer displays a little less than 80,000 km, which would very likely correspond to its original mileage. This rare "barn find" cabriolet, which has to be completely restored, represents a beautiful restoration project. It is in a livery that associates a Gray exterior color with red leather upholstery. Our DS is equipped with the hydraulic box and might have its original engine. DS cabriolets are very sought after by collectors and their current market value allows a high quality restoration. For true fans of the brand, such an interesting car cannot be ignored.
