This ultimate DS is a collector piece acquired from the Citromuseum in Castellane France in 2014. Before being acquired by the museum, it had only one original owner, in South of France. The odometer has a genuine 85,323 Km. It is in a 9+ condition, of course with matching numbers.
Before being imported to Canada in a container, a complete technical overall was performed by the Citromuseum owner and expert Henri Fradet. April 2019, the car was shipped in a container to Grangemouth/Scotland and then driven to Shetland, its present location. It underwent an MOT (although not required by DVLA) and has a period license plate. Darrin Brownhill , owner of Citroen Classics http://www.citroenclassics.co.uk , inspected the car in October 2019 and did the usual maintenance. He can be contacted for technical questions of a prospective buyer. The car is left-hand drive.
Special features of the car include: 60’s period steering wheel and door handles (correct for this 1971 model); an aluminum roof; built in CIBIE fog lamps; headrests and front arm rest.

Since the car left the museum in 2014 it was always with the same owner and stored in a garage with underfloor heating. Extensive photos taken before the car left Canada can be viewed here https://flic.kr/s/aHskGm5JFz .
