1972 Citroën D–Special

Canadian spec model. 4-speed manual gearbox, power steering, 123 electronic ignition installed. New battery.

Overall it is in good driver condition. Runs well. Hydraulics, shifting and braking all good. There is a slight ticking in the engine. (I suspect that the valves could use adjustment.) Other than that the engine runs fine.

There was some patching to the sills and floor done at some point, and although you can see the added surface panels have oxidized, the doors close fine and the car seems solid. Though if you are going to dive in and address the rusty sections, then I think the lower cowl and sills would be worth replacing. Drive it in fair weather and none of that need be addressed.

One tire had gone flat and I used the support stand raising the car with the hydraulics to put on the spare, but I did not secure the stand over the lift post properly. Consequently the stand slipped and the sill at the driver’s door got crunched a bit. Not pretty, bit it only affected the sill covering and the plate on the outer edge. In a way I guess a good thing as you get to see the metal under the sill covering. And new sill coverings are readily available.

The car is located in London, ON. Importation into the USA is not a problem.

Asking $13,500 USD — F.O.B. London.
