While Artcurial took the spotlight at this year’s Retromobile netting record prices for auctioning off the Roger Baillon collection, RM Classics and Bonhams also conducted auctions the annual classic Paris event. RM offered no Citroëns but Bonhams had a few double chevron badged vehicles on the block including:
• Citroënvie member Greg Long’s 1956 DS19 Berline (which was found in in barn and shipped from Greg’s home near Seattle, WA in that condition) was sold for €25.300. Congratulations Greg!
• a 1971 SM in well maintained original condition sold for €27.600.
• a recently restored 1968 DS 21 décapotable that went for a very reasonable (by DS cabriolet standards) €105,800
• a 1939 Traction 11BL cabriolet in the current owner’s possession since 1971 and restored between 2007 and 2009. It fetched a very respectable €184,000
