We received the following press release from The association L’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS:
The association L’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS was created in 2015 to preserve the heritage of all PSA Group brands and expanding and developing that heritage across the world. (This association is out of the PSA Group)
The Association represents over 200 years of history and consists of several heritage operations, L’Aventure Peugeot, Citroën Heritage, DS Héritage, L’Aventure Peugeot Museum in Sochaux, The Conservatoire Citroën-DS in Aulnay, L ’Aventure Automobile in Poissy and The Archives centre based within the Terre Blanche site in Hérimoncourt.
L’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS, does employ a team of dedicated staff supplemented by a network of volunteers, often former employees of Groupe PSA, in its daily operations. These staff are active across all the sites supplying Advice, Certification, Restoration, Archive Identification, Event Organisation and Public Relations. Their experience and knowledge of the PSA Group guarantee an excellent service across every field that we represent.
The records of Citroën, Panhard and Peugeot cars are held in our archives. It is possible (if the car is original) to provide some birth certificate including:
- Date of manufacture
- Body version (Sedan, Roadster…)
- Finish (eg: DS Pallas…)
Confirmation if the provided numbers (engine, body, bodyshell) match together.
If the car was built after the seventies, there are other details :
- Version (DS Cabriolet, 2CV Charleston…)
- Name of the dealership
The amount of information available about your car varies depending on its brand, model and year. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
Please note that currently, the 1972-1978 Citroën invoices are not available. Hopefully, they are safely stored in the thousand of boxes on heavy pallets.

I guess, since my vehicle is a 1974, I’m out of luck. Perhaps down the road those documents will be uncovered and made available. Many thanks for the help.
