The records of Citroën, Panhard and Peugeot cars are held in the archives of Association l’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS. By contacting them, they can provide a certificate of the build date, (written in french). It will show:
- Date of manufacture
- Body version (Sedan, Roadster…)
- Finish level (Pallas…)
- Confirmation if the provided numbers (engine, body, bodyshell) are a match together.
And if the car was built after the ’70s, there are other details:
- Version (2CV Charleston…)
- Name of the dealership
The amount of information available about your car varies depending on its brand, model and year.
Recently they received a Microfilm Scanner, so they can, if available, provide a digital copy of the record at a fee of €20. (€15 if you are a member of L’ Amicale Citroën Internationale).
