    Wanted! Old DS's in WA!

    I am after any old Deeses in any cond in WA. I am willing to travel to country areas for the right examples. I know there are many just sitting there rotting away so please let me know if you come across any! I basically want them for parts, but would prefer complete cars at reasonable prices. Unfortunately WA does not have the experienced 'ID/DS mechanics that the East has so I am hoping to at least save some bucks 2_cents in parts so I can use the savings for excessive labour! cry I have owned 20 Citroens & find it extremely annoying getting value for money repairs/service for my D, All my other Cits are well catered for but not the D! Any info would be greatly appreciated. :p Many Thanks.

    No experienced mechanics.....?? I suggest a call to Mark Dyson at Euromotive in Osborne Park.

    There were a number of DS/ID Citroens on a block on the right hand side of the main road to Manjimup somewhere past Donneybrook but I can't remember exactly which little town. I gather the owner doesn't part with them but worth another look I guess.

    Bad Zykyra, baaaaadddddd mallet

    Must not wreck early DS's ... Must not... tongue They are getting way to rare to wreck. If you'd said "After early DS to restore" I'm sure people would be more helpful ...

    cheers! cheers!

    He does have a very nice 5 speed GS wagon ... but I think I know what you mean.

    Good luck with the D's!

    When I was last up at Laurie Borg's place he said he was thinking of selling his wrecks. Im not sure if he's over east still? I figure the guys at ACE could put you onto the right people.

    There's a 1974 DS in today's West and in the Quokka. Redone interior, says it's OK, $6,000.

    Not forgetting my 74 D Special that's selling for $6500 - on the condition that it will not be wrecked/used for parts but continued to be babied and pampered as a DS should. Refer to my earlier post or email me direct for more details:

    Thanks for everyones replies head_ban but my quest still continues for the elusive wrecked citroen_ "DS"! question I am mainly after body parts as my engine seems to be bullet proof & I am about to spend big bucks on getting the car rust proofed & painted. In particular I need the front guards (L & RHS), front & rear bumper trims & 2 hub caps. Any help would be greatly appreciated. WA needs another good D on the road! I thought about buying an existing car but, when finished, I want to know "every" little detail of my cars restoration so their are no gremlins so to speak eek! ! cheers! Justin
