    Some nice kit there; the "Mylord" really is a cracker.

    I wonder if the centre consul AC unit is original taken from a prestige or reproduction? A fully intergrated unit with in-dash vents. Never seen one locally on a Pallas. I'm very envious, this is most desirable.

    It's definitely original Citroen, I have seen a few over the years, never seen one locally with that same configuration........ unfortunately.

    The story I heard about the name was simply that Chapron had finished the car, but it was still unchristened. That was until shortly after the build he was totting up the cost. He took one look at the bottom line, one look at the car, another look at the bottom line, and uttered "my lord!".




    I will be awaiting eventual banishment for this.

    In case any of you are in the market, the Mylord starting price equates to $607,855 at today's rate. Can that be true?

    It has provenance including the Paris Motor Show and a well cared for history. Mylords are far rarer than DS Cabriolets and they pull good money in the right condition. The market will determine if the estimate is worthy.

    One off custom done by a well regarded coach builder on a famous semi-rare chassis? May not be true (I didn't check the pricing), but certainly not beyond the pale. Shouldn't be too surprising- even well used, in-need-of-restoration D Decaps are going for 100K plus. And we all know that auctions can go quietly, or they can go screaming bonkers. All it takes is a couple of well heeled buyers competing for the same bragging rights in a very expensive game of 'Chicken'.

    There were at least three Mylords at ICCCR 2008. Whether they are genuine and not just knock offs I do not know.

    You're probably right, Craig. I thought it was just the one. Considering Chapron's output, 3 is much more likely. Your note that the one for sale being the Paris Motor Show car makes it somewhat more valuable.

    We all have seen auction estimates that are somewhat understated. 750K-1M+ for this car would not surprise me at all.
