    Default DS23 Pallas

    Lovely looking DS23 on carsales. '74 Pallas model, seemingly a hydraulique gear change... $39k...

    This was for sale for about six months in Just Cars magazine. Hasn't appeared in this month's issue. Pity about the colour & doubt it's original. Love to see it though. Twenty three hydraulics are rare & would be a private import.

    Default DS23 -v- SM prices......

    Can a DS be worth more than an SM?

    the ad on CarSales immediately above the DS23 is for a good looking going and useable SM for less money than the DS23!

    am I the only one who thinks that is a bit weird?

    now yes the DS23 looks fabulous and appears to be in wonderful nick, a/c, hydraulic transmission etc

    but an SM is an SM and a DS is a DS

    Hi Jon,

    For a long time good DS's have been selling for more than a decent SM - you often just don't get to see them advertised...

    I think the SM is a specialist market within itself wheras the DS has a broader appeal to the (relative) masses.

    Just my 2c worth...

    Think that's dead right. I've noticed SM's stay on the UK market (if there actually is a market) for a very long time, whereas DS do seem to sell a bit more readily. Think some SM do sell at low prices, below those of D's but you are into major expense if bodywork/structural repairs are needed, whereas there are plenty of bits for the DS. It's a shame because the engine in the SM makes it and is very reliable if cared for - a Citroen with a proper engine!
