    Default Just purchased a 1970 Citroen ID20 Safari

    Thanks for adding me on Australia Day

    Advertisement


    I just bought my 3rd Citroen last week down in Adelaide (previously had 2 Dyanes). The owners didn't have too much history other than she came down from Queensland and was used to follow off road rally's? Just wondering if anybody recognises her and has any further information. There can't be too many of these in Australia......actually anybody any idea how many?

    Needs a little bit of work but looking forward to taking her for a trip around the Barossa.

    Cheers!

    That's lovely. As usual with a Safari purchase, there are probably waves of envy spreading out. Enjoy.

    As an ex safari owner I am green with envy. Looks to be in pretty good
    original condition - a great find. I live in Adelaide(prospect) and currently have a d special. Would love to see it in the flesh sometime!

    That's very fixable if you take the door skin off first.

    $5000. That seems like an absolute bargain for a Safari.

    Welcome fizwoz,

    Looking at the few pics, yes it does look like a bargain at $5000.00

    Possible but finding someone with panel skills these days could be a challenge? Skins are available and may work out to be a more cost effective repair.

    I'd be looking for a good replacement door, sedan doors are a straight swap for the Safari so opens up possibilities - looks like the rear door glass survived so would just need to be dropped in.

    The GM/Robri door protective strip could be hard to find, might need to keep an eye peeled on French/German Ebay.

    fizwoz,
    A good starting point would be to run an ad in our 'Parts' forum, you never know your luck. . .

    Cheers

    Thanks Chris appreciate your advice....yes luckily the glass survived and I've managed to find a replacement salon door here in Adelaide and know a good panel beater so hopefully should be all good in a few weeks time. The strip survived...a bit bent but it was in the back of the car. The hydraulics seem to be leaking...cycles ever 15 seconds....think it should be nearer 30....will get that checked out. Seats also need attention....might get them redone in leather...depends on the cost. Some rust bubbles on the roof...but thats all I can find.....hopefully an easy fix and I can tidy up the rest myself. She's great to drive.....puts a smile on your face

    easy fix if the 'C' pillar isn't bent. best place to check for rust is under the rear windows I'd imagine. $5000 is a great deal if it's not rotten
