    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Going by the rego plate 1-OAK-352 looks like the car was a Citrothello restoration. . .

    It's interesting how for some models of car, the later chasses are more desirable in the marketplace. Seems the same for Silver Ghosts, the pre '68 with hydraulic front struts are less valuable than later ones with only rear height correction.

    I think with this car you are buying 'provenance', it is claimed to be the earliest DS19 Cabriolet in existence, a pre delivery model with some features exclusive to it? Othello describes some of these in his blurb. . .

    I guess there would be no cars now that haven't undergone some form of restoration, this car appears to have the full monty. Converted to LHM, colour change, interior change. You could only imagine what it might have been worth in preserved original condition.

    Shadow? Also, they precede the engine enlargement to 6.75l and TH400 gearbox.

    For the D, more than one person clearly valued it above some others that have gone before on condition and maybe the ability to tell all and sundry they own the earliest usine survivor. Having the 'right' chassis number can make a large difference!

    Er, yes - Shadow!

    I was actually suggesting this decap is at the low end of where their prices are going.
