    If that's for real it has to be the bargain of the century, 1959 Citroen DS19 - $3500

    Well worth restoring even if it has serious rust. . . she can park her slippers under my bed anytime

    If anyone wants it shipped they should touch base with OzHemi. He's around the 'net.

    The car is on Bring A Trailer as well. Quite a few comments.

    I am a bit amazed by the driver's footwell - is that the accelerator pedal on the left side?! I have never seen a pedal arrangement like that...

    It won't linger, it's probably sold already.

    That's the 'Foot' handbrake pedal, you can see the release knob just above - these were used on BVH cars.

    If anyone could do it justice, you could . . .

    Reality bites - quick math suggests Aus$8 - 10,000 to see it landed here - then the fun begins

    Look at Dee prices. It still makes excellent sense.

    Couldn't agree more, not so much the common garden variety but a fairly unmolested complete '59 DS BVH for this entry price has to be a worthwhile project. Though it would be the kind of car you would hang on to, the finished value only being relevant for insurance purposes.

    Scott says tentatively sold with second buyer waiting with cash. Bit slow on this one. Can you imagine how much fun that would be flying in, spending a while getting it drivable and then going on a holiday before shipping home? That was one that got away.

    It really does look nice ........................ I think given the scattering of photos, it hints there is quite a bit of rust in the hull though. Note box section/floor area in the interior piccies... the boot has rust holes at the base, and signs of holes along the sides. It might be a much, much bigger project than it initially looks

    It would already be in my shed if it had been advertised in Australia either way
