    I wouldn't imagine there are too many of these about. In not bad condition either.

    Barbecue grills on a third nose, and they don't look bad at all.

    Saw the same car at Winton last year - - I think, pulling a wooden speed boat.

    the vents (?cendriers?) on the mudguards are one thing but the bonnet being similarly embellished is pushing it for me.

    I'm not trying to be smart but the bonnet ornament was an after market accessory. I actually have one somewhere.

    I remember motorcycle racers in the 70s being fond of Safaris because
    you could fit your ubiquitous 250 or 350 TZ Yamaha in the back.

    I'm not meaning the bit like a handle, central, at the pointy end, but the two inboard of those on the wings; are we talking about the same thing/s?

    Love the car, it is in very nice condition. Only thing detracts from a good Citroen is the Sun Visor. A car with such good sleek lines dose not need that appendage stuck above the screen. All the rest is great.
