    Icon12 Interesting take on DS by a Yank flogging one

    EBAY MOTORS

    Vehicle Description

    I'm listing this for my uncle, who does not have a computer. If you have any questions, please contact him directly at 201-836-3495, or email me your number and I'll have him call you. He also has a great deal of parts for sale.

    He is selling 2 Citroens, this one and a 1970 (click on sellers other auctions to see it.) Here is some information on this car and Citroens in general:

    1970 DS-21: BRONZE BODY, WHITE ROOF; 195K MILES: ONE OWNER; CITROMATIC GEARBOX; TOP-QUALITY REAL SHEEPSKIN SEAT COVERS OVER TAN LEATHER UPHOLSTERY; GOOD BODY AND UNDERBODY; BODY AND ENGINE REBUILT BY DAVE BURNHAM; EVERYTHING WORKS; NO RUST; AM/FM CASSETTE RADIO IN DASH W/REAR 8 SPKR; FULLY-LINED TRUNK; ALL HYDRAULICS GOOD; NO LEAKS; YOKOHAMA AND MICHELIN TIRES; USES NO OIL. ONLY 2K ON REBUILT ENGINE.



    DS21 CITROEN AUTOMOBILES



    COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: FRANCE COST WHEN NEW: $5600



    Advertisement


    MODELS AVAILABLE: DS-19; DS-21; DEUX CHEVAUX (TWO FIRES, TWO CYLINDERS) SM (2-DOOR SPORTS CAR WITH MASERATI ENGINE) OS (SMALLER VERSION OFDS)



    MANUFACTURING YEARS: 1955 to 1975; DS MODEL REPLACED BY CX; CX DIS*CONTINUED IN 1989; REPLACED BY XM MODEL WHICH DOES NOT HAVE

    UNIQUELY CHARACTERISTIC STYLING OF DS. HOWEVER, SERVO-HYDRAULIC ACTIVE SUSPENSION FURTHER IMPROVED BY ADDITION OF THIRD SPHERE TN FRONT AND REAR. SUSPENSION LICENSED BY ROLLS ROYCE, LOTUS AND OTHERS.



    DS FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS:



    OVERALL LENGTH: 187 IN; WHEELBASE: 123 IN; WEIGHT; 2600 LB.



    FOUR CYLINDER INLINE ENGINE, CAST-IRON BLOCK, ALUMINUM HEAD 2.1 LITER; FRONT-WHEEL DRIVE, FRONT INBOARD DISC BRAKES WITH LOW-PAD WARNING LIGHT ON DASH, REAR DRUM BRAKES.



    SELF-LEVELING SUSPENSION (NO SPRINGS OR SHOCK ABSORBERS), BODY CAN BE RAISED OR LOWERED 14 IN: CAR JACKS ITSELF UP TO CHANGE TIRES.



    REMOVING ONE BOLT FROM EACH DOOR AND FENDER PERMITS TAKING ENTIRE CAR APART (TOTAL OF 8 BOLTS);



    REMOVING AN ADDITIONAL 10 BOLTS PER*MITS TAKING OFF ROOF; ROOF IS FIBERGLAS, HOOD IS ALUMINUM, ALL OTHER PARTS ARE STEEL, ALL OUTSIDE TRIM INCLUDING BUMPERS ARE STAINLESS STEEL; SEMI-AUTOMATIC FOUR-SPEED TRANSMISSION.





    CAR IS SELF-LEVELING AND ALWAYS RIDES LEVEL REGARDLESS OF PAS*SENGER OR BAGGAGE LOAD; TIRES ARE 180-15 OR 20570 WITH TUBES AND YIELDS APPROXIMATELY 80,000 MILES BEFORE REQUIRING REPLACE*MENT.



    GASOLINE MILEAGE IS APPROXIMATELY 25 MPG. TOP SPEED IS 105 MPH.



    IN AN EMERGENCY, IF ONE OF REAR WHEELS OR TIRES IS DISABLED, CAR CAN BE DRIVEN WITH THREE WHEELS SINCE IT IS SELF-BALANCING.



    INSIDE DIMENSIONS ARE VERY GENEROUS AND COMFORTABLE, FEELS LIKE DRIVING A LIVING-ROOM, ALL SEATS, FLOOR AND ROOF ARE FOAM; ALL PARTS ARE READILY AVAILABLE. CURRENT MILEAGE: 168K. NO ENGINE WORK PERFORMED.



    CITROEN MODELS PRECEDING THE DS-21 KNOWN AS TRACTION AVANT (FRONT WHEEL DRIVE). THIS MODEL MADE FROM 1935 1955. MODELS MADE AFTER DS MODEL DISCONTINUED INCLUDE:



    CX MADE FROM 1975 1989; TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN DS AND NOT AS COMFORTABLE OR ERGONOMICALLY DESIGNED;



    XM MADE FROM 1989 TO PRESENT; EVEN WORSE THAN CX; HAS NO DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER; NOT AS COMFORTABLE; VERY BOXYLOOKING; DESIGNED BY A COMMITTEE THEY DIDNT DO ANYTHING RIGHT.



    IN SUMMARY, THE DS MODEL IS THE BEST CITROEN HAS EVER MADE. MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CITROEN IN U.S. IN THE 1970S WAS ONLY ABOUT 12,000. DETROIT PRODUCES THIS MANY IN ONE DAY.
