    Default DS rear reflectors

    Hi

    what's the story with these rear reflectors? Were they only on the early models? Rare? Desirable?

    Thanks again

    Yes, only on the earliest cars. See the fishtail exhaust tip on the green car? That screams "very early".

    The earliest versions had the reflective strip on the side. My 1959 DS19 has the same shape reflectors, but no side strip, so they were gone by then. The fishtail exhaust goes with the single oval shaped aluminium exhaust pipe and by 1959 there were twin round steel pipes.

    Those reflectors were fitted only to DS19s, never ID19s.

    They cannot be fitted to later cars because the shape of the rear guards is different after 1959. Definitely rare, but desirable only if you have a car they fit. And I think I have the only pre-1960 D on the road in the country.
