    I could not resist sharing these pics of the DS23, after her recent renovation. The hydraulics system, electrical components and automatic gearbox have been attended to over the last few years and the repaint and, rubber seals and brightwork have just been completed.

    A recent rip to the country in the Oberon, NSW district was too good a chance to miss for some pics.

    Hope others enjoy them too.

    Great to see a DS23IE Auto on long country runs, proof that they are just as able as other Deesses , despite the bias often shown in Citroen forums against the Borg Warner. Do you have any issues to report such as overheating or unreliability during the trip?. How many kms did you travel all up?
    I use ATF33 transmission fluid, do you as well?

    Bombardment is imminent.

    Wonderful vid.

    I do wonder how such a venture was funded ... that was one serious resto!
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    D Special 1974
    Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    1986 2CV6
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    DS23 1973 Pallas

    This trip was around 300 kms return from home and the a few days later I made a similar trip to Gosford and return. Engine overheating has never been a problem with this car, even on the hottest day but I am careful to keep the re-cored radiator in as good condition as possible. And yes, I believe ATF33 was used in the refill for the B/W at last year's rebuild.

    No unreliability issues to report, unless following one of my earlier "repair" efforts when something was not done properly. I do admit though, that on a really hot day this is not the car of choice. Cabin heat can be pretty oppressive.

    I do concede too that when first released in Australia, the B/W Autos did present their share of problems. Hopefully those issues have been sorted some 40+ years later. These days, I find it a delight to drive on long touring runs, keeping up easily with modern cars and when closer to home, pottering around the shopping centres effortlessly.

    Cheers

    Hello everyone

    it's been a while but here I am. I'd like to dedicate this post to my dear mother Ada who sadly passed away a few months ago. Mum had dementia, which had been developing over the last couple of years. Mum loved the DS and we covered thousands of kms in it together. The highlight being our road trip to Tasmania.

    The family home at Crackow has been sold. It's traditions ended as a new family creates their own memories in the house. My regular trips to see Mum and tinker on the car are sadly over as well. You will recall I repainted the car in the garage a few years ago.

    Anyway, thanks Mum for the memories and for loving me as I am.

    Beautiful photo.
    you were lucky to share a common interest and have those memories.
    I hope I can get my ID looking even close to that.

    This was taken when I left the house at Crackow for the last time. It had been sold and I was collecting the last piece of furniture from the house to take home as a momento... a terrazzo coffe table made for Mum by her father at least 50 yrs ago... an Italian craftsman.

    We don't know each other but that is a superb photograph, as were the earlier ones. Lovely post too.
