    Also on Gumtree there is this chappy in SA (claimed one owner):
    1972 Citroen GS Sedan | Cars, Vans & Utes | Gumtree Australia Unley Area - Parkside

    Pardon my lack of knowledge, does the Gumtree car have later model seats, the head rests look a bit unusual for '72?
    I might go check this one out...he claims original 35000kms ...must see what a GS with such low kms looks like!

    As usual, any cars viewed I would welcome the details for the Register. Just completed another minor update to it.
    I know whoever did it probably had a perfectly good reason, but why would you want or need to respray the rims on a car that had only done 35000ks (for to me they appear to now be silver)?

    As far as I understand the car was not kept in dry storage for some time...maybe surface rust started appearing...

    The yellow GS Pallas will be back on the road soon. Finally got some NOS lower arm bushes from Italy which came in a parcel covered in Australian Customs and Quarantine masking tape and a nice note from them. What did they think I was getting - heroin?

    Also managed to find a correct period mirror for the Convertisseur which wasn't easy.

    Chaps, if you're chasing a new black steering wheel, Daniel Engelhardt of Franzosische Klassiker has got reproductions made up. You just need to send off your old one in exchange.

    I have way too many GS's for one person to enjoy. If anyone out there is hankering for one, drop me a line.

    Donat,

    295 Broadway, Glebe (on the build plate) was an old pub. Probably explains bad Citroen build quality...

    Hi Bertie,

    That is Donat's, who started this thread! I understand it is spoken for now...and yes, a great buy for a low mileage and very honest car.

    Mr Leconte, due to the fact I'd mentioned other GS's, the Convertisseur has been sold.

    The 1015's on the driveway with a black eye as the glass on the LHS headlight has been smashed. Ugh. A new Marchal replacement is on its way from Deutschland. I have spare glass but it would look like shite on a new unit so I've ordered the whole shebang.

    I've done 500km in the ID 19 in 3 months, so I need to get my priorities right. When I mentioned this to my Mrs, she said "you should be selling the ID - you hardly ever drive it." That's why the Mrs is my Mrs and not SWMBO.

    hi Donat
    love the yellow on the GS, i have to decide on the interior of the resto project, colour texture of fabric etc. current colour is blue and similar to the CX i think. but this will be hard to find so may change my selection. can you please put up a few more photos of the interior ?

    Donat... Having worked as a Customs Officer and having done a stint ion the international mail centre I can tell you that they don't assume a car part or anything else is what it is stated...without the checks we would have no control of plant material,drugs and other illegal activitys... Customs and Quarantine are there doing their job to protect this country...
    By law we were required to open a certain percentage...you certainly cannot open everything and the process is strictly controlled.
    Containers are another story and we were lucky to check 2% of all containers so intelligence gathering plays a big part...still...it's a losing battle

    I love these car to bits, had two and it was love hate .
    Some things stupid and difficult to work on and could have been made simpler , better solutions.

    They were beautiful to drive and for me beautiful to look at, some aspects very thoughtful.

    First time outside for a while. A quick wash to get off the dust, then back in the other way round so that I can finish off the other side.

    Great colour, glimpse of the interior suggests a great match.

    Citronut, there have been relatively few GS's in Australia with the factory fitted sunroof, but I don't know if the distributors brought them in as part of the normal shipment or if they were all special orders and/or overseas deliveries.
    In Brisbane I have seen at least one factory fitted sunroof Club with a compliance plate, another was an early Pallas with no plate (now crushed), another a 79 Pallas that was a Paris delivery. I test drove an orange Club in the early 90's but didn't buy it because of noisy synchros (never seen it since).
    If you're thinking of buying one, sit in it first - the factory sunroof takes a good couple of centimetres off the available headroom front and rear.

    No- not a GSA. The rear configuration is different. The easiest give-away is the stainless bumper. The GSA had plastic ones.






    Edit: Sorry- this was in answer to Sparkey's question:
    Looking really good Andrew. So it is a GSA?
