Citroën DS23 break/station/safari

One of the most memorable cars in motoring history is no doubt the Citroën DS. And with a new contributor on this log with the alias ‘La DS Margot’, let me haste to be the first to post a Goddess! Just round the corner of Coolhaven, this beautiful Citroën can be found. I reckon it a DS Pallas, but aren’t quite sure. Anyone?

The details on this car are so nice! Just look at the taillights, the nose, the roof! All the chrome trimming, fancy but not over the top… Really a remarkable car. The Citroën DS was build between 1955 and 1975, and by the looks of it I reckon this an early one? The DS is well-known for its futuristic, aerodynamic body design from Italian designer Bertoni, and for its innovative technology. Best known is its hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension system, now almost stereotypical for Citroën.

    In reply to the 2 posts at photo no. 9: I’ve been looking around a bit for a picture, and check out:

    Citroën DS 1973

    The headlights kinda match. I think the glass cover is just missing, because it is a old car. It could very well be a 1973 imo. Keep in mind, I am no Citroën expert 🙂

    EDIT: hmmm the link does not work everywhere. Oh well, just look at this site

    this is indeed a second series ,the glass is missing. It also could be a ID Station whith a after market interior. but i don’t think it’s a Pallas
