1965 Citroën DS 19 convertible Palm Beach by Chapron For Sale by Auction

For sale in our forthcoming auction on 4 november 2018, in Paris. French title Chassis n°4294001 Engine n° 0214014615 Chapron Number 7527 - Only 32 examples - Particularly elegant line - Known history The DS 19 "Palm Beach" convertible is one of Henri Chapron's most successful models. It appeared at the end of 1962, and succeeded the "La Croisette" cabriolet, offering 4 real seats, and a hood that allows light in the passenger compartment, especially in the rear part. After the receding trunk of the first models came the protruding rear wings, like the one presented here. Despite a high selling price linked to its artisanal manufacture, in all 32 units were built. Citroën confirmed that chassis 4294001 was delivered as a primer to Chapron on 12 November 1964. In addition, the file entrusted to us by Noëlle Chapron includes the order letter for the car from the Citroën concession at Bd Lefebvre in Paris, on 4 November 1964. The order sheet mentions an electric soft top, the complete exterior trim, an "Amarento Roma" bodywork and a Pullman style black leather interior. Leaving the Chapron workshops on 11 February1965, the car was registered the next day. We then find its trace in the hands of a tax collector from the Poitiers region in 1970, then, in 1990, the father of the current owners, a Citroën agent, acquired it. The latter was to take great care of the car, as evidenced by the many maintenance invoices. The paint was redone in its original colour more than a decade ago, and the leather interior is original. This convertible is in working order, but will require a general overhaul. The gearbox will need to be serviced. The soft top has been redone, and the bodywork still includes all its accessories, as well as the specific wheel covers. Rare, elegant and in a good state of preservation, this Palm Beach is a very desirable car.
