Châssis n° 4376057
- Superb original condition
- Ex Lorne Greene, Hollywood actor
- Rare colour combination
This particular car comes from California, Hollywood to be more precise, where it was acquired by the main actor and comedian Lorne Greene of the famous TV series "Bonanza" (US papers on his name). The country's dry climate, the way this automobile was respectfully used and its meticulous storage have led this car to go through decades without ageing . It is presented in an exceptional condition since new, both the grey-green metallic paint and dark green leather interior are original and it also possesses a splendid optional Jaeger dashboard and a Weber carburettor. The seats are equipped with headrests and armrests towards the front. The windows are tinted green, the gearbox is semi-automatic; 1967 is also the first year when Citroen used the LHM green liquid and the last year that the DS had fixed headlights. The car was imported by a renowned Dutch dealer who had it restored by a specialist of this model (invoices), before putting it up for auction with the Poulain & Le Fur auction house. The car is acquired then by its current owner in December 2004 under the hammer of auctioneer Poulain, where it had achieved a world record at more than €85,000. Since then, it has travelled only 1,800 km and consequently has a total mileage of 12,900km. A Citroen certificate of authentication confirms the vehicle's originality and a small plate in the right front wing carries the Chapron's bodywork number. Having never had an accident and with all the right numbers, it is unique opportunity to acquire one of the best convertible DS out there in such exceptional condition of preservation.
