1971 Citroën D Special, right-hand drive, in the correct but rare colour combination of albatross beige with white roof. This car started life as a low-spec D Special without power steering, but in the 1980s it was fitted with the 2175 cc engine and 5-speed gearbox of a D Super 5 before spending years stored away, so the mileage is only around 98,000. A few years ago it was rescued by a Practical Classics journalist who had it restored and wrote about it in PC on several occasions. It has many original papers and three spare keys, the restoration was well documented including with photos on CD, and the car retains its original Lincolnshire registration.
It is now a very attractive and presentable car with four seat-belts and correct but simple interior trim, original targa (textured vinyl) seating, and no clock or heated rear window. The engine and gearbox changes bring improved performance and economy and relaxed cruising. I bought the car in September 2018 as a ‘stop-gap’ while awaiting restoration of a DS 23 which will soon be ready, so I now want to release the garage space. In my ownership it has had the carburettor expensively overhauled and has just had two brand new (factory-specified) Michelin XAS front tyres fitted, so all five tyres match.
This is an unusual opportunity to acquire a right-hand drive British market D in excellent and largely original condition with known history, MoT certificate to April 2021, and low mileage.
