1973 Citroën DS20 

I found this beautiful time capsule resting in a garage in Gothenburg, Sweden. The previous owner, the late Mr. Hans G Anderson, a well known Citroën enthusiast, rescued the car in 1990 after the first owner, Mr. Carl Anderson, had passed away. Both gentlemen really cared for the car and it has survived in an astonishing condition inside out. Since Hans G was getting older he decided to find a new owner for the car which he called "DaiSy". After weeks of pleasant discussions and adoption interviews I could finally see the car in person, later that day we had an agreement and I started the careful journey back Stockholm through the Swedish landscape.  Chassis no: 4.715.658 (CI 0401 / X24075) Semiautomatic gearbox 84000km Untouched, never restored, rust free. Original paint (AC 084 Ivoire Borely) Original interior (Velours or clair) Looks, feels, sounds, smells and drives almost like new!

[SOLD] 1962 Citroën ID19 Super Confort 

This 1962 ID19, with 71000km within the same family, was ordered new by the previous owners grandfather as a 50 years birthday gift to his daughter in 1962. Special factory order with Aubergine roof to Bleu pacific body and Helenca Bleu interior. The previous owner inherited the car from his aunt in 1986 and has taken good care of the dream machine until I took over. This car still has all its typical Swedish 1962 specifications.

[SOLD] 1968 Citroën DS21 Pallas  

The 1968 model is an ideal combination with the new front and old dashboard etc. Here in the top version with 21 engine, hydraulic gearbox and the generous Pallas equipment. Painted in metallic AC 108b “Gris Palladium” original color. Equipped with options like vinyl roof, Blaupunkt radio and tinted windows. 

The car was restored by a previous owner. A brand new complete leather interior of Italian top quality “Cuir Naturel”, identical to the original was installed and I put a lot of work in this car... Now sold to another Swedish enthusiast.

[SOLD] 1960 Citroën ID19  

This car with chassis number 3062004, painted in AC 605 Bleu Monte Carlo with translucent polyester roof and Jersey Bleu Royal interior, was originally bought 1959 by a "merchant" in Jönköping (Sweden) but sold already 1960 to the Citroën dealer in Kvänum (Sweden) as he retired, he then drove the car until 1988 and kept it for the rest of his life, taking good care of it. When he passed away in 1993 the car was stored in a garage by the family until the previous owner bought it in 2005. When I owned the car a few years ago a careful overhaul was carried out including breaks, suspension, fuel system and so on to get the car ready for the road. The condition of the car is truly amazing, with one continuos user and less than 100.000km over the last half century it is virtually untouched including original Swedish spec. details such as extra mud-flaps, temp indicator, larger rear reflectors as well as original accessories such as a rear window wiper, extra break lights and an over-head storage net, all in a wonderful homogeneous half century patina... Now owned by an enthusiast in Holland.
