Citroen DS19 Prestige 1959, LHD, Carburettor, Manual
I am delighted to be able to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy my 1959 Chapron DS19 Prestige as displayed at 2005 DS 50th expo in Paris in Oct. The car is in excellent condition inside and out and is 1 of about 6 Prestige car built that year being the introduction year for that model. It is possible that this is the Prototype car due to a number of unusual features: 12-volt but twin coils Prestige script on the dash and boot 4 x buttons in the rear 1/4 trim. etc. We have now traced all of the owners for this car and now know that this was the French Military Attache car in Rome. It was also the car that was blessed by Pope John XXIII. Since then the car has been through a number of ownerships and had the front wings and roof replaced. We have located the original Military Bonnet and the first Parisian registration number when it became a civilian car in 1966. full details please email or call. This car has now been fully UK registered MOT'd and serviced. The car is featured on several Websites and is the Oldest known Prestige in existence.
