This beautiful Blue d’Orient DS with a Gris d’Argent roof is the top model of the DS line, with a 2.3 liter four-cylinder with 141 hp. This DS has been completely restored to top condition and looks virtually new.
For years, the Citroën DS was mainly known as ‘the pike’, but enthusiasts now call this unique classic by its official model name. That does not alter the fact that this Frenchman deserves his own chapter in every book about classic cars. From the first series with single headlights to the later versions with lighting behind glass: the DS was way ahead of its time, making it still a pleasure to look at and to travel with today. The DS has been a success since its presentation at the Paris Motor Show, on the first day 12,000 orders were written for the car and at the end of the show there were 80,000 signatures.
This 23 Pallas ‘Injection Electronique’ is equipped with a semi-automatic with four gears. So you can shift gears yourself, but without the clutch pedal. This car was delivered new in France in 1972 and was provided with a Dutch license plate twenty years later. The first Dutch owner owned the car for 17 years, the second for 21 years. In 2020 the car was sold to the most recent owner. All documentation shows that the DS has driven a total of 157,966 kilometers since 1972. The engine was overhauled in 2004 and the gearbox was overhauled a few years later. A version with a longer fourth gear was chosen. In 2016, the engine compartment was made new again and in 2018 the exterior was completely restored. Invoices are available, more than €50,000 was invested in this truly fantastic DS in those two years alone.
The Pallas, the most luxurious version, drives very comfortably and well. The hydraulic chassis has great springs and the car shifts very smoothly. All things considered, we are actually talking about a perfect DS here.
The interior is actually in new condition. Nothing is worn or has noticeable signs of wear. Looking further around you you will see beautiful chrome details, a dashboard in a very nice condition and beautiful, soft ‘chamois bouclé’ floor coverings.
The 2.3 liter DX5 engine, equipped with Bosch D-Jetronic injection system, is a pleasure and pleasure to drive. The engine runs and sounds very healthy and the car drives silky smooth, as you would expect from a DS of this class. The maintenance was carried out by specialists. In keeping with the rest of the car, the bottom is also in very good condition. Apart from signs of wear, it can be described as ‘very good’.
You should not miss this DS if you are looking for one of the most comfortable classics available.
