Description:

The early days of the new DS were troubled and the first few years of production left little time or money to develop any new models. Bertoni had always envisaged a drophead version of the DS, but it was old-established coachbuilder Henri Chapron who produced the first DS Décapotable.Citroen, with its own convertible still in mind, refused to sell Chapron a chassis, so he bought a complete car from a local dealer. This first conversion was given quarter lights, the door was lengthened by 10cm (4in) and the gap between it and the standard rear wing filled with a glassfibre panel. Car number two, displayed at the 1958 Paris Salon, dispensed with the quarter light and a vertical chrome strip was used to hide the join between rear wing and the side panel. The car soon acquired a name, La Croisette, and found 25 customers.Citroen eventually recognised the wisdom of sub-contracting what would always be a low-volume model and the Chapron-built cabriolet appeared as a catalogued model at that year’s Paris Salon. From now on Citroen modified and reinforced the platform at the factory before delivering a rolling chassis to Chapron.This is a fabulous, restored example of this highly collectible and coveted model. The gorgeous convertible DS Citroen is one of the most quirky and desirable convertibles ever produced, a timeless classic which oozes class and styleA very original and extremely well cared for early Decapotable which was sold new in Sweden and subsequently owned and maintained for many years by a Marque specialist which is apparent from the condition the car presents in today.PriceP.O.A
