Regular readers will know we're wild about the classic Citroen DS, but less keen on the prices being demanded these days for a used one. Not to worry, right now this 1972 Citroen DS 20 in cream is still hovering in the land of 'affordable'.
But there are a few things to consider before you get 'bid happy'. This is the 1967 variation of the DS, although the car was manufactured in 1972, with an upgraded engine from the original – a 1,900cc engine to be precise. Style thankfully intact, that long, streamlined shape guaranteed to turn heads, wherever you go.
So this downside? Well, if you are in the UK, it's worth noting that the car is a French import, so you're talking left-hand drive. That might be an issue if you're not used to that.
But on the plus side, it is tax exempt, has a current MOT and is described as being in 'good condition for her age' with no corrosion or welding. The car has also had new suspension, water pump, coil, battery, handbrake pads and brake pads recently fitted plus lots more bills to show past work. It sounds ready to go.
Right now, the price at auction is £1,000 – cheaper than the other drivable models we've featured in the past.
