Years ahead of its time, the Citroen DS series has been a highly regarded classic, if somewhat fragile. I have owned two in my life (a slow learner perhaps?) and eventually some of the quirks got me down. A classic example is in the event of a total brake loss, a warning light comes on in the dash saying “Stop! Brake failure!” The manual doesn’t tell you how.
However, they are still amazing motorcars and a good example is for sale in Bangkok. Well known enthusiast Pierre Jammes is selling his DS 21 daily driver.
“I sell my 1972 DS21. Very good condition, used regularly in Bangkok and for trips upcountry. Air-con, sound system, new Michelin tyres, new water pump, cooling system overhauled etc. 800 K THB. Full maintenance and repair logbook available; e-mail me at [email protected].
