Once a common sight on UK roads, the humble Citroen AX has all but disappeared, particularly in this ultra-rare Phase 1 form. This remarkable AX 11RE has covered just 39,280 miles from new with one lady owner! Finished in original Venetian Red, (Code EJX), the paintwork boasts a wonderful deep shine and the super-lightweight panels are incredibly straight and ding free, very rare for a small French car! A few touched in marks do not detract from the overall impressive appearance. All trim sections are in excellent order and originality seekers will be pleased to see supplying dealer number plates and all glass sections original etched Citroen fit. A lovely slice of 1980s gallic charm!

A true delight of 1980s nostalgia! The delightfully boxy fascia with and sparse equipment levels are exactly what this modest supermini is about, simple economical motoring. The very clean grey fabric upholstery is in superb order with no rips or tears and the typically French seats are surprisingly comfortable with only slight loosening of the lightweight material on the drivers seat. All trim sections, door cards and fascia are immaculate and all functions and controls operate as they should. The headlining is fully intact with some very light marks. Low mileage credentials are displayed in the quirky one spoke steering wheel showing prominent veins and no wear, as does the gear knob. Tyre pressure stickers remain affixed inside the spotless drivers door aperture. The immaculate boot area contains the ultra-rare and usually misplaced sunroof bag as well as factory stickers and the original jack and brace. A delightfully unspoilt interior.

This early AX 11RE is fitted with the famous PSA TU series 1124cc engine with Magneti Marelli carburettor producing 59hp at 6200rpm. Weighing just 660kg,15kg heavier than the 3-door variant, this featherweight is surprisingly lively with a top speed of 104mph and 0-60mph in 11.4 seconds. The very clean engine bay will delight originality seekers with all factory stickers, plates and panel stampings intact. Even the painted colour code is clearly visible. The four-speed manual transmission is light and precise.

The factory fitted 13 pressed steel wheels have the correct original full hubcaps which remain in very good order. 155/70 R13 tyres have plenty of tread and are in good condition. The dual-circuit X configuration servo assisted brakes provide safe assured stopping power.

Any Citroen AX is a very rare sight on todays roads, even more so the early phase one entry levels cars in 5-door form. Registered new on 26th January 1989 by Citroen Main Dealer, Moss Autos of London, this preserved example has covered a fully verified 39,280 miles from new with one owner. Miss Helene Zervos purchased this example brand new and has used the car regularly but sparingly for the last 30 years with strict garage storage when not in use. The difficult decision to part with her red rocket is born from her advancing years and having given up driving. The history file consists of the full original Citroen document wallet containing all handbooks, guides and point of sale literature as well as the full service book with 19 stamps. A file of Citroen main dealer and independent invoices as well as every MOT certificate dating back to the very first in 1992 completes the history file along with both sets of keys and dealer fobs. Far rarer than much of the worlds motoring exotica, this delightfully nostalgic little AX cannot fail to put a smile on your face and is the perfect entry into low-cost and fun classic car ownership.

MOT September 2020, HPI Clear.
