We are delighted to offer this show standard, rare Citroen DS19 Pallas onto the market. The Citroen DS revolutionised the car industry and gained the title of 'The Car of the Twentieth Century' and is the only motor car exposed in the Louvre as a work of art. This beautiful example is the first of all Pallas versions, a very sought-after model that are rarely found in this condition.This matching numbers car was purchased in 2011 by its first UK owner having searched the country looking at several examples that has been subject of restoration work. Having been disappointed looking at many smart looking examples that did not meet expectations in the detail, this classic car enthusiast and collector travelled to Porto to view this particular car. Having had a reported 60,000 euros spent on genuine Citroen parts, plus hundreds of hours of labour, the car was purchased with no hesitation once the Portuguese former owner arrived at a hotel to allow the buyer to inspect the car. This Pallas was presented in show condition, money was transferred and several days later the Citroen was driven 900 faultless miles from Porto to North Yorkshire. From 2011 to 2018 the Pallas had little use, and in 2019 was finally registered in the UK and in the hands of another Yorkshire based collector who used the Pallas occasionally, the most notable trip being down to the Goodwood Revival in 2019.The Pallas was subject of a no expense spared restoration, the body was stripped down and re-painted in its correct colour of Blanc Carrare. The body and paint many years on since the rebuild are first class. The interior was totally re-trimmed in the correct Rouge Carmin Jersey Rhovyline fabric with white leatherette. The car prior to rebuild was said to be in a very sound, solid condition giving an ideal base for a restoration. Around 90% of new original parts by certified professionals and experts of this marque were purchased, and the engine was rebuilt piece by piece, as was the gearbox, clutch, brakes, suspension, and entire hydraulic circuit. Galvanised screws were even used, and the chassis was treated with high quality protection. A premium price was paid for correct original sidelight chrome and rare correct hub caps were sourced at huge expense. New genuine parts included headlamps, rear lights, full stainless steel exhaust, suspension tubes, radiator, water pump, all pipe work and rubbers, rear window shade and much more.This Citroen DS19 is truly outstanding and is without the doubt one of the absolute best in the UK. The car has nicely aged since restoration and today presents superbly in every respect. The underside of the car is pristine, the inner wings and inner arches are outstanding, the panels are perfectly straight, and the paint finish is of a very high standard. The chrome work is excellent, tyres are like new, and the interior is quite simply fantastic and has been trimmed to an extremely high standard at substantial cost. On the road the Pallas cruisers wonderfully and is comfortable at 70mph, the car was driven to us from the last owner's rural North Yorkshire home without hesitation. The hydraulic system works superbly, and the car is an absolute delight to drive. Top class examples are hard to find, and this Pallas is a real collectors piece, a car for the discerning buyer.
