Citroën
CITROEN DS19/20/21/23

4-door 5-seater saloon/estate, 2-door 4-seater drophead coupé.

Famous front-wheel drive 'Goddess' model, with swoopy styling, complex self-levelling hydro-pneumatic independent suspension and power brakes - but ancient four-cylinder engines. Complex but durable, with bolt on skin panels. Some UK (Slough) assembly under names like DW from same essential design. Cavernous estates were Safaris, dropheads (rare, now desirable) were Décapotables. A full generation ahead of their time when new, still advanced when displaced by transverse-engined CX range. Excellent in many ways, infuriating in others - but never dull!
