HISTORY: The saloon Club version was very short-lived and therefore rare, and so I had never been able to find this model. That is until my friend Eric Navarro in the Var decided to sell his car on the internet. He hadn’t considered that I might be interested, due to some blemishes on the bodywork, even though the car otherwise met the criteria of the museum. Before Eric, there had only been one owner, a baker from the centre of Valence. The car had been ordered new from the Minodier garage of Valence, which had also supplied the famous DS19 no.32, 14 years earlier.
During the restoration of the cathedral of Valence, the road between the the bakery and the baker’s house had been cut off. It was necessary to reverse into the house. The elderly lady had found it difficult to perform this manoeuvre. It was decided to store the car until its sale in 2005.
