Citroën sent out this car to a dealership on the 30th March 1989, even though it was built on the 29th July 1988. This date is indicated by the organisation number nr 4281 written on the corner of the windscreen, the same number also appears on the left side, under the bonnet. The first organisation number appeared on 9 November 1976 and corresponded to one working day for the whole production. This number permits the avoidance of errors when ordering genuine parts.
Citroën Auxerre received the car in April 1989, just one month before the arrival of the new XM. The CX became unsaleable, and so the company registered it to its name and kept it in the basement for 17 years.
The dealer Mr Debusquois contacted me and I discovered it in January 2006, but we did not agree on the price. One year later, a Dutch dealer put it up for sale and then I had to buy it, scared to lose it for good. It still has only 62km on the clock, even if it was on the trailer from Auxerre to Utrecht and then to Castellane.
