ID19P from 1961.8974KM.
Colour: Absinthe AC512.
MODEL: The ID19 was launched in May 1957, 18 months after the DS.
The first ID model was distinguished from the DS by:
-Smaller wheel trims that do not cover the whole rim.
-The bumpers and trim items in aluminium.
-The roof in reinforced plastic resin (translucent).
-A larger steering wheel, as the steering was not power-assisted (which became an option from March 1963).
-Absence of vents on the front wings, as found on the DS from 1960 to 1962.
Here is the ‘Confort’ version, more luxurious than the ‘Luxe’ version. The engine is 1911cc, 66Ch (about 62bhp). 4 speed gearbox, first gear not synchronized. The first model year with a 12 volt electrical system. Unassisted brakes (last year of this). Rear screen of Plexiglass.
Price at the time: 11,200 Francs.
