Description:

1970 Citroën AX LEATHER

THIS IS NOT "AND I REPEAT" NOT A REPLICA. IT IS AN ORIGINAL CHAPRON FUEL INJECTED CONVERTIBLE (FIRST YEAR FOR CITROEN FACTORY FUEL INJECTION) THIS CAR IS REGISTERED WITH CHAPRON #9346 AND ALSO REGISTERED WITH THE CONSERVATOIRE IN PARIS. THERE WERE ONLY A VERY FEW 1970 CHAPRON FUEL INJECTED CONVERTIBLES AND HOW MANY ARE LEFT IS UNKNOWN. CERTAINLY THERE ARE NONE HERE IN NORTH AMERICA THAT WE KNOW OF.

THE CAR WAS PURCHASED NEW AT CARRIER MOTORS IN MONTREAL, QUEBEC, IN CANADA, IN 1971. WE HAVE THE ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE. THE ORIGINAL OWNER DROVE THE CAR FOR A PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE PLACING THE CAR IN STORAGE, WHERE IT REMAINED FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

I PURCHASED THE CAR FROM THE ORIGINALOWNER IN 1988 AND AT THAT TIME, A PARTIAL RESTORATION WAS DONE. IN 2011 A VERY COMPLETE AND TOTAL RESTORATION WAS BEGUN. THE CAR WAS TOTALY DISMANTLED TO THE LAST NUT AND BOLT, THE BARE BODY WAS INSTALLED ON A SPECIALLY BUILT ROTISERIE, AND ANY AND ALL DETERIORATED SHEET METAL, WAS REPLACED USING FACTORY ORIGINAL PARTS.

THIS YEAR MARKS THE END OF A SIX YEAR, THOUSANDS OF HOURS AND DOLLARS, INVESTED IN ITS RESTORATION TO FACTORY ORIGINAL SPECIFICATIONS. EVERY NUT AND BOLT HAS BEEN REMOVED, INSPECTED, AND REPLACED WHERE NECESSARY, USING ONLY CITROEN CORRECT FASTNERS, AND PARTS.

THE CAR LEFT THE FACTORY AS A WHITE CAR WITH RED INTERIOR, IT IS NOW A METALLIC RED, WITH NEW TAN LEATHER INTERIOR. ALL CARPETS, TRUNK LINER, CONVERTIBLE TOP, HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH NEW. THE CAR WAS PAINTED, WHEN DIS-ASSEMBLED, AS WAS DONE IN THE FACTORY, AND IS FINISHED WITH AN EXTREMELY HIGH PROFESSIONAL LEVEL OF QUALITY.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED, EVERY AND ALL MECHANICAL ASPECTS OF THE CAR, FROM ENGINE TRANSMISSION SUSPENTION, ETC, HAVE BEEN DISMANTLED, CHECKED, AND REBUILT WHERE NECESSARY, TO ENSURE NEW CAR PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY.

WE HAVE MANY HUNDREDS OF PHOTOGRAPHS, TAKEN ALL THROUGH THE PROCESS OF RESTORATION, AS WELL AS THE BILLS TO SUBSTANTIATE, THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS SPENT, TO BRING THIS VEHICLE TO IT'S CORRECT SPECIFICATIONS AND FACTORY STANDARDS.

THE ONLY MILEAGE THAT THIS CAR HAS SEEN SINCE IT'S COMPLETE RESTORATION (APPROXIMATELY 100 KILOMETERS), IS THAT WHICH WAS DONE TO CHECK IT'S DRIVING CAPABILITY, AND TO SET ALL ADJUSTMENTS, TO THE ORIGINAL FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS.

A PERSONAL INSPECTION IS RECOMMENDED, AND WE ARE AVAILABLE AT A MUTUALLY CONVENIENT TIME, BY CALLING FOR AN APPOINTMENT AT 905 669-2299. UNFORTUNATELY OLD AGE HAS CAUGHT UP WITH ME AND IS DICTATING THE SALE OF THIS TREASURE. IF YOU WANT THE BEST OF THE BEST, OF A RARE AND DESIREABLE CAR THEN YOU SHOULD CERTAINLY GIVE THIS A GOOD HARD LOOK. THANK YOU.
