1972 Citroën DS 21 Convertible Chapron usine

1972 DS21 Chapron Usine Cabriolet Replica. It is dimensionally and detail correct using thousands of
reference images and documents.
New floors and sills of correct gauge with double jacking points.Lengthened doors and rear bumper.
All bright work in stainless (as is the exhaust). Rewired. All metal except the boot lid which
is fibreglass as per original.
I am a D collector and purchased this car in Vietnam, ound the right coach builder who was factory
trained, ave him a lot of money and returned there twelve times to check on the progress with my
Vietnamese wife's auntie managing the build over eight years. It was an obsession but my heart now
lies elsewhere.
You will see by the pictures the condition and detail. When finished it went to D guru Jason Hantos of
Pallas Motors,NSW,Australia who bought a lot of parts and charged for (though did more) 120 hours making sure
everything was perfect. There are however a few issues that make it less than perfect:
The wheels need to be balanced.
The fuel gauge does not work.
There are four bubbles in the paint.
The rack may be leaking internally.
The engine was rebuilt but is smokey.Maybe the (non-original) carby.
The gearbox shifts like new, ut is a 4 speed.
The door trims need to be fastened securely.
The seats, f buffalo hide, re too hard for a D.
I can take to your mechanic of choice in Australia, eliver to the dock or your transport agent without charge or you can
come over and tour Australia. The weak Australian dollar will also help.
Happy to provide detailed photos if requested.
