Aguttes will host its Centenaire Citroën sale in collaboration with Citroën on 21 July in La Ferté-Vidame during a mammoth three-day event celebrating the marque’s 100th anniversary.
The 71-car entry is headed by a 1968 DS 21 Cabriolet with a guide of €150,000 – 180,000. The car is one of 1,365 ‘factory’ convertibles produced using a DS19/21 base, and was the subject of a major restoration in 1985, at which point the colour was changed to its current shade of metallic blue.
Other open-topped machinery set to cross the block includes a 1938 Traction 11B Cabriolet which emerged from a meticulous restoration in 2003 (estimate €120,000 – 160,000), while a 1963 DS 19 Cabriolet with a well-documented history from new and optioned with a four-speed manual gearbox is also listed at €120,000 – 160,000.
An elegant two-door 1936 Traction 11A Faux Cabriolet carries a pre-sale estimate of €120,000 – 180,000. Discovered in the 1970s in a poor state of repair, the car underwent a multi-year restoration which was rewarded with a first place at the Concours d’Elégance held during the 80th anniversary celebrations of the Traction at La Ferté-Vidame in 2014.
The sale also features a pair of Chapron’s coach built specials; a 1974 DS 23 Lorraine, one of just 20 produced (estimate €80,000 – 150,000), and a 1965 DS 19 Concorde Coupe (estimate €100,000 – 150,000).
Other highlights include a one-of-200 1984 Visa 1000 Pistes, presented in time-warp condition having covered only 1189km from new (estimate €50,000 – 60,000); a comprehensively restored 1974 DS 23 Prestige – the ultimate luxury spec – complete with electrically operated central partition (estimate €45,000 – 65,000); and a 1971 SM prepped for historic rallying (estimate €28,000 – 38,000).
