Citroรซn DS19 Chapron Matching numbers and colours, great history, very rare colour combination, top condition car, Chapron certi

Do you know that? That you think: that is a brave choice region when assembling a car, but it works! That is exactly what the first owner of this car did. A Citroรซn DS19 Cabriolet was already a pretty brave choice for someone in the United States. The blue exterior in itself was not very noteworthy, but the interior with Turquoise colored leather is really a very daring choice, a choice that fits perfectly with the wonderfully idiosyncratic character of the car. This car was delivered new in the United States and came to the Netherlands in 1997. The car has been fully restored in the recent past and is in absolute top condition. The DS19 is not only in beautiful condition but also has matching numbers and colors and comes with a Chapron certificate. This concerns an originally delivered Citroรซn DS19 Chapron Cabriolet.
The bodywork is in perfect condition. The sheet metal is nice and thin everywhere and fits neatly everywhere. The convertible top was completely new in 2021 by a Citroรซn specialist and not only looks beautiful but also fits perfectly everywhere. The hood is also easy to operate and is complete with tonneau cover. During the restoration the car was repainted in its original color: Blue Royal. The paint has been sprayed very well and is therefore in top condition. During the last phase of the restoration, many decorative strips were renewed, which partly determine the beautiful appearance of this elegant convertible. The car naturally stands on its original wheels, which are fitted with good tires in the correct sizes and beautiful chrome-plated hubcaps.
At the same time as the hood, the inside of the car was completely reupholstered in the original color scheme. It is commendable that the previous owner dared to provide the car with an interior in the original color supplied. It would have been so much easier to just cover the interior simply and dull with black or beige leather, but that wouldnโ€™t have been the way it should have been. This is as it was intended by the first owner and it is beautiful to see. It also makes this car such a unique overall picture. The work was clearly carried out by experts. The leather is of high quality and processed with a great sense of originality. The result is a very appealing overall picture. The beautiful leather is completed by the beautiful carpets, which have also been completely remade. The instruments and controls are otherwise only in very good condition and completely original. Of course everything functions as you would expect.
The technique has been largely overhauled during the restoration process. The engine and transmission have been overhauled in the past and still function exactly as they should. This is still the original copy and therefore a matching numbers Citroรซn DS. The suspension system was partly overhauled with
new components and there was a new starter engine mounted. The DS19 is a wonderfully driving car that, thanks to the semi-automatic transmission and wonderfully comfortable suspension, is a top touring car.
The restoration and overhaul work is all beautifully documented by means of invoices and a series of photos. The aforementioned Chapron certificate is present including build documents as well as some general information about the car. In short, a beautiful Citroรซn DS19 Chapron in excellent condition and beautiful documentation. French grandeur at its absolute best.
