The Citroën D series was the sensation of the 1955 Paris Auto Show. With its advanced hydropnuematic suspension and leading edge styling, the D series was an instant success. The D series was made in the standard sedan style and in the wagon style you see here. This style is commonly referred to as the “break” or “safari.” The D series was first produced with a 1.9 liter engine which was increased to 2.3 liters by the time the car ceased production in 1975. The custom paint job on this car was created by a prior owner’s son who was living in Australia as a show of patriotism in the wake of the September 11, 2001 act of terrorism.
