CITROEN DS19

4-door saloon.

Revolutionary when it came out - self-levelling hydropneumatic suspension power gearshift, clutch and brakes (with inboard front discs), but tiny brake pedal can be disconverted. Normal 'box available from 1963. Challenging (at the least) to restore. In any case, this brilliant car deserved better than the 1934 long-stroke engine.
