Portuguese dealership to sell forgotten French collection


A classic car dealer in Portugal is selling a number of historic Citroëns that have spent several years in storage. The group includes a 1923 C2 Torpedo and a 1929 AC4, both of which are priced at €40,000.

Two of the cars are from the 1950s – a '55 11 BL and a '58 2CV that are priced at €20,000 and €10,000 respectively.

The final three Citroëns were all built in the 1970s: a '71 ID21 Break (€20,000), a '73 DS20 (€13,000) and a '77 CX2200 Prestige (€9000).

The set also includes a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1, which has covered 72,000km and is priced at €40,000.

Salesman André Oliveira told C&SC: "This is a blue collar collection that has been gathered throughout the past decade. Most were taken in part exchange against newer cars, such as the C5, C6 and recently the DS5."

"Our Mustang Mach 1 has a shady past that is difficult to define. It's a 1972 model that was first sold new to the government of Maputo, a city in Mozambique. It was sent to Spain the next year on the eve of a popular revolution, and stayed there until 2006 before finding its way to our dealership."

"These cars really are mint."
