Car description

Check my website. it is my username. nbsp; for more pictures and details and more unusual European cars in inventory - I have Citroen DS. 2CV. Land Rover Defender 90 and 110s. nbsp; Diesel Toyota Landcruiser BJ70 - series convertibles. nbsp; Mercedes G-wagon. Land Rover Tdi engine kits. VW Doka/ Double cab Vanagon diesels. nbsp; and more. zombiemotors. net For those of you who are curious. nbsp; yes. this is a Citroen 'With Hydraulics' -- In addition to going forward and backwards pretty darn well. it goes UP AND DOWN. too! YEs. it has a hand-crank and so you can start the engine by hand if the starter motor quit. Most of the pictures here were taken with the suspension in a raised setting. I have many more pictures available as well as a video of the car running . you must message me. visit my site or call me to receive them. If you have never driven one. nbsp; this car is a blast to drive. 1120cc is not a big engine. nbsp; but it revs up happily to 6500RPM! It does not have a lot of power or torque. but the car is very light and it is fun to rev the engine up and it will get up to 60 in a decent amount of time. nbsp; and will make it up close to 90MPH top speed! This car had the distinction of having the lowest drag coefficient of any production car ever made when it came out - As a result it will ultimately go fast with a small engine. and get very good fuel mileage doing it. Car has 4-wheel disc brakes that are powered by the hydraulic system - No pedal to pump. more of a 'button' your toe tickles to stop the car. 4 wheel independent suspension. Direct rack and pinion un-powered steering feels heavy while parking. This is a very nice original car with low miles (83. 60 - will go up as I use almost every day) - Needs some cosmetic work. nbsp; mainly has poor paint. and there is some rust in the doors and seat covers are torn. Mechanically great. Please read entire ad for all information. This car is for sale locally for $7500 obo - If you would like to make an offer on this car. nbsp; you must call me to discuss. If you have questions. please call me at 503-810-4713. I may not be able to return emails. nbsp; and would prefer to speak on the telephone. I import unusual European vehicles as the daily work of my business. I bought this 1974 Citroen GS about 5 months ago in England. nbsp; I finally arranged to have it shipped recently and picked it up at the docks and brought it home here to Portland. OR. For those of you who do not know. nbsp; this is a very rare car here in the US and never officially imported here. It has a front-mounted flat-4 cylinder air-cooled 1120cc engine. Car has 4 wheel disc brakes. the front pair mounted inboard off of the transmission. Car is very roomy inside for being medium/ small. Truck is HUGE and opening into it is very large - rear bumper lifts up with trunk lid for easy access. Car is right hand drive - is easy to get used to. nbsp; if it bothers you I have a very nice LHD version coming in soon for $11. 00. I also offer import services if you have a different car you would like me to import for you. I have sources in several EU countries and can collect anything and have it here in the US within 3 weeks time. I am bonded. insured and guarantee clear US title and registration for any car I import if you require it. Call me with any questions. This car have very low original miles supported by V5 (UK registration) documents going back into the 1980s - Has not been driven very much in the last 20 years. Engine starts right up and runs great. even when sitting for days. Hydraulic suspension rises quickly and has no problems. 4-speed manual transmission shifts great. All lights work. Has a tow hitch. Headliner in excellent condition. Tires look to be almost new. Clutch feels great. Dash has no cracks. Heater works amazingly great for an air-cooled car. Very comfortable and the active suspension absorbs bums like you would not believe. Now for the PROBLEMS with this car : The big one is the paint. As you can see it does not match on all panels. I think an attempt was made to paint the car to hide some rust in the doors. and now the paint is not all consistent. There is rust in the front doors. in the bottom rear corner mainly. The car suffered a dent to the drivers side rear door during transport across the ocean - In short. the car will need a paint job and some rust repair to be perfect again. SEATS have cloth covers. nbsp; which are torn in several places. Seat covers are available. and I do have a fitted set of grey ones that will be installed on the car when it is sold. Originals are available at several sites online. This is the majority of the problems - all cosmetic in nature. I have crawled around under the car and do not see any rust in the structure itself. nbsp; just doors and some in the sills and a bubbling on the front hood. Rubber/ foam on steering wheel looks a little sun damaged. but not too bad. Radio is present. but not hooked up (or working) On the POSITIVE side. nbsp; car has a new alternator. all instruments work properly. glass is all good. door panels. carpet and headliner all look great and dash is perfect with no cracks. All lights work. engine starts right up. nbsp; runs strong. and does not leak. No smoke. No funny noises. No leaks anywhere. Car is still running original green fluid-LHM. Suspension works perfectly. and powered brakes pull the car up to a stop easily and without hassle or issues. In short. I would drive this car anywhere right now as it sits. Car would need cosmetic help. paint and some rust repair . as well as seat covers. to be perfect. I would trust this car to drive anywhere now though. And this is probably the only one for sale in the USA right now. Or has been in several months. If you have been wanting one of these. this is a great chance to grab one now.
