This is a genuine 1965 model DS 19 Chapron, the rarest and most collectible classic car you can hope to find! The Chassis Number is 4294*** which is number 731 of 1365 produced.
This beautiful example comes in a rich colour AC 411 Rouge Carmin, which is the original colour, and has only travelled 39,480 Kilometers travelled from new.
This model was first registered in France Paris in 1965, then went to Los Angeles California in 1981 and was registered and put into storage until 1996.
It was brought it to New Zealand in November 1996 and then fully restored it to its present excellent state. It was complied, warranted and registered in February 2002. For the restoration it was stripped to bare metal, repaired as necessary and oven baked painted in its original colour Rouge Carmin. A new hood and carpets were fitted, original Jaeger instrument panel overhauled and completed as per original. It has an original radio and auxiliary long range driving lights.
The condition of this rare classic car is very good with no rust and no welding to the chassis. The LHS Hydraulic system has been converted to LHM with all seals, hoses replaced to be more user friendly.
The car drives well with no rattles, is tight feeling and because of the low kilometres travelled. In fact it feels like a new car! It has a current warrant of fitness, is registered and used on a regular basis.
The car has won numerous awards in New Zealand and features the NZ Classic Car Magazine February 2010 along with details and photos of our collection. The original number plates from France and the USA are available with the car.
