Oxford Diecast Citroen DS19 Jonquil Yellow / Silver 1:76 (OO) Scale
The DS19 was manufactured by the French motor company Citroen between 1955 and 1975, during which time nearly 1.5 million were sold worldwide, all but 100,000 being bought by the home market. The DS 19, classed as an executive car, came as a four door saloon, 5-door safari wagon and 2-door convertible. Its unique features included a self-levelling suspension which saw the car visibly rise up when the ignition was switched on. In 1999, a Car of the Century poll recognising the world’s most influential auto designs saw the DS 19 come out in 3rd place. Arguably even more deserving was the Classic & Sports Car magazine accolade, citing the DS19 as the world’s most beautiful car! The four door saloon version decorated in delicate pale yellow and silver colour scheme with silver trim. Registered TLE 427, the interior is moulded in a bright mid blue with black dashboard and steering wheel.
