I want to introduce y'all to my Dad's 1962 Citroën ID19 Break. But it's not just your average ID Break, it's probably one of the last surviving DS out of South African production. It's the only one I ever saw and ever heard of, if I'm honest. In the late Fifties, Citroën decided to built a factory in southern Africa as a part of an Development Assistance Project. In reality it wasn't a real factory, it was a abondened school-building near Johannesburg. They assembled the cars out of parts, which were shipped from the british Citroën factory in Slough. Only a few hundred were produced until the early Sixties. This particular Break was sold to a South African National Park, which used it for Safari Tours through the savannah. It's equipped with a special intake-air-filter and had grilled headlights. Unfortunately, one of those headlights disappeared on the passage from Africa to Europe. Another unique feature of this car is the dashboard with the painted woodgrain similar to those of the Slough models. I believe that it's one of the most unique and rare DS left.
