Continuing on with our Weekend, and it seems that I’m writing about Restomods, so it will become a standard part of the Weekend Edition. We have already discovered a Classic Cord that is now a Restomod, and then there was this beautiful Chrysler Airstream that has been turned as well. Now lets discover a charmingly beautiful 1964 Citroen DS that has been treated as a blank canvas for the Restomod process.
This was once a 1964 Citroen DS, and it was one of the most outstanding cars of its day. When introduced in 1955, the DS included many standard features that placed it well ahead of its time, including: Front Wheel Drive, Front Disc Brakes, hydropneumatic suspension including an automatic leveling system and variable ground clearance, power steering with a self centering feature, and a fiberglass roof that reduced weight transfer when cornering.
Enter this creation that throws out all of those advances, and replaces them with a new rear wheel drive chassis, a fully automatic transmission, adjustable independent suspension (unfortunately, it’s not hydropneumatic), and a honking LS1 Corvette engine up front. The illusion of a stock Citroen crashes when you take a gander at the most Donkalicious Wheels ever to grace a Citroen.
According to the listing:
One of a Kind Custom that you will not run across anything close to it on the road. A genuine sleeper ( and very fast) Citroen High Performance Street Rod, 400 + horse powered by a New LS1 Corvette crate engine, automatic transmission, Air-cond, full custom roll cage, rear wheel drive, fully adjustable independent suspension too much to list, 700 miles since built at a cost of over $300,000 as a purpose built Show car that would drive and handle on the road better than most. This car is unbelievable up close. It shocks and surprises people when driving it. Has plenty of power to keep up with anything at any speed. Owned by a Collector and Builder of Show Winning Street Rods.
I will give the builder some credit, as it is very well finished right down to the color choice. The interior is very neat, using a single spoke wheel, and a very simple dash. Asking price for this Corvette Power Citroen is $115,000. See the listing here, and tell me what you think about this very custom Citroen, and if you had the cash would you buy it?
