1972 Citroen DS Special, made in France, spent its life in Germany

This car was sold new and used inGermanyas a family daily driver until 2012 when its previous owner moved toFlorida. The car was placed in a container with the rest of the family's belongings for the overseas transfer but was not secured properly, causing front lower valance and rear bumper damage visible on pictures. The front bumped against furniture during rolling wave action and is not damaged much. The rear bumped against the metal door of the Conex and shows more work needed.
