Extremely rare and important Series 1 Citroen CX 2200 first registered in 1975. The bodywork and underside are in great condition with only a few very small marks but absolutely no rust anywhere. Extensive service history and provenance that includes its original French owners manual.
Before import to Finland this was the third oldest Citroen CX in the UK and was believed to be the oldest roadworthy example. Built in 1975, the car spent the first fourteen years of its life in France (lots of original french receipts).
Featured as the cover car of “CITROEN, The Complete Story” by Lance Cole, also the most photographed CX in the book. In many feature articles in UK classic car magazines, for example a seven page feature in Classics Monthly.
Finnish Historic Vehicle Registration. First registered in France, imported to UK in 1991 and to Finland in 2014. Two owners in France, two in Britain and one in Finland.
The engine runs very smoothly with the manual choke being needed only for a very short time on a cold start. The interior is in outstanding condition as well with no fading to the wonderfully period upholstery and a very clean and unmarked headliner. There is a small crack in the driver’s arm rest. Period map light on the passenger side and a very unusual and rare dash tray. Front and rear fog lights and a rear screen louvre. Rear early items include the twin wiper and full wheel caps. Front electric windows work smoothly and quickly from the switches on the centre console. A full set of correct rear seat belts has been fitted to allow the safe carrying of three rear passengers, or two can share the pull-down centre armrest.
The suspension works perfectly, rising quickly and carrying you in supreme comfort over even the roughest roads. Newish set of five Michelin tyres complete the magic carpet ride experience.
