Very nice...
The wooden dashboard was only used on Slough built ID models, and of course the Safaris were also ID's, though they were called just Safari (without ID or DS). The combination of the second type front bumper and the wooden dashboard was only in 1963/64; after that the dashboard was just a mirrored version of the French model.

Edit: But maybe it is better to keep the DS name as to make it easier to find these models ?

No, if they were called Safari without DS, then we should rename them...doesn't matter the pb of finding them...there are many case like that for others makes listed in the site.

Given the 'B' registration, I would say that this is a 1964 car rather than a 1963.

I have recently been made aware that the registration number AYR141B is the same as on the Safari used in The Avengers 'Murdersville'.
But plainly this model has a pale blue or white roof. Does anyone have an explanation for this curious fact?

In Bellu's Toutes les CitroŽn is a picture of this car on a Motor Show. The plate indicate SAFARI S2... does that mean it was the full name of it: CitroŽn Safari S2 or part name of CitroŽn DS Safari S2?

abctelevision wrote Given the 'B' registration, I would say that this is a 1964 car rather than a 1963. Exactly the same car, in fact, as this one: /vehicle_285203-Citroen-DS-Safari-1963.html

nostalgiaguy wrote I was very interested to read these comments.
The car cannot surely be the same as the one shown in episode 7.19 because that has a white roof. However, I agree that they are from the era 1963/64.
Regarding the Safari S2. This was a model introduced in 1965 and made for only a short time at Slough until the factory closed.
All UK made Safaris were just called 'Safari' at the factory and in brochures, never ID or DS Safari as far as I am aware.

nostalgiaguy wrote Does anyone know what colour this car is?
I have seen it listed as black but it looks like a very dark blue to me. As I do not have any reference documents for Slough colours for 1963 / 64 it is difficult to know.
I believe black was delisted from Citroen's range by 1960.

Also I incorrrectly stated that the car in the episode 7.19 had a white roof. It now seems to be a pale blue/grey but I could well be wrong.

At one point Slough offered saloons with the option of black roofs and Safaris with white roofs if so desired. I have also seen that cars could be ordered in any combination of colours from the standard list. Of course, cars could always be supplied in any colour whatsoever at extra cost.

I am surprised that this car from episode 6.07 has been included with the car from episode 7.19.
The registration plates are the same but the car is plainly different having the same colour roof as other body parts. If only staff from the old Slough factory were still around it might be possible to resolve the mystery of the two vehicles!
