Elle a été aussi futuriste pour nous, français, mais pour une fois ce sont eux qui ont du retard !!

On the DVD collectors edition they said this was a 1972 citroen DS-10

DS 10 ? :??: It is a 20, 21 or 23, though I am not sure that they kept these names for the US... (but there is no info about a DS 10 on Google so it is probably not that)

But that's what it is. I'm not kidding.

Could be a typo for DS 19.

The number is equivalent to the engine capacity. Available numbers are 19, 20, 21, and 23.

Were there these new dual headlights used on DS 19 ? As they introduced the bigger engine before the new headlight style, I am not sure that they kept that small engine later.
And I am not sure that there were any DS 19 sold in the USA actually.

No, that's what they said :p But they made a mistake, there is no reference to that model name anywhere...

That just means that the director (or whoever was speaking) got confused about which car was which.

Well, as well as someone owns the red BMW someone can also own this one ;)

JohnnyThunderz DE

2006-12-29 15:06

i somehow hoped someone would own it and in that case rescued it from being scraped perhaps. like some other movie cars.
i wonder what this DS is worth now and what the guy paid for it back then?

I saw this car in 1996.

It was based on a 1972 DSpecial (US Model) - the equivalent of a "19".

The car was fine, but the movie prop elements, like the grey foam rubber at ground level, was disintegrating, and all the platic was discolored from the sun - the car had been sitting outside for 10 years.

USH was planning to sell it to a memorabilia collector in Florida at that time. They had some sense of it's value.

Keen detective work leads me to conclude the Aug 2004 photo is genuine (not a production still from 1986), and the car is now fully restored and living a pampered existence in Europe.

Three reasons:
1. Thatched roof houses are pretty rare in the US
2. There is a clean red DS in the background indicating taken at car show
3. The car is in fully restored condition

We used to own this car, and did restore it several years ago. It was shipped to Holland, and I believe that the collector had it on display at a Citroen dealership for a while - possibly still there. Here are pictures from our website after the restoration:

Nice! Thanks for sharing ... :) It looked better after it's restoration than it did in the movie.

The car was for some time owner by Movie Cars Central in France, then sold somewhere between 2018 and 2019 to another French collector
