Known as the Decapotable, almost certainly a Henri Chapron version. Could be a DS 19 or a 21.

I was lucky enough to drive one briefly a few years ago.
Lovely car to drive but a tiny back seat and everything aft of the windscreen was handmade and uniquely made to measure on each car!

Most DS convertibles were built by Chapron, indeed. So is this one, but it was sold by CitroŽn. Therefore this model (recognisable by the shape of the boot lid) was known as 'Usine'; the 'official' Chapron models had a bigger boot lid. By the new bumper and the old, claphand wipers this car dates from 1963 or 1964. I think the names Cabriolet and Dťcapotable were both used, even Cabriolet Dťcapotable together... but Cabriolet is most common (and was used by CitroŽn in their publications).
The car shown here seems to have US front indicators, but US models didn't have the 'boomerang' rear indicators (visible just behind the folded down roof)... Probably a private import to the USA.
