1974 Citroen D Special


Welcome to IMS Classics, we are very pleased to offer for sale

1974 Citroen D Special, in very good condition,

Built between 1970 and 1975 the D Special was an entry level DS which had a standard 4spd gearbox and a clutch pedal.

In late 1967 for the 1968 model year, the DS and ID was again restyled by Robert Opron, this version had a more streamlined headlamp design, giving the car a notably shark-like appearance.

This design had four headlights under a smooth glass canopy and the inner set swivelled with the steering wheel. This allowed the driver to see “around” turns. The directional headlamps were linked to the wheels by cable. The outboard low-beam headlamps are self-levelling in response to pitching caused by acceleration and braking

Citroen’s famous Hydropneumatic suspension system, each wheel is connected, to a hydraulic suspension unit containing nitrogen and Oil. The motion of the wheels translated to a motion of the piston, which acted on the oil in the nitrogen cushion and provided the spring effect.

If the car was too low, the height corrector introduce fluid; if it was too high, it released fluid back to the reservoir, and a constant ride height was maintained. A control in the cabin allowed the driver to select five heights: normal height, two higher-riding heights for poor terrain, and two extreme positions for changing wheels.
