Vive la France – 1973 Citroen GS

September 30, 2015

Seems that lots of interesting French cars (were *any* French cars boring before about 1990?) are popping up for sale recently, and if you want French oddball points, the only thing short of an Acrea Zest that will max those out is a Citroen GS in North America. Citroen always had something of a polarized product line – at one end the spartan 2CV, and at the other end the DS. They tried to fill that gap by taking a page from VW’s playbook, using the platform of their base car and putting a fancy body on it, which gave us the Ami. In the 1960s, they were finally able to pull together plans to produce a proper mid-range sedan that could stand on its own, and didn’t have the sound and feel of their least expensive car. Check out this 1973 Citroen GS, for sale for $2500 in Vancouver, WA.
