Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2) based on 313 votes

This is a very special Citroen CX. It is historically significant being such an early example. and in such outstanding condition. It has attracted the attention of Classics Monthly. (7 page article). Classic Car Weekly. (test driven and reviewed by David Simister). and it features on the cover of a brand new hard-backed book by Lance Cole entitled 'Citroen The Complete Story).   The book is available for pre-order from Amazon:

The car comes with a stack of history. a long MOT and a number of months tax.   This is an incredibly reliable car which I use daily so the mileage will increase. but not by a great deal.   Lovely. period rotating drum instruments. Some small electrical niggles. most likely earths need cleaning.

Minor synchro issue between 2nd and 3rd gears. doesn't bother me. but car comes with spare gearbox and new clutch anyway.   The only reason I've not swapped the boxes over myself is because it is my daily car. so I can't have it off the road.   The synchro issue is not bad enough to warrant the job being done.

The reserve is set well below what I paid for it. and a great deal less than it is worth - this is an absolute bargain.

Any inspection extremely welcome.

Low mileage at just about 73. 00 - lots of history dating back to early 80's.   Listed below are all the history that show mileage. reflecting the genuine low mileage:

05/08/04 MOT 67. 09 miles
11/10/12 MOT 68. 35 miles
17/10/13 MOT 71. 02 miles

This is my daily car so the mileage will go up. I have never had a breakdown in the car. and have driven it to the Isle of Wight and back without even thinking about it. The car is advertised elsewhere. so usual conditions apply.   Cash on collection preferred. with a £100 paypal deposit initially unless we agree otherwise.   Loosing my storage for this rare. rust-free CX. so it would be a terrible shame to have to leave it outside.
