Classic Car Auctions says:

The quintessential French carriage...
This right-hand drive, South African, top of the range DS23 Pallas has just arrived  in England  and has benefitted from a full new Red Leather interior, complementing the crisp White paintwork. This 23 'Pallas' is fitted with the 2347cc, 115bhp engine, and we understand used to belong to the Chairman of the Citroen DS Owners Club in South Africa and was obviously cherished by him for many years. During this period, the engine was treated to a full rebuild, and, we believe, still performs really well today. Having only covered 72,000 miles, this stunning Citroen has years of life still to offer its new owner. DS' of this quality rarely come on to the market, and therefore this one offers a great opportunity to get behind the distinctive wheel of this great French icon.
