Citroen C5 3.0 HDi Tourer by Splinternet

Pictures of my much-loved 3.0 HDi C5 Tourer which I am now selling.

For sale. Citroen DS AMBULANCE, (High Roof).

1975 DS Ambulance. I bought this rare DS Ambulance a few years ago with the notion of converting it to a camper. Lack of time and other projects mean that it won't be achievable for me. The car runs great and drives very well. It has had some mechanical work done after I purchased it.I have receipts for parts replaced which include, New battery, altenator,water pump, ignition coil,brake accumulator sphere, main accumulator sphere. This is quite the rare DS, 5 speed, bench seat,comes with spare side door, and original partition, and sink! Price on asking. Serious offers only please.
