Effective Anti-Theft Solution - manual transmission, impenetrable dashboard and controls ...
First one is a VISA
It looks like this (at least mine did - this is the one I had in England) Sorry, no inside photos. But I do have this image of where it broke down one day... a very long walk ensued ...
My Dad had #2 and I had #4.
Non self cancelling indicators too. There was one earler version that had a light on the dash to test the lights on the dash (70s GS?)! Miss you Andre...... R
I have had two (or was it three) Citroens
1. Turn signals did not cancel themselves (not connected to the steering column) 2. Steering wheel was progressive (1/2 turn was full turn) 3. Brake pedal had hardly any motion, it was pressure sensitive. 4. Both my two liter CS and my 2.2 liter CX was ve...

They looked mad but you never had to look at them when driving; it was intuitive. Now on many cars you have to look at the screen, reach, tap, slide, curse at Siri, etc.
When were these produced?
80s? Interesting that there are rolling mechanical digital displays yet they didn't go there with the time. They used traditional analog clocks (hooray for that!).
It’s such a shame Citroen lost their way and moved from originals like this. I still think that a modern version of the DS Safari/Wagon is really all you need for 90% of all driving occasions.
I completely agree
Mine served me well for about 10 years but parts became too difficult to obtain. ...
