Busch 48003

Type

Citroën DS19 1955

Very fine model, perhaps the most successful of the many reproductions of DS at 1/87 scale!

There is however a rather big trace of moulding at the level of the front wings, fortunately almost invisible because of the black colour. The door handles are also oddly engraved. See the HD photo.

Adjustable height rear axle!

The DS with non streamlined headlights was produced from 1955 to 1968.

Features (1955 model): four-cylinder in-line engine, 1911 cm³, 55 kW (74 hp) SAE. Tyres front 165 × 400; rear 155 × 400. Top speed 148 km/h.
