Suzuki-san dreamt of a DS since his
high-school days. Now he's got one, and a
rare pre-1967 at that. The car is a 1965
DS19 Pallas, in superb condition, a
relatively recent import from France, which
Suzuki-san acquired four years ago.

The pictures were taken during a French
car meeting in Kurumayama, central Japan,
on October 2006
(see          ). This car was
the only pre-1967 model out of a total of
fourteen DS.
The high-grade Pallas version was introduced in
september 1964 and featured several design and
comfort-related enhancements. Two examples are
illustrated here: the larger front winker stainless
covers (left), and the beautiful wheel covers (above),
fitted up to september 1965 only.
