The only "Prestige" in Thailand, recently
imported in the country by a rich amateur,
spotted in a Bangkok classic car garage.
  

The "Prestige" exclusive version was made
only on command, by the French body
maker Henri Chapron. Its main
characteristic was the separation between
the front and rear seats, with a glass that
could be raised and lowered by hand, or by
means of a motor (as on this car). Only
about 500 such cars are said to have been
delivered.  
This "Prestige" has a hydraulic gearbox, and it is also the only electronic injection DS in
Thailand, a 1971 DS21 model according to the serial number.  It has been purchased from
the famous Citroen DS dealer Philippe Losson in France.
