Repeat Offender: 1987 Citroen CX Station Wagon

Today we are counting down the new year by featuring a few repeat offenders, cars that were for sale earlier this year, and are still for sale.  The Citroen (Citroën) CX was a futuristic fastback/wagon built by the crazy Frenchmen at Citroen around the time the company was slowly succumbing to death by a thousand cuts as it was absorbed into the PSA juggernaut.  This next example is about the craziest color you'll ever see on a car.  Find this 1987 Citroen CX Station Wagon offered for $3,950 in Largo, FL via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.


This car was last featured here in early Sept of 2015 for $8k, and the asking price has come down considerably even though the suspension hasn't.  This is probably the only one of the 1.2 million CXs sold between 1974 and 1991 to have a Pepto pink paint job, but that shouldn't stop you from taking a closer look.

  3. Well, I can say for certain that I like this a lot better at $3950 than I did at $8K. In fact, if it is a properly sorted CX, that is a pretty good price.

    The colour, however, is hard for me to get past. Also, as much as I love wagons, I would much rather have a CX sedan (the same holds for the DS wagon vs sedan). This would be just too weird for me to drive (and that is saying something, when you remember that my regular summer car is a 2CV!)

  4. Laugh as you will, but these have possible the most comfortable seats ever in a motor vehicle. Just slap a Mary Kay sticker on the back.

    1. Or maybe Marie Kay?

      But yes, you are correct. Big hydraulic Citroens (CX, DS) have comfort that has to be experienced to be believed. The combination of the seats plus the suspension is sublime.
