It's Not A Boat: 1923 Citroën ZX Deluxe Drophead

Find this 1923 Citroën ZX Deluxe Drophead here on eBay bidding for $3,550 reserve-not-met located in San Clemente, CA.





From the eBay listing:

Up for grabs is a very rare Citroen B13 393 drophead coupe convertible. This car was imported from Spain to the USA over 50 years ago. It has been stored in a covered garage since it was imported. This car appears to have been custom made in Son Sardino. Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands of Spain……mechanicals by Citroen of France. Please look at photo #2 to see this information. We purchased this car and others from the estate of the famous Citroen collector Don Runnels. The previous owner, Don’s wife. Claims the she and Don drove this around their desert estate about 10 years ago before parking it. We have not tried to start it ….but do know that the motor does turn over. We transported the vehicle on our own open trailer to San Clemente CA and decided to remove most of the fabric from the top. We did save this for patterns for the new top. This car is very complete but does not have the correct hub caps. We do have two which may fit that were given to us at the time of purchase. This is an important car and deserves to be restored. We are rapidly scaling back our collection and sadly this one has to be sold. We did take the wheels off and had them media blasted and powder coated semi gloss black. We also purchased new from Coker tire 5 new tires and tubes and gad them installed. Since we brought the car from the desert to the beach the wood steering wheel deteriorated and will have to be reglued or remade. This car is over 90 years old and is being sold with a current California title on non-op status. We do have a registered pair of 1923 California YOM plates that are available separately for an additional $300.00.

This vehicle is sold as-is where is with no warranties expressed or implied. The new owner is responsible to transport the vehicle. Terms of the sale are cash in person or bank cashiers check. The vehicle will not be released until all funds have been paid in full and clear my bank.

Here are the approximate dimensions of the car:

Wheelbase 94”

Overall length 134”

overall width 55”

Overall height at windshield 63”

Please ask any questions through ebay or call me at 949 492-8702

Thanks for your interest
