For Sale 1983 Citroen GSA Cottage Break

Registered as historic (tax and MOT exempt)

Speedo reads 279875 kilometres

Imported by myself from Portugal in 2019 and driven back to the UK on what was an epic adventure.
Originally a French market car it has also lived in Holland and has been driven around Europe many times.

Once in the UK the car was taken to the chevronics centre to have it’s mechanical problems rectified. Amongst other things the engine was remove to have all its seals replaced. A new steering rack was fitted and many suspension bushes changed. I have attached a copy of the invoices in the photos. Around £4600 was spent.
A replacement gearbox was fitted at this time as the synchromesh wasn’t working. Unfortunately this gearbox has noisy diff bearings although the synchromesh is lovely.

The car was tuned at Tipton garage on the rolling road and is running nicely.

It has had four new tyres fitted

Apart from the noisy gearbox the car drives well.

Now for the bad part. The bodywork is scruffy and it will require new sill's at the bare minimum.

I have purchased two new sills, outer and inner.
There are also two nos rear doors, nos tailgate and a nos under tray. A good used bonnet and used front door.
These panels owe me around £1200. They can go with the car for an extra £1000

This is a car you need to view and make sure you are happy with. It does drive but the sills would not pass and MOT. I have been using it but not a lot.

The cottage is the luxury version of the Gsa break made only for the french market. Production was limited to 1, 850 vehicles.

The car is located in Bridport. Dorset. Uk.
