What car is this?

This was on the wall in Kurrajong House where I get my taxes done. I spent a bit of time trying to work out what make of car it is. It seems to be a small car. I thought I had it narrowed down to being a right hand drive Peugeot, perhaps a 403, but looking at the photo again, I am full of doubt. I think it is older than 1971.

Well, if it is an older Peugeot, I am sure I have some readers in France who might recognise it.

    1. EC, I think Anon below has nailed it with the make at least.

    It's a Citroen DS, of some unknown exact type. There would still be some of these cult cars on the roads in Australia.

    1. Thanks Anon. Brilliant. I was thinking French but failed to consider Citroen. Further investigation can now begin.

  3. We used to drive 403 Peugoet in PNG in the 60's. This doesn't look familiar them my memory is shot.

    2. Diane, they were a strange car, but quite high quality I seem to recall.

  5. That's the sort of picture I would look at, say "Huh" and never think about it again. I don't have the same interest in knowing.

    1. River, I know enough about cars of that vintage to know what it was without checking, but this one I did not. I need to know before I die!

    1. Dora, being leather, I am sure they would be nice and warm, and wouldn't you like that now.

  7. Oh I wouldn't/don't have a clue as to what it is - just a steering wheel to me :)

    1. Recep, it looked quite foreign and quirky to me and not American. Where to go but France.

  9. The silly steering wheel would suggest that it's a Citroen; possibly a DS (Goddess).

    1. Cro, thanks. I am now thinking it is a Goddess. I will check further.

  10. I am sure my beautiful steady thirty year old Nissan Patrol would give it a run for its money.

    1. Cheryl, after it has been stationary for a few hours and its air suspension has allowed the car to nearly rest on the ground, I think you in your Patrol could drive over it.

  13. I opened up this post to see if I knew the make. What a laugh. I don't even recognise my own car. Twice recently I tried to open other people's cars. To be fair they were red like mine!

    1. Marie, cars used to be quite distinctive, but not now. I have gone to the wrong car, but not tried to open it.

  14. Not a clue on that.

  15. To me the inside of a car look all the same, but my first car in the 60th a Fiat 500 had also the gear at the wheel, so it's difficult to say and very important the driving wheel is on the WRONG side, lol !

    1. My grandmother had one of those in 60s. It was a very strong car.

    2. I just heard the figures yesterday, and 25% of the world think the steering wheel is on the correct side.
