The ID19 as it looked the first time I saw it in Graham Morton's workshop.

He had originally acquired it for himself and had started restoration to the rear end. Lack of time meant it had stood for the best part of a year untouched.

Its bonnet, boot and roof were already in primer and stored on top of the spray booth. Wings and doors were awaiting some repairs, as were the chassis side / sill structures (for which he already had full repair sections).

I could see that for a 43 year old car (particularly a CitroŽn) it was an amazingly sound proposition, and quickly came to an agreement with Graham for its purchase and restoration.

The single-post hoist gave clear access to the whole of one side for the chassis repairs.
