At risk of hurting Daffodil's feelings I'd still love to have a Series 1 GS :) My dream Citroen...

It would have to be a bright yellow one and preferably a Break :cool:
There hasn't been one come up at auction in the last few years to you specifications Jim but you might like to scan this list of GS sold at auction(with pics)

"The Chain-Make the Next Link" has landed at Tel Aviv, and Ron Arad from Tel-Aviv, kicked off his design journey with a seat from a Rover P6, found in a Chalk Farm Scrapyard, and made a chair with it. The chair is held by a black painted curved steel frame came from a Kee Klamp milking stall built by Gascoignes in Reading since the early 1930’s.

You may have seen the chair copied on "Top Gear". The chair originally sold for £99 back in 1981, but originals now are worth thousands. http://www.countryclassics-cars.com/car/rover-p6-3500s/
Anyone reckon they could make something similar :?:

So the Rover P6 has to make an appearance in this thread and why not go for Avocado and Mango, other combinations are available!

Why would you want other combinations when this one is utterly perfect?

There certainly was some variety of exterior and interior colours and with the P6. On current cars are interiors and more specifically the upholstery on the seats now wall to wall black :?: Don't know...some FCF Trivia Investigation Team suspicious peering may be required to find out :-D

I wondered what sort of dash and interior that Talbot-Lago T14LS from 42nd "Salon de l'automobile" in 1955 would have.

Just on the interesting side of the awful-interesting continuum, without being anything to write home about.

Now we've confirmed the culprit I'll chuck in my two penneth! :-D I love the yellow but they really should have changed the wood, it looks truly 'orrible in my view. Simply fitting the standard black trim instead of that wood looks far nicer to me!!:
