This car was built as a left‑hand drive export model at the West Bromwich factory in November 1972, exported to France and sold in Paris in March 1973. The first owner was Monsieur Poyeau, an inspector with the Paris police who used this vehicle for official purposes. It is fitted with air horns under the bonnet, although these have been disconnected. It is understood that Monsieur Poyeau preferred the Rover P6 to the Citroen DS19 which was popular at the time. The car was used for trips to the holiday home in Spain and country cottage in Les Mourandieres, Saint Aubin where it was regularly serviced at a Citroen agency. When the car was approximately ten years old, it was placed in the garage at the country cottage and remained in storage for around fourteen years.
