Lot details
Registration No: 6642 EL
Chassis No: 05MC6017

- Appeared at Goodwood Festival of Speed Concours in 2004 and was the subject of magazine feature after magazine feature and became a hit at motorshows all around Europe and Scandanavia

- The base vehicle was a 1976 Citroen CX Pallas which received space age styling from inspiration taken from the wild prototype & custom vehicles of the late 70's and early 80's

- Current ownership since 2006 with documented history

- Indecision was given a 'more modern' twist when relaunched at Goodwood. It was painted satin silver and silver flake with detailing by Melliard. The interior stayed the same, Ox Blood with the white piped swivel seats and the heart shaped double bed in the rear.

Base Vehicle: 1976 Citroen CX 2200
Engine: 2175cc Citroen 4-cylinder
Suspension: Citroen hydropneumatic self-levelling
Interior: Half-rim steering wheel, swivel seats, hear-shaped bed

With its huge wings and sloping roofline, Indecision might look like 'Space Age' but is, in fact, a Citroen CX. Andy let his imagination run wild with this eye-catching project early in his custom car career and its daring bodywork was a massive challege to build.

The original roof and rear bodywork of the Citroen was cut away before Andy constructed a sturdy steel frame to act as the skeleton for the hand-rolled rear panels. The front end was also re-worked, making Indecision look like no other car on the planet.

Adding to the futuristic look of the Citroen's original self-levelling suspension, which makes the car appear to float along the road. An added touch of luxury is the red heart-shaped bed that Andy fitted inside its tapering tail. Indecision was in a private car collection near London for many years but was ruined by a river bursting its banks and filling the car up to the windows with filthy water. Andy refreshed it in 2004 with the currect silver colour scheme for display in Style et Lux concours. Indecision is now in another private collection.
