Citroen Heritage is moving, and rather than haul along its entire car collection, it will offer 65 vehicles and 90 items of automobilia at auction. The sale, the first time the museum has culled its collection at such an event, is being conducted by Leclere-mdv and will be held December 10.

Officially known as The Reserve Collection at The Citroen Conservatoire, Citroen Heritage is part of L’Aventure Peugeot Citroen DS, which is based at Aulnay-sous-Bois, north of Paris. Among the vehicles going to auction are several Sbarro Citroen prototypes, pre-war vehicles and modern classics, L’Aventure officials announced.

The vehicles are expected to sell for between $1,000 and $25,000 each.

Due to the unique nature of this sale, L’Aventure wants to ensure that Citroen collectors regardless of location can take part in the auction, which can be accessed in person, by telephone or online via a website.

The online auction catalog will be available beginning November 20.
