A fair number of CX Diesels, probably between 200 to 300, were imported by several gray-market companies in the late Seventies and early Eighties. Most of these companies, including Trend Imports and Yareb Hydraulics, were based in Southern California. It was obvious to these importers that it would be difficult to comply the Citroen gas engine to California EPA standards. However, due to the more lenient standards for diesel engines, almost no modifications would be needed to comply the CX diesel engine. But, the CX did have to meet the USA DOT standards and those modifications included side beams in the doors, US spec sealed-headlight beams, sidelights, and ugly 5-MPH impact bumpers. The CX diesel is an incredibly robust engine (at one time, the CX Turbo Diesel had the distinction of being the fastest diesel-powered production car in the world), and parts are readily available. Do watch for rust however - Citroen's rust-proofing methods on the earlier CXs are less than laudable.
Imported between 1978 and 1982
Probably between 100 and 150 left on the roads in North America
Expect to pay:
Poor: $1,000 to $2,000
Fair: $2,000 to $4,000
Good: $4,000 to $6,000
Excellent: $6,000 to $9,000

Those front seats are obviously mismatched with the rest of the interior and do not look stock. They look like something off an older Benz.

It says in the auction that they're from a Mercedes.
Sweet car.
