1974 Citroen SMThis rare Citroen SM is an unusual European spec fuel injected model SC. Unlike the US spec SM's, it has full multiport fuel injection and steerable headlights. This particular car has received a thorough mechanical restoration by Citroen specialist John Titus. The body and interior were expertly restored with original type materials. Paint and panel fit is outstanding.
The indicated mileage is not original because the kph speedometer was replaced at some point with an mph unit.
The mechanical restoration included a number of important upgrades aimed at improving the reliability of the car. The cylinders were bored and pistons, bearings, valves, timing chain and seals were renewed with better than OE replacement parts. The exhaust system is stainless steel with ceramic coated headers. The Bosch D Jetronic fuel injection was replaced with fully programmable Megasquirt II fuel injection and ECU with oxygen sensors. Ignition is Pertronix. Starter was replaced with an ND gear reduction starter. These features are mostly invisible, under the hood the car retains its original appearance. The wheels are new French cast aluminum replicas of the original Michelin fiberglass resin wheels.
All of those unusual Citroen hydropneumatic features like adjustable ride height and hydraulic power assists are fully functional. It has R-12 air conditioning that keeps the car comfortable in temps over 110F. This is a delightful car to drive. It retains the heart and style of the Citroen SM while offering the reliability and performance of a modern car.
This is a "gray market" import that is age exempt from federal emissions and safety requirements. The car is registered in the State of New Mexico and titled in the owner's name.
We welcome appointments for inspection of the car by interested buyers or their delegates. The car is located in Albuquerque, just a few miles from I40 and the international airport.
We expect to let this auction run its course, but the owner reserves the right to terminate the auction early.
