It’s the best road-going SM that hasn’t been 100 percent restored by SM World. If and when you’re ready, you can spend $20K-$50K with Jerry to turn it into a show car—but why would you, until you have to? It had a $16K engine rebuild in 2014, which means as long as you get it checked out every 2,000 miles, you’ve got a ways to go before needing any major work.
So what’s the catch?
You don’t want to work on this yourself. Unless you’re ready to ship this car to SM World, your alternatives are Dave Burham in New York, or Denis Foley, who sold it to me. It’s a small world if you want this done right.
You may ask why I'm selling it, especially since the list of reasons to keep it is so long I should pull the Bring a Trailer listing right now.
I don’t want to say goodbye to my Citroën SM—my one true love, my only honest relationship, my mechanical wife—but I must. True love isn’t about money. It’s about time. I’ve already bought her all the gifts. Time? Not so much. She lives in SoCal; I in New York City. I don't have room in lower Manhattan to store her, and salt is bad for 1973 cars. Besides, I’ve been dating a Morgan 3-wheeler for the last four years. This can’t go on. My SM wants to go out, and I can’t take her. Thirty-five years after first seeing her, seven years after we first met, it’s time to go our separate ways.
Interested? Here's the listing on Bring a Trailer, with scans of service records and tons of pictures.
