This 1973 Citroën SM is finished in metallic green over brown leather and powered by a 3.0-liter Maserati V6 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Equipment includes a hydropneumatic suspension system, self-centering power steering, an AM/FM radio, power windows, and 15″ wheels. The car was previously listed on BaT in May 2021 before being imported to the US in 2021, and subsequent work is said to have included refurbishment of the air conditioning system and installation of a replacement accumulator sphere and coolant hoses. This SM is now offered at no reserve with an owner’s manual, recent service records, spare parts, and a clean California title in the name of the seller’s museum.
The body is said to have been repainted in metallic green under prior ownership and features US-specification headlights and turn signals, a driver-side mirror, stainless-steel sill covers, and rear fender skirts. The front bumper is bent upward and shows blemishes that can be viewed in the gallery.
Steel 15” wheels wear polished stainless-steel covers and are mounted with 205/70 General XP 2000 V4 tires. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes, which are inboard-mounted up front. The car rides on a self-leveling and height-adjustable hydropneumatic suspension with parallel semi-trailing arms up front and trailing arms out back. The main hydraulic accumulator sphere was replaced in 2022.
The cabin features brown leather upholstery with matching door panels and carpets. The suspension height is set with a lever to the left of the driver’s seat, and additional amenities include a push-button AM/FM radio, air conditioning, and power windows. The air conditioning system is said to have been refurbished under current ownership, and wear is visible on the center console and seating surfaces.
The single-spoke steering wheel frames Jaeger instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6,500-rpm redline, and a combination gauge. Auxiliary gauges and a clock are located in the center of the dash. The five-digit odometer shows 39k miles, and true mileage is unknown.
The 3.0-liter V6 was sourced from Maserati, a subsidiary of Citroën at the time, and is equipped with three Weber two-barrel carburetors. An auxiliary shaft drives the hydraulic pump, alternator, and rotary air conditioning compressor. Work performed in preparation for the sale included an oil change as well as installation of replacement coolant hoses.
Power is sent to the front wheels through a five-speed manual transaxle mounted ahead of the engine.
An owner’s manual is included in the sale along with service records under current ownership and spare parts.
