Citroen SM EFI 1972

It is an early EFI model and rare to get one tax exempt.

The car has always been garaged to protect it from the worst of the British weather, and is only driven when the roads are dry. It is kept fully maintained and serviced by a Citroen specialist.

Overall it is in excellent condition. The only thing that I can fault is minor rust to the tailgate and rear wheel skirts.

I recently had work done to the front end of the car and had the mechanic “fix” the inner headlights so they do not swivel. This is a practical change as they are very technical and intricate, and the benefits of “swivel” headlights do not outweigh the future maintenance issues. And anyway, the car looks best with the headlights set straight ahead at all times rather than cock eyed as the hydraulic system can leave them.

All the usual engine modifications have been carried out. Exhaust valves, injector upgrades and cam chain etc. Everything else on the car has been professionally serviced and maintained.

This car went straight through its MOT end of October 2009 and is tax exempt.

Despite what people may think of these cars, it is 100% reliable and used weekly when the roads are dry. It provides amazing ride comfort, performance and a beautiful sound from the V6 Maserati engine.

This car cruises easily at high speed on the motorway despite being 38 years old, and is arrow straight even under braking.

Recent new brake pads installed and a free set to come with the car. Superb braking and steering supplied from the Diravi system. Hydraulics are perfect, and the car has new tyres that are hardly worn in.

I have lots of receipts and history that were supplied when I purchased the car.
