Known History

This CitroŽn SM was sold new in 1974, in Long Beach (California), USA, by the Kendon Porsche Audi garage, based in Wilmington. As stated in the service booklet that comes with the car, it was used regularly until 1980. Subsequently, it was discovered by a Dutch collector who had it shipped to his country in 1996, and who hardly ever used the car. Richard Reinders bought it in 2013 and covered just 500km, so the meter now reads 53,100 miles (85,500 km).

This car has the distinction of being in an excellent original condition. The white body is in good used condition. Inside, the mustard velvet seats, in a typical 1970s shade, are barely wrinkled and the carpets have only discrete signs of wear. The oval single-spoke steering wheel, which reflects the shape of the counters, is in good condition. This is a manual transmission version, which is not common on cars sold on the other side of the Atlantic.

Never restored, it is a beautiful example that will surely bring to its new owner, the enviable and unequaled combination of comfort and sportiness that characterized this iconic model.
