This is a pretty interesting ride. A 1973 Citroen SM. 5 speed transmission. I got it in a package deal with some other cars up in Oregon. Which is why this interior is so nice. Really. really nice. Front and rear seats. door panels. headliner are all beauties. dash top has a split or 2. The wood grain vinyl on the dash is pulled in a few places.  This car has been off the road in storage for years  . The fellow I got it from had a shop in Eugene. regon do some work to try and get  it up and running well again. They put a new rebuilt 1500 buck steering rack in. Rebuilt the brake system. They did a compression check and said all cylinders were good and even and no problems with the leak down numbers. Car smoked very heavily at cold start up so they pulled the heads and had them inspected by a machine shop and had no issues. Their thinking was that cylinders one and six either had collapsed or stuck rings from sitting causing oil loss and smoke. The fellow I got the car thought. and still thinks. it is bad valve guides in those cylinders causing smoke at cold start up. Which after car is started. driven. warmed up does not smoke again until the next col start. So he had the shop the heads back on. new gasket kit on and call it good. I think he was planning on using Marvel Mystery Oil or something like that to try and free the 2 guides. Might work. probably not. I do know when I started it to load onto my trailer. the thing smoked so much I could not see my trailer ahead of me. Birds were dropping from the sky. I heard fog horns. I heard firetrucks. I saw guys in full fire gear with Oxygen tanks crawling in low with fire hoses firing away. Or I thought I did. That smoke does funny stuff to your mind.   Actually after I got up on the trailer. the great smoke storm had floated away and I could see again . And breathe again. But then some guy driving a Prius started throwing bottles and cans at me for mucking up the cold wet Oregon rainfall I was in. But that is another story. The fellow I got the car from claims the 57. 49 or so miles on the odometer are correct. I have no paperwork or history to prove that. so I call it miles unknown. Though looking at the seats. the foot pedals . teering wheel. etc  it may well be  57. 49 original miles. The paint down low looks original. The white roof and hood look more recent. The body has very. very few rust issues. nothing obvious. but a few paint bubbling areas on hood. front headlight surrounds. lower rear quarters behind wheel wells. Excellent chrome. nice glass. The factory radio in the  center console has been replaced with some vintage equalizer with the aftermarket vintage tape deck mounted in the drivers footwell  up high. This car has been off the road in storage for years. It may or may not need the engine bottom end rebuilt. Plan for the worst. hope for the best. It needs new tires.  It needs some hydraulic fluid lines and or fittings replaced up from near the pump as it leaks very much from there. Like emptied the whole system onto my trailer coming down from Oregon. I have some steel lines that came with the car. These are neat cars. This one would not be considered a driver now. But I doubt there are many out there still at this price with as clean. solid. riginal  and nice a  body and interior as this . Let me know if you need more pictures as I can only put 24 on Ebay. I might be able to help with transport as I travel around the West Coast with my truck and trailer. And no problem getting it to Long Beach shippers for 300 bucks if you are an overseas buyer. Citroen has straight clean Oregon title . This thing is neat. If I had half a brain. I would never sell it.
