1972 Citroen SM V6, 2.8 carb. from North America
The most beautiful car ever made
Spheres need periodic replacing.
Back up light switch replaced.
Exhaust system replacement.
Radio not the best.
Power windows need attention, sometimes the plastic gear breaks in half, difficult to replace.
Spheres are replaceable easily.
Break sphere requires removal of left front fender.
This car is the most technically sophisticated car ever made in the 1970's.
Very reliable if you stay on top of the maintenance.
A ride like no other car.
A rolling museum piece.
Always a car show winner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The Citroen SM was a beautiful failure from the beginning. A person has to be obsessed and have more money than sense to waste their time and effort in order to maintain this ill-conceived and poorly executed luxo-cruiser. Good luck to all who have them, you'd probably also enjoy a Fiat 124 Spider and an MGB to shed tears over. Maybe if you search really well you could find a Cadillac Catera that you could try to keep up.
