History of this car
This SM, chassis 00SB0388, is an early build car manufactured in November 1970 and supplied new to France, being first registered there in April 1971.
By 2016 our SM was in the Netherlands from where the current owner sourced this superb example from the famous Houtkamp Collection and imported it into the UK.
With a good history going back to the 1990s, the diligent current custodian of this SM has invested in a programme of upgrades with Citroen Maserati specialist Brodie Engineering to make the car a turn key, reliable and usable town and country vehicle.
Upgrades include the all important solid exhaust valve conversion, larger high output alternator, uprated battery, rotary compressor air conditioning unit, uprated cooling fans, electronic ignition and a high end stereo with Bluetooth. Additional recent works include retrimming of the seats and door cards in leather and fitting 4 new Michelin tyres; over £18,000 of current receipts accompany the car.
Our car is showing a recorded 95,000 klms or about 60,000 miles which is believed but not warranted as being the genuine mileage from new.
The icing on the cake is the neat cherished registration which accompanies the vehicle.
This makes an excellent first impression with straight sides and good panel fit. Our SM wears an older repaint in the original blanc meije (code AC088) colour. There are a few age related blemishes but this is a rust free car including the chassis. The glass is all good, the stainless trim all complete and in very good condition.
The technical condition of this example is why you should buy it.
It drives brilliantly with a powerful quiet engine in perfect tune, excellent gearbox and has benefitted not only from all the available upgrades but a lot of careful servicing. And it shows!

The kid leather retrim is a feature of our car, with the correct pleating so often lost when these cars are reupholstered. It is of course superbly comfortable and our SM is fitted with a Blaupunkt Coburg stereo with Bluetooth connectivity. That and the ice cold air conditioning enables you to enjoy one of the best designed interiors of any car.
Good clean condition, toolkit and spare wheel are all in place.
This car has all the mods as some examples marketed at £80k. It drives without fault and we strongly recommend it!
Supplied with a tailored indoor car cover.
