Citroën SM Restoration Opportunity

Thornley Kelham has two remaining examples of the revolutionary Citroën SM available for complete restoration, at a fixed price and to your chosen specification. The Citroën SM was first launched as a collaboration between Citroën & Maserati, produced from 1970-1975, featuring a futurism-inspired design by Robert Opron, one of the most revered car designers of modern times.

The first example has already found a new owner and restoration is underway in our workshops. Orders for SM2 and SM3 are available subject to contract, and delivery is expected in fifteen to eighteen months’ time from receipt of initial deposit. This is a unique opportunity to own an SM restored to our standards and individually specified to your requirements. SM1 was agreed at a fixed price of £185,000, with SM2 and SM3 pricing available on application.

All Thornley Kelham restored Citroën SM models will be completely stripped down to bare metal and fully prepared before any necessary metal work is carried out, after which the shell and chassis will be sealed and painted. This is followed by a preparation and paint process involving up to sixteen stages including epoxy priming, flatting, priming, and the application of several coats of colour .

Our teams have many decades of experience and skill preparing and painting cars for international concours events, and each SM will be professionally prepared and finished to those standards. Each engine will be completely rebuilt, as will engine bay ancillaries, brakes, suspension and running gear.

Your car will also be finished to your exact specification and can be updated from original as you require, including the addition of modern conveniences such as Bluetooth connectivity.

This is a unique opportunity to own one of these beautiful, ground-breaking icons, restored and finished to Thornley Kelham’s renowned concours standards.
