SM Restoration Extraordinaire!

George Klein is wrapping up his 1972 SM restoration in Richmond Hill (north of Toronto)  just in time to show it the Cobble Beach Concours Show in September. What a job George has done – and singlehandedly!

Purchased in April 2015 in Waterloo, Ontario, this SM (serial number SB005755, 2.7L 5-speed) lay in storage partially disassembled for nearly 20 years.  It has just 66,000 miles and the original Michelin XWX tires. 


George just has the turning lights hookup, wiper blades and a few piece of chrome is left to do.  He has put in more than 1000 hours of disassemble and re-assemble time. Using all Citroën parts including and nuts and bolts, it is as original as an SM can be.  Even an original 72 radio and antenna.  All that is missing are new Michelin XWX SM tires.


Not for the faint of heart by any means, you can see a full photo gallery of George’s progress here:

Absolutely astounding George!
