Italian at heart: ’73 Citroen SM

73 Citroen SM

Like we said in the previous featured Citroen DS21, if you really want a Citroen, particularly an SM, you have to find the best one. Not the best one you can afford. You can’t have a budget and buy one of these. SM by the way, means Systeme Maserati, referring to the Maserati Merak V-6 nestled in the engine room. Regular reader Alex S. sent us this one and it is one to consider. It has 12-year old black paint which really makes this SM sinister yet very cool. It looks great in the pictures and the listing has many more to review. Read More


French Fried Potato: ’70 Citroen DS21

71 Citroen DS21Before you go thinking we are crazy and what the heck does a Citroen have to do with a potato, here is the scoop. First, we have done 503 of these and we are running low on creativity. Second, the Citroen, a rather glorious one, is in Boise, Idaho. Idaho is known for their potatoes and Citroens are of course, French. We usually avoid featuring a car with poor photos but there was a charming picture of the owner standing next to it obviously very proud of his DS. This one looks great and we have a good feeling about it. Here’s why. Read More


25% Off: ’66 Citroen ID19

Citroen ID19

We really like Citroens so it is no surprise to see one on Mint every now and then. But this one is a bit unusual. It is an ID and not a DS. The ID shared the DS’s body but was less powerful. Although it shared the engine capacity of the DS engine. The ID19 was also more traditional mechanically: it had no power steering and had conventional transmission and clutch instead of the DS’s hydraulically controlled set-up. Initially the basic ID19 was sold on the French market with a price saving of more than 25% against the DS. The ID19 followed the DS19’s example in using a punning name. While “DS” is pronounced in French as “Déesse” (goddess), “ID” is pronounced as “Idée” (idea).

Franco-Italiano: ’72 Citroen SM

Citroen SM

This was some kind of car back in the day. So much so, it won the Motor Trend Car of the Year Award. We know what unique cars Citroens are. That’s exactly why its fans are so passionate. And the SM is the most extreme and its fans the most passionate. We don’t mean extreme in a bad way. In fact, you have to hand it to Citroen for not caring how other car companies did things. They emulated no one. Brake pedals in regular cars? – oui. Brake pedals in Citroens? – non. They have a button shaped like a mushroom to do the job. Read More
