Share on:

High bid of $75,000 at 2018 Motostalgia : Amelia Island. (did not sell)
Simca (Société Industrielle de Mécanique et Carrosserie Automobile) was formed in 1934 in order to build Fiats for the French car market. At the Paris Motor Show in 1948, Simca displayed a Pininfarina-designed prototype. The car was well received and prompted the boss of Simca, Henri Pigozzi, to commercialize it with Facel Metallon tasked with its construction. A year later, it returned in coupe and convertible versions and wearing the Simca-Sport name.

This particular Simca 8 Sport Convertible wearing a design by Pininfarina was sold new in Portugal. It later made its way to Germany and finally to the United States. It was given a restoration several years ago but still holds well in modern times. Power is from an 1100cc 4-cylinder engine fitted with dual carburetors and mated to a four-speed transmission.
