In a partnership with Fiat, Simca introduced their new rear-engined 100 sedan in 1961. Facel created a prototype coupe version but it was ultimately rejected by Simca. Instead, Simca turned to Bertone for the solution. In 1962, the Simca 1000 Coupe made its debut at the Geneva Auto Show. It wore a design courtesy of Giorgetto Giugiaro and built by Bertone. The rear-engine, small 1000 Coupe was both sporty and elegant with a level of design and construction rather unexpected for a car in its class. Its price was twice that of the 1000 sedan.
This Simca 1000 Coupe was delivered new to Mr. D. Fogliati of Meyreuil, France in 1967. It left the factory finished in Bleu Louisiane
with an orange cloth and vinyl interior. It was given registration number 3059CP 13 and received its hand-painted plates from a local garage.
The car would remain in Mr. Fogliati's possession until his death, at which time it was sold to a collector in The Netherlands. After a short period of ownership it passed through a Dutch dealer to an American collector, and the Simca was brought to the United States in 2011.
In 2012, the car was shown at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in Carmel Valley, California where it won the FIVA / HVA Most Well Preserved Vehicle Award.
At the time of purchase, the odometer showed fewer than 22,000km from new and today has only covered approximately 300 further kilometers.
