Description

Monaco registration
Chassis n° 701001

- No reserve
- Older sympathetic restoration
- Rare and interesting model
- Elegant styling

A new version of the Simca-Sport was presented at the 1952 Paris Motor Show. For this model, it was not Pininfarina who had been responsible for the design but the design team at Facel, who had created the car in collaboration with Simca. At the 1954 Motor Show, the Simca-Sport took the name Coupé de Ville, in a slightly simplified version that was more affordable.

It is this rare version that is offered here. Presented in anthracite grey and sporting wire wheels, this coupé was restored some fifteen years ago and remains in correct form. The beige velours interior has been refurbished, the roof lining is not to original specification, but the dashboard displays all the accessories. It also has a floor-mounted gear lever with pearl coloured knob the same as the tips of the window handle
