French style: 1960 Simca Aronde Océane


We have yet published another Simca, but then it was a Plein Ciel. This time is a rare Océane, much scarcer than the first one.


This car is now in the UK but it came from Oregon, which is not a dry country at all; however this car, although in need of a total restoration, looks not so wet (and rusty). Interiors, like the rest of the car, needs to be completely redone but at least everything is there, and that really matters.


The red-headed engine could be the “Rush Super” unit which was had a little more grunt than the stock one. Don’t expect thrills from this unit which is rated at no more than 62 h.p. but this car is made not for drag racing but to be driven slowly on a road near the sea. Find it for sale at £4,500 (today $7,600) here in Turnbridge Wells, UK.
