One family car: 1951 Simca 8 Sport Cabriolet



This car, never restored from the moment it left the dealer, makes us understand some things that are often ignored.


Do you know when, in some advertisements, classic cars of 50 or 60 years old are presented in fantastic conditions that are said to be “preserved”, “never restored” and so on? Well, most of the time they are inaccuracies, sometimes written naively and sometimes written lying, as it is well known that the ato in these have been “touched up” at least once.


Here is a seventy year old car that has never been restored: it is certainly in good condition as it does not look rusty; it’s also complete and looks extremely original, but it’s anything but shiny, both inside and out: don’t get us wrong anyway, we like it exactly for this reason. It was in the same family from 1951 to 2008, it has some defects, some parts such as fuel tank and rear shock absorbers have been replaced , the car starts and runs. The car will be auctioned in Paris by Artcurial next February, with an estimate ranging from € 40,000 to € 60,000 (today $ 44,000-66,000).
