Simply Simca: 1971 1204 3 door
Simcas in the U.S. are pretty rare. Though critically acclaimed by the motoring press, they were a huge flop in America. The cars themselves were pretty interesting, with 62hp four cylinder, front wheel drive powerplants. Lots of headroom and a quirky French ergonomics. They were sold by Chrysler dealerships in the early 1970's. What could go wrong with that plan?!
This car was relatively solid for a Simca in The Rust Belt. The seller has the right idea...this would be an interesting car for the 24 Hours of Lemons (which is essentially an enduro for sub-$500 cars). Or a true Francophile could outfit the car to mimic one of the factory 1204 Rally cars. At the $300 asking price, you will have more money tied up in your time and effort to get her home.
