Simca 1000 Coupe 1967 – SPRZEDANA

Simca 1000 Coupe debiutowała na stoisku Bertone w Genewie w 1962 roku i nikt wówczas nie przypuszczał, że ten piękny, niewielki, sportowy wóz wywodzi się od samochodowego brzydkiego kaczątka w wersji sedan. Za metamorfozę odpowiadał Giorgetto Giugiaro i chociaż baza małego, umieszczonego z tyłu silnika o pojemności 944 cm³ i podstawowa mechanika pozostały niezmienione, to wnętrze, a szczególnie tablica rozdzielcza, były godne Ferrari. Dodano hamulce tarczowe na obu osiach, a moc silnika podniesiona została do 52 KM, co pozwalało na osiągnięcie 140 km/h. Do 1967 roku, kiedy to zastąpiła ją wersja 1200S, wyprodukowanych zostało 10600 sztuk. Wystawiony na aukcji egzemplarz posiada wciąż oryginalne wnętrze, a jego powłoka lakiernicza odświeżona została w 2004 roku. Simca jest w bardzo dobrym stanie i wyceniona została na 10 – 15 tys. euro, a więc około 43- 64 tys. złotych. Licytowana bez ceny minimalnej osiągnęła 11 500 euro.

Looking at the elegant little coupé on Bertone’s stand at the 1962 Geneva Salon, few would have guessed that its progenitor was the boxy, utilitarian Simca 1000 saloon, an automotive ‚ugly duckling’ if ever there was one. Keen to enhance the car’s image, Simca management had commissioned the Italian styling house to produce a sporting variant, the job being given to rising star Giorgetto Giugiaro. Bodies were built at Bertone’s plant in Turin with final assembly undertaken at Simca’s Poissy factory on dedicated production lines. The coupé kept the saloon’s rear-mounted 944cc overhead-valve engine and mechanical underpinnings, though the latter were upgraded to include four-wheel disc brakes, while the interior boasted an array of instruments worthy of a Ferrari. Its engine too had been improved, producing 52bhp (7bhp more than the saloon’s) which was good enough for a top speed of 140km/h (87mph). Most cars were sold in the French market, approximately 10,600 being produced before the model was upgraded in 1967, becoming the ‚1200S’.

First registered in Italy, this particular Simca 1000 had four owners in that country before being sold to the fifth owner in 2005, following which it resided in Greece. The car has been with current owner in Germany since 2014. Repainted in 2004, the original black vinyl interior being retained, the car is described as in generally very good condition. The accompanying history file contains cancelled Greek registration papers, ASI papers, various brochures, sundry restoration invoices, and original owner’s handbooks.
