SIMCA 1100

3-door saloon, 5-door saloon, estate car.

Simca's answer to the Fiat 128 (although it happened first), with east-west engine, all-torsion-bar springing, front disc brakes, and rack and pinion steering. One of the first cars with hatchback body configuration. Some late ones Chrysler-badged, and vans Dodge-badged to make it more complicated. A nice - if noisy - little car, but it rusts, so don't bother with older specimens.
