SIMCA 1301/1501

4-door saloon/estate car.

Last independently-designed, conventional Simca, effectively a long-nose, long-tail version of the 1300/1500 first seen in 1963. Estate car was a particularly practical model, but since these cars were the Hillman Minxes of France (there was a corporate connection, after all!), no-one ever got excited about them. Most have gone, today, for they rusted badly if neglected.
