    Default newbie with a 1950 Simca 8

    Iím about to buy this 1950 Simca and Iíd like to find anyone who knows about this year of Simca. it is mostly intact but I need to find a few small parts iím sure.

    The previous owner who past away told his wife that it was 1 of 8 built, is there any list of the cars that were built of this era?

    Thank you
    jeff

    Geez, the stuff lurking in sheds!

    Does the tarago come in the deal?

    Obviously quite a rare car. I'm sure it would be well worth restoring.

    I see there is a fair bit of info about them on Google. Good luck with it.

    Great find, a model never sold in Australia. Can always help with engine bearings if needed.

    What a find! How many other classics are lurking around in sheds as "One day I'll get around to restoring that..." and unfortunately they get trashed in the end.

    Good luck with the resto.

    Wow, what a find! Well done. It looks approaching complete and retrievable with some work too.

    Good luck with the restoration. I'm assuming you'll buy it for sure!
