    Default Vedettes - Is Glass' Dealers Guide wrong?

    Here's the Vedette listing for the 1968 Dealers Guide...

    Is there anything wrong with the specs? I'm sure the wheel size is wrong...

    Default Dealers Guide Wrong??

    Ray,
    My well thumbed Pocket Edition Service Adjustment Guide for Chrysler - Simca Passenger Cars shows the Vedette wheel/tyre size at 6.50x15"
    The Aronde tyre size, sedan. 5.60x14''. Wagon 5.90x14".

    These guides would have been issued to Chrysler-Simca dealer mechanics.
    They contain all the specs for tuning, service, wheel alignment, electrical and so on.

    Just for the record. The Simca Vedette (Versailles/Regence) 1955-57 had 13" rims as did the Ariane, the Vedette 1958-62 had the 15" rims.

    Some Car This Simca.
