    Default Looking For Owner of Vedette

    Could anyone please help me trace the whereabouts of Mr Phil McCumisky who had a Simca Vedette for sale at the 2005 french car festival on the 17th of April in Melbourne. I am a peugeot club member and it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could send me Mr McCumisky's contact details or pass on my email address: [email protected]
    The only thing I know is that Mr McCumisky lives in the country not far from Aulbury.
    Thank You,
    Marc Henneron.

    That was probably it.. Do seem to recall something about Ebay. and how many Vedettes would be around anyway?

    I stopped to look at the car as I was passing as it reminded me of a car called the Beaulieu ?? which I remember as a kid . I think they were an american Chrysler but cant recall ever seeing one since

    A Beaulieu is a Vedette model...

    Ford engine, Ford France design, made in the Simca factory they bought from Ford during the time they were owned by Chrysler.

    Ray Bell,

    the yard in Yass has a 2 door station wagon, its only a shell with nothing forward of the bulkhead. Could it be a Vedette??
    Has Vedette type fins and the doors appear to be normal size ie. 4 door size.
    it's on the nature strip one street back from the main drag. Dont know if you have seen it

    I saw that on ebay, it looked like a Chevy Nomad from 1956.

    South Yass or North Yass (North Yass is closer to Melbourne), which side of the highway?

    Broudeau.
    I would have thought later than 56. had similar wrap round front windscreen to Holden FB EK series which is around 1960.
    The car is one street to the right (running parrallel) with the main street (Comur St) when you are travelling towards Melbourne

    Would these 2dr waggons originally have been hearses??
    To me, thatyellow Chev looks like it would have been a funeral car.
    So many projects - so little time.
