1960 Simca Aronde - A Perfect Restoration Candidate

This is the perfect restoration candidate...

Details are slim, but it looks like this car has been stored inside, away from the prying eyes and hands of parts scavengers.

The body looks like it has very little rust.

The seller calls it "This is one of the last straight, untouched and restorable Simca Arondes in the USA." I can't argue that.

This would be a great car to restore and bring to cars shows. It's guaranteed to get a lot of attention.

Located in Dayton, OH, click here to see the Craigslist ad.

A big thanks to Jon for sending me this link!

Not just any Aronde, but the bloody Gucci of Arondes, the Grand Large coupe! The Simca 9 (Aronde), launched in 1951, put Simca on the map, and within 10 years they had become France's largest independent auto maker. Very stylish, reliable, desirable. Nice!
