    um, what is this car, where did it come from? all I know is it's tiny, I don't know what it is and it has a 57hp ~1290cc engine and weighs 2000 lbs.
    one of the guys I work with just got one (family death) that's been parked for about 10 years. just wondering if any of you know any history on these cars. they don't seem to be at all common in any of the auto enthusiast circles I've been involved in.

  3. We had one in the late 50s. As I recall, it was a good runner. So far as I know, it eas the only one I ever saw.

    Looks a whole lot like a Sunbeam. Neat car.

    I thought he should put a rotary engine in and set it up to autocross...haha. but he doesn't have a whole lot of time to tear into it or restore it or anything.
     
  11. Thats a beauty. I was thinking of the more common four door Simca Aronde.
