The Simca story will soon be added to this page (toward end August 2019). Even without the history you can clearly see that somewhere Fiat were involved with Simca.
Simca (Société Industrielle de Mécanique et Carrosserie Automobile; Mechanical and Automotive Body Manufacturing Company) was a French automaker, founded in November 1934 by Fiat and directed from July 1935 to May 1963 by Italian Henri Théodore Pigozzi.Food and Drink
In 1970, Simca became a subsidiary and brand of Chrysler Europe, ending its period as an independent company. The marque disappeared in 1978, when Chrysler divested its European operations to another French automaker, PSA Peugeot Citroën.
PSA replaced the Simca brand with Talbot (which was a British marque for a short period when some models were badged as Simca-Talbots.
During most of its post-war activity, Simca was one of the biggest automobile manufacturers in France. The Simca 1100 was for some time the best-selling car in France, while the Simca 1307 and Simca Horizon won the coveted European Car of the Year title in 1976 and 1978, respectively—these models were badge engineered as products of other marques in some countries. For instance, the Simca 1307 was sold in Britain as the Chrysler Alpine, and the Horizon was also sold under the Chrysler brand.
Simca vehicles were also manufactured in Brazil and in Spain. They were also assembled in Australia, Chile, Colombia and the NetherlandsSupport Our Sponsors
