1959 Simca P60 Aronde Oceane
Relatively unknown outside of France, imca was founded by Fiat in 1934 and eventually became a subsidiary of Chrysler Europe. The Aronde line had been released in late 1955, nd in the fall of 1957 a pair of sporty models joined the ranks, he Plein Ciel coupe and roadster and the Oceane, oth with bodies supplied by Facel of Paris. Fitted with the Flash Special 1,290cc engine, imcas were efficient cars but lacked the performance of other European and American cars of the era. With a price of $3,167, hey were also more expensive than most other cars on the market therefore few were imported.
This Simca was originally purchased new in 1961 from Southeast Motor Co. in Wichita, ansas by a Mr. Joseph Doidge. Then in 1966 Mr. Doidge relocated to Olivehurst, alifornia where the car was driven regularly until 1976 where it was stored in his grandmother’s garage until recently. It is increasingly common to find highly original cars accompanied by original factory documentation and ownership records, his Simca has both. Included with the car are several registration receipts from both Kansas and California, hand notated maintenance booklets, riginal Simca manuals and most remarkably the original sales order from the dealership where it was sold. This rare classic sits in very original and well preserved condition having spent much of its life in storage in the dry California climate. It can be driven and enjoyed as is or restored as desired in the future. Either way, his is a unique opportunity to acquire one of only a few Simcas imported into the US in the early 60s.
