  • (Chrysler-)Simca 1308

    A do have a soft spot for the Chrysler-Simca 1308.

    If fact my family owned a Chrysler-Simca 1307 back in the time and it served us for many travels for about ten years. It was first car that I have nice memorys from my childhood, it had a very remarkable grass-green colour you could not miss it at a big parking lot. It got a sad end: on a slippery road my mother hit a fence and the front side left was almost broken off - so expensive to repair 😭

    This blue example is a childhood survivor, I beleive I got it as a teenie as an exchange from another boy. The model must have been from 1981/1982.

    Three years ago I found at a flea market nearby the next example from 1983 that had lost a lot of his paint and some remains of the "Federation equestre française"-sticker.
    So I decided to try to recreate our family car, however the colour is quite far away, to get closer I would have had to mix colours, not a task a have the right space and skills to do.

    However sadly, the tow hitch on the dark green is broken off, so now the caravan is paired with the lighter green one, even fits better as thy have the same wheels.

        Great Simca's and caravan,

        The childhood survivor models are always nice to see fellow collectors still have. Your custom paint came out looking nice, and even though it is not quite the right color for your family car, it can still bring up the memories for you. As a pair with the caravan they look nice together.
