A french car designed by an Italian, Bertone here, this is not uncommon. 

4 Cylinders, 1 liter, 52 HP, this is not a quick one, but wow, what a charm! 



Never seen this one before....

Including Paris. Must not have been popular........

It was very popular, in the 60's in France. But totally forgotten.

The nose, attractively....

looks like a Triumph TR6....

I would have said a Fiat 850 Coupé.

Is this rear engine?

I don't see any grill for airflow...

Yes, I think so.

Looks like a slick little ride. From the Chrysler-Simca era (1970 forward)? Fiat powered?

 By: InDebtButOnTime : May 13th, 2022-17:35

No, Simca powered. From the end 50's early 60's. AFAIK.

... my father drove a Simca Rallye 2 in the old days as I was told!

That was a crazy one!
