1963 Abarth Simca 1300
French registration title Presented at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show at the same time as the wise Bertone Coupé, the Simca Abarth 1300 was a genuine racer built on the basis of the already promising Simca 1000; with a 13 cm shorter wheelbase, an aluminium body and a 125 bhp bialbero engine: the new French-Italian weapon quickly made its mark Chrysler took over the Simca brand in 1963, and it seems that a few examples, called Abarths, were delivered without engines, then fitted with Rallye 2 engines, sometimes in Ralllye 3 configuration. This could be the case of the car illustrated on these pages, chassis 070, which may have been driven by Lyon driver Pierre Maublanc in the Tour de Corse (to be confirmed) Easily recognisable by its Abarth Due Mila front end (2-litre engine, an even rarer model), our car was owned by the same Parisian enthusiast between 1967 and the early 2000s, before changing hands Restored, it took part in numerous historic events, including the Targa Florio and the Tour Auto (Regularity, 2016 edition); today, it is in excellent condition, ready to take part in the finest events, still equipped with its original magnesium wheels and a very exclusive 80-litre central fuel tank A legendary car that is extremely rare on the market, the Abarth Simca 1300 is also a guaranteed entry ticket for the Tour Auto or Le Mans Classic, where it shone during its heyday; easy to use with its Simca components, and fantastic to drive for those who like rear engine cars, it will appeal to the most demanding sports car enthusiast, as well as the gentleman driver looking for that rare gem
