The Simca 1000 was a small, Rear-engined, four-door Saloon car manufactured by the France Automaker Simca from 1961 to 1978. The car was inexpensive, and at the time of launch, quite modern, with a brand-new Inline-4 engine. The RR layout was at that time quite popular in small cars. In addition to the rear engine, the fuel tank was located in the rear, behind the rear passenger seat. This gave the car a 35/65 front/rear weight distribution, with an extremely light and nimble front end and a responsive Oversteer on curvy roads. The spare tyre was located vertically in the front luggage compartment, just behind the front bumper. It became a popular car in France, and to some extent also in export markets.[3] In its 17 years of production, almost 2 millions were sold.[4].

Over the course of time, the 1000 (whose name was pronounced "mille" in French) was available in a number of versions featuring different equipment levels and variations of the original Simca Type 315 engine. The low-specification version was sold as Simca 900, and it was later replaced by Simca 4 CV (also marketed as Sim'4), powered by a 0.8 litre unit. On the other end of the range, the 1.1 L version from the larger Simca 1100 was added in 1969 (the Simca 1000 was marketed in the USA as Simca 1118). Finally, the 1.3 L version, used in the biggest Simca, the 1300, made its way to the little 1000 in the early 1970s. Apart from the standard Manual transmission, some versions could be fitted with a three-speed Semi-automatic transmission developed by Ferodo.[3] Quite interestingly, the high-specification versions were offered in the United Kingdom market with a Walnut dashboard decor! In 1977, the model was revised for the last time, gaining the new names of 1005/1006 (depending on the specifications), to put it in line with the newer Simca 1307 and its derivatives. Production stopped in 1978 without a direct replacement.[3]

The Simca-Abarth (1964-66) and Simca 1000 Rallye


In the model's early years, the Italy Car tuning Abarth was offering modified versions of the 1000, and later Simca itself began offering a "Rallye" version, which helped boost the model's popularity in the motorsport community.

  • Simca-Abarth 1150 - 1137 cc - 55 Metric horsepower (40 Kilowatt; 54 Horsepower) 5600 rpm - disk brakes - 11000 French franc
  • Simca-Abarth 1150 S - 1137 cc - 58 PS (43 kW; 57 hp) 5600 rpm - disk brakes
  • Simca-Abarth 1150 SS - 1137 cc - 65 PS (48 kW; 64 hp) 5600 rpm - disk brakes - Option : six speed gear box

The swan song of the Simca 1000 in this series was the Simca 1000 Rallye 3, with a 103 hp (77 kW) engine. Only 1000 were produced during the last year of production of the Simca 1000, 1978.
