The Simca 8 was a French car made in the early 1950s, available as a sedan, coupé or cabriolet. It was a Fiat 508C "nuova Balilla" made in France.
It did not have a specialized engine or chassis. The '8' in its name did not stand for an eight-cylinder engine; it had but four cylinders. Over the course of a few years it had some grille changes.
It was followed by the Simca 9.
