SIMCA 1000 GLS/Special
The Simca Mille was more than a baby car for a generation of young French families; it was a way of life. The rear-engined saloon boasted four doors, reasonable cabin space, as well as a large front luggage compartment. However, handling was ‘interesting’ due to its rearward weight bias. Later GLS and Special models had additional equipment and were powered by 1.1- and 1.3-litre engines. The improved performance made them easier to live with as a result. These cars suffer from widespread rust but are bulletproof mechanically.
