1974 Simca 1100 1.1 gas engine from Croatia

Summary:

Undestroyable

Faults:

Front wheel ball joints. Under dimensioned.

General Comments:

It was my first car that was supposed to last for the summer, but at last it ran for 7 years.

Only bad spot was the front wheel ball joints.

Engine underpowered, but always started.

Although almost an old timer, it asks for no service. In seven years, changed only petrol pump and ball joints. Starting on first go even at -15 degrees C.

If the French made a revival of this car, I would buy on sight.

Only remark was the poor brakes, but in those days no servoes were installed.

Made to last forever.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
