Simca
1960 Simca - Black and white 9 1/2" x 13" ad for this gas-saving car imported by Chrysler. The picture shows a Light-Colored SImca parked next to a gas pump where the attendant, dressed as if he was French, stands holding the gas nozzle and paying no attention to the lady in the Simca. The headline warns that "In Paris a gallon of gas costs 74 cents" which was twice what it was in the U.S.. Bring back the old days. So, in theiry, the French drivers must go twice as far to pay as little as we did and the claim is made in the ad, so many of them drive Simcas. Testing in the U.S. revealed that an average gas mileage for this car was 38.058 which figured out to be less than 1 cent per mile.

Simca
1967 Simca - Black and white 10" x 13 1/2" ad that shows a mother and a father, eight kids and a dog standing in their driveway behind two Simca's, one new and shiny and the other is just a little bit worn. The headline for this ad is that "Some families couldn't swing two cars if it weren't for Simca". The ad says that you could buy a Simca for $1639 per month, or two for $3275. After the price the second point that was most appealing was the 5 year / 50,000 mile warranty. This doesn't include the fact that both of these cars were 4 doors, not 2 like so many of the cars that had a tolerablely low price. The whole things settles down to the bottom headline, "Simca: the tough 5/50 economy car from the Chrysler people".

1967 Simca - Black and white 10" x 14" ad that has a piccture of a mother holding a shopping bag and her two children standing behind a Simca that is supposed to be theirs. The ad headline says that this car is "Warranted for 5 years or 50,000 miles of milk runs, PTA and music lessons". The text mentions that the kind of driving done by a mother "is the hardest there is on a car". But a Simca handles this kind of driving because it is backed by an engine and drive train warranty good for 5 years or 50,000 miles. The car only costs $1639 which, when you filter in the 52 hp, sounds kind of high.
