Simca P60

Wednesday 26 August 2009
The P60 Aronde saloons, presented in September 1958, had an all-new, modern-looking body. The estate was also updated with the new front end, but retained the earlier rear. A new coupé joined the range - the Monaco - while a new, inexpensive version of the Elysee, powered by a 1090 cc engine, was added under the name Etoile. A new engine, the famous Rush 1.3 L unit with a five-bearing crankshaft, was fitted to the Arondes beginning from October 1960. A 70 hp version of the engine, called Rush Super, debuted in September 1961 in two models - the Montlhéry Speciale saloon and Monaco Spéciale coupé. A five door P60 station wagon was produced by Chrysler Australia from 1962 to 1964. This model, which was unique to Australia, was based on the four door sedan and featured an extended roof-line and a tail-gate fitted with a wind-down window.
