In 1958 Simca updated the Aronde and made the body more modern-looking. The model here is called the Plein Ciel, which means "full sky", because of the generous amount of window area. The bodies were built by the Parisian coachbuilder Facel.
The origins of Simca date back to 1922 when Teodoro Enrico Pigozzi was sent to France to buy scrap metal for the FIAT works. Instead, he settled in France, was appointed FIAT’s main distributor, and began manufacturing cars in 1928.
