Introduced in 1951, the Aronde was the first new Simca design, previous models being based on contemporary Fiats. Very American in appearance, the four door saloon rapidly became popular in France and by 1953 over 60,000 Arondes had found eager owners. The name Aronde was chosen because the symbol of the Simca marque was a swallow and the ancient French word for swallow was L' Aronde.
Through its long production life (the last Arondes were built in 1964) there were three types. Cars built from 1951 to 1955 are known as Simca 9 Arondes and have a 1221 cc engine. This engine was introduced in 1950 into the previous model, the Simca 8, production of which finished in 1952. In addition to the four door saloon, a two door estate, van, and two door sports coupe were available.
This Simca 9 was imported to Netherlands in 2011. The new owner completely restored the car. The owner had previously restored two Simca 8 Sports. The car is in perfect condition. The original service book and user manual are still with the car.
