The Simca Vedette was Simca's top model during the late fifties; a big upper middle-class car based on Ford France's Vedette. Simca acquired Ford France in 1954 because the company wanted to expand into the luxury car market, which proved to be successful for only a few years. The added Chambord name indicated the trim level, there were also the Beaulieu, Marly and Presidence versions of which the Presidence was of course the most luxurious; the Chambord was ranked one level beneath.
The Vedette Chambord was produced from 1958 to 1961 and had a 2351 cc V8 engine which was good for 84 hp @ 4800 rpm and a top speed of 145 kph. About 61,835 Vedettes Chambord have been sold, making it a quite common car in France mainly. Nowadays a Vedette Chambord in a good condition like the one on the picture has only second-hand car value.
