Simca - Simca Ariane

The Simca Ariane was introduced in 1957, quoted as the large car with the small 1.3 litre engine, an existing design that was put into production no doubt in response to the Suez crisis, which led to new taxation band to penalise cars with larger capacity engines. But there was a Ariane V8 version, using the 2.4 litre Vedette engine originally designed by Ford, and the "Ariane 8" were built between 1958 and 1961. Simca Ariane production went to 1963.

Simca Ariane original tyre size was quoted as 165-380 which is identical to tyre size 165R15. Blockley produces the perfect 165VR15 tyre - see full details at the link below:
