EXCELLENT!!! :)

This a very rare pre-serie P60 , with it specific bumper, smooth roof, etc. Produced at about 700 samples in 1959 without agreement of H.T.Pigozzi (SIMCA's manager). The cars were stored for several months at Bordeaux on the port "Quai de Bacalan" ,therefore nicknamed "BACALAN", then sold to Eastern block countries: Poland, Czeschoslovakia and Hungary and few samples to some French workers of SIMCA.
That's a good find :king:

Oh ben ça alors… Je suis tout confus… Je tiens ŕ remercier mes parents, mes instituteurs, mes professeurs, mes compagnes, et le réalisateur Pierre Chevalier surtout, sans qui jamais je ne serais arrivé ŕ un tel sommet. Merci ŕ tous, merci !

I read somewhere that they (the factory workers) were forbidden to re-sell them. The cars were supposed to return to the factory whether their owners didn't want them anymore.
