Introduction from WV, USA and requesting input

Post by ccuffWV1 »

Hello fellow car enthusiasts:

I am reaching out to the forum members to ask for help in identifying the car in the attached picture for a friend who recently lost his mother to Alzheimer's Disease. The car was driven in Egypt by my friend's father prior to his ejection from the country because of his religion. My friend thought it might be a Citroen or a Peugeot from the 1940's or 50's but I couldn't match it to anything in that era that I could find Googling so it might be something completely different.
unknown car

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Fiat 1500 (1935) Being Egypt/Italian it makes sense.

I hope that helps.

That was quick Alasdair - I was expecting Neil to snap that one. Just looks like a generic 'car' to me :(

It is a Fiat 508C,
They were made in several forms in different countries, tis one was made in Germany, but looks very similar.

Don't know about a generic car but it's virtually indistinguishable from the equivalent Simca - which, I must admit, was my immediate response to seeing the piccie.
