1951 Salmson S4-61 Pillarless Saloon

18,950.00

We located this rare gem in Southern France. A 1951 Salmson 61L saloon that has been in a private museum for the last thirty years. The bodywork is rust free as you would expect from being in a warm climate the whole of it’s life. Everything is original and unrestored. Twin cam engine with Cotal gearbox. The fabric interior has survived in outstanding condition, it just needs a good clean. Cobwebs at no extra charge

The S4-E incorporated the technically advanced features of the S4 DA such as an engine with twin overhead camshaft, hemispherical piston heads with the centrally positioned spark plugs. The chassis featured rack and pinion steering, with independent suspension at the front. However, the front suspension was now refined through the addition of longitudinal torsion bars. Commentators noted that the new engine and suspension enhancements gave rise to a combination of performance and road-holding that was among the best in class for the time. Another novelty for the S4-E was a hydraulically controlled brake circuit in place of the then conventional mechanical linkage.

Its very rare to find a period car so unmolested, even rarer to find a rare French marque. As with most quality cars of the time the car is RHD.
