    This is NOT a Ferrari!

    "What we have here for auction is the body, chassis and trim parts from a Simca Eight, which was also styled by Farina."

    No, this car has no drivetrain at all. Other than the fact that the car was bodied by Farina, it has nothing at all in common with any Ferrari. Listing the car as a 166 Inter is purely misleading.

    It's sad because the simca is a pretty car on it's own-a bargain compared to a cistallia. They appear on ebay evry once in a while, often looking like this one. I think the car is smaller than a cistallia or a 166 though-not sure how convincing a "replica" made from one would be-
