Price:   £sold


Chassis number: 2515MOT

License number: DE-218-PP


This stunning Salmson S4C single seater was initially constructed in the 1970s but not completed until it found a new owner in 2014. Now finished to a very high standard and running extremely well. Best of all this delightful car is road registered, think of all the fun you could have.


The build utilised the original 1500cc twin overhead camshaft engine, one of the best designs of the period, as well as the original gearbox and axles. The engine, on stripping, was found to be in excellent condition is now fitted with twin SU carburetters and a straight through exhaust. The gearbox internals were also found to be ok so it was just cleaned and re-assembled, the differential ratio was raised by fitting one from a Salmson SA61. There is an electric water pump installed in the cooling system and the radiator was renewed. The Dynastart has been rebuilt and all new electrical system fitted.


The chassis and body were new made in the 1970s and finished off in 2014. New tyres are fitted and a spare pair of wheels and tyres are included.


Road registered in France as a 1933 Salmson S4C cabriolet single seat.
