Need Help With Euro-Car ID

Recommended Posts

I bought this slide taken in Cannes in 1958, and need the ID of the 2nd car from the left.

 

post-87514-0-75934800-1443484028_thumb.j

 

From left, Mercedes-Benz 300, Salmson S4-61, Peugeot 203, super rare prewar Peugeot 402 Eclipse (retractable hardtop) Décapotable, and a Citroen DS 19. In the background, another rare bird, a '58 DeSoto Diplomat-Custom Convertible Coupe, an export model with a Plymouth body and DeSoto front end.

 

The car in question looks kind of like a Lancia or other Italian make, but I've not nailed it yet.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks to nzcarnerd and Leif for answering my query!

I have had some discussion on this one with others more expert than me on Euro cars and agreement is that the car is a circa 1949 Salmson S4 berline.

Thanks a million nzcarnerd and Leif, for nailing the mystery car! I would have looked and looked and probably never come up with the Salmson marque.

 

You're the greatest!
