Simca/Sunbeam/Talbot

Sunbeam was a marque registered by John Marston Co. Ltd in 1888. The company first made bicycles, and from 1901 cars, too. In 1920 Sunbeam merged with Darracq. Darracq also owned "Talbot", therefore the new company was named "Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq (STD). STD was bought by the Roots Group in 1935. 3 years later, a new marque was created: "Sunbeam-Talbot". In 1964 Chrysler took over Sunbeam and Talbot. Peugeot bought the rights and licenses in 1978, and a year later every Chrysler in Europe was renamed to Talbot. From 1982 the brands Talbot and Sunbeam disappeared.
Simca (=Société Industrielle de Mécanique et Carosserie Automobile) was a French car manufacturer, founded in 1934. In the beginning, it produced badge engineered Fiat-models. In 1958, Chrysler bought 15% of the Simca-shares, in 1959 Simca bought Talbot-Lagot. Until 1971 Chrysler took over 100% of the Simca-shares. In 1978 Simca was sold to Peugeot, and the Simca cars now were called Talbot.
