The 'Talbot' name lay dormant after 1959 once Simca had bought out Talbot-Lago for the factory space it offered at Suresnes. In 1978 the French Government persuaded the Peugeot PSA Groupe to take over the ailing Chrysler Europe operation which consisted of Simca in France and the Rootes Group in the UK. In 1979 Chrysler-Simca cars were rebranded as 'Talbot-Simca' (until 1980 when 'Simca' was deleted) and British cars simply as 'Talbot'. By 1984 the 'Talbot' name was hardly being used, but it was carried on some cars until 1987 and on vans until 1994.
