The Salmson S4 is a mid-size executive-level car introduced as the Salmson S4 C by Société des Moteurs Salmson in Autumn 1932. ] It was the manufacturer's principal or sole model for the next twenty years. The star of the Salmson stand at the 31 st Paris Motor Show in October 1937 should have the Salmson S4-E. The car's 4-cylinder 2312 cc power unit extended the S4 range up, into the 13 CV category. In fact, the car was placed at the far end of the stand without fanfare and without any accompanying publicity campaign, so that many visitors to the show will have missed it completely.
The Salmson S4-61 replaced the S4 DA (see above this site) for 1938. Technically very little changed.
