Renault R16-- the original hatchback...
I think they used to advertise these as "sedan-wagons" and ran adds titled "road love".
I bought mine in Atlanta in 1972 just as the entire dealer network came crashing down. Traded a 1969 Fiat 124 for it. You can see I was a real glutton for punishment.
Mine overheated and almost caught on fire in Valdosta Georgia. Pulled into a Chevy dealer and found out it was a Peugeot dealership as well. Little French guy inside who could fix it, but took a couple of days to send parts from Atlanta by bus.
I also think it had two different wheelbases because of torsion bars which ran across the rear axles, i.e. the drivers side wheelbase was different than the passenger side.
