    G'day

    Would have been an awfully slow fire engine!

    Chrysler 200 rebadged as a Lancia?

    Nope, the current Thema is a re-badged Chrysler 300. The re-badged 200 is sold as the Lancia Flavia>

    That's my sister in law's name so she wants one!

    My dad has a 200c so she may get to ride in it when she visits.

    Your SIL's name is Lancia? :confuse:

    "(Ana) Flavia"

    That's a relief, I though it was "200"... :P

    Marketing that car as a Lancia Flavia is like driving a stake through my heart :cry: --well, Fiat treated the Lancia name no better in the 1980s.

    Everyone should have the pleasure of driving a 50s Lancia sedan or 70s Lancia Stratos rally car just to know how advanced, capable and thrilling these cars used to be.

    Speaking of rare Lancias:

    That Lancia woodie must be a derivation of the Aurelia. Me want!

    Yep, an Aurelia woody. Very rare indeed. I have personally never seen one, and I've seen some weird stuff.

    Lol, no, but props for coming up with that oddball. It's not exactly a street car and is reportedly the first production race car in the world to feature an air dam.

    Alpine A110? Odd sight with a non Euro background.
  • berriberri Posts: 4,315
    I guess that rules out Checker! Kind of looks like one of those cabs from the rear.

    It's a Datsun 2000 BRE Roadster. Check out the '59 De Ville tailights too.

    Looks a helluva lot like a distorted Alfa 8C. Even the same color as the model I have sitting on my shelf.

    An 8C that had way too much plastic surgery.

    Gee I wonder if that would suck up the leaves in my driveway?

    That's one pricey leaf blower. :D

    that, birds, stray trash blowing around, racoons, etc.

    I would really consider putting some kind of screen on that snout.

    The maroon car w the big snout is a Perana Z1, the body is by Zagato, the motor by Chevrolet (LS6) and the chassis by Perana of South Africa. I guess I like it better than most of you. It reminds me of specials like the Bizzarinni Strada and the Gordon-Keeble.

    Gordon-Keeble. Like this one? image

    G'day

    That looks gorgeous. I think it is French post war from the lines, but not sure of coach-builder or underlying chassis.

    The shadow just below the top of the screen, makes me think it might be a Sedanca De Ville rather than a coupe or sedan body. However they pretty much disappeared before the second world war, so suspect it is a coach-built vehicle

    Cheers

    G'day

    This has been niggling at me all afternoon. Sort of like a Chapron body, possibly on a Delahaye chassis. But I am not sure that is right.

    There was also a gorgeous body on a Talbot Lago with approximately this shape to nose, but proportions look wrong.

    Cheers

    This is a Delahaye - probably a 235 - and the body looks really swoopy and curvy, so is the coachbuilder Sauchock (? spelling)?
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,795
    You guys are on the ball, it is indeed a 1949 Delahaye 175 with a Sedan DeVille body by Saoutchik.

    Saoutchik was probably the most flamboyant of the French coachbuilders that dominated auto styling during the 30s and 40s. Changes in French tax laws killed their business in the 50s and the Italians took over.

    The pictured car went for $1.8 million @ Barret-Jackson last week.
